The opening night awards are a marathon, not a sprint, and one of the most refreshing parts of the evening — other than the delighted artists and their often heartfelt speeches — are the performances. Because what's a celebration of music without actual music? 

From rapper Tobi's unforgettable and empowering opening number and the high-octane country of BFFs Lindsay Ell and MacKenzie Porter to the inspired art-punk-pop of Klô Pelgag and the stirring power of Ammoye, Kirk Diamond and Töme's collaboration, as well as raucous, radical shredding from Crown Lands, there's something for every music fan in these performances.

And don't forget to check out future potential stars Monowhales, a shortlisted band from the 2020/2021 Allan Slaight Juno Master Class.
