The last 12 months have been a crazy ride for Simu Liu. The Kim’s Convenience star made his MCU debut last summer in Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the second-biggest movie of the year in the U.S., transforming him into a household name. He’s since followed that up with a hosting gig on Saturday Night Live in November, and he’s about to extend his hosting skills by helming the 2022 Juno Awards, the annual ceremony celebrating Canadian music.

This year will also be the first in-person version of the event since 2019, with the last two happening remotely due to COVID-19.
