"I am beyond honored to be hosting this monumental Juno Awards in the greatest city on Earth," Drake says. "I want to bring a youthful energy to the show and encourage people to be excited about what Canadian music has to offer. See you all at the show."

At the 2010 show, Drake performed a duet with Justin Bieber and was nominated for four awards. He won two for Best Rap Recording Artist and Best New Artist. Drake will find out if he'll be a host and a nominee when nominations are announced on February 1.

The 2011 Juno Awards -- the 40th anniversary of the awards show -- will air live on Sunday, March 27, 2011 on CTV.
