Michael Buble is headed back to the Juno Awards as host next year.

CTV says Buble will step into the spotlight as chaperone for the televised celebration of Canadian music, which is being held in Ottawa.

It’s the second time he’s accepted hosting duties.

The Burnaby, B.C., native previously took the gig for the 2013 Junos in Regina, and won a Canadian Screen Award for his efforts months later.

He lost out on his sole Juno nomination at that evening’s show, however. Justin Bieber snagged the fan choice award in a public vote.

Michael Buble is no stranger to winning Junos though — he has 12 of them.

He first grabbed the best new artist award in 2004 and went on to get recognition for hit singles like “Home” and “Haven’t Met You Yet.” His best-selling “Christmas” album also had the unusual feat of winning album of the year in 2012.

Buble has just released his ninth studio album “Nobody But Me,” which features a selection of swinging jazz standards and classic pop tunes that inspired him to get into music as a young man.

Next year’s Juno Awards will air April 2, 2017. Organizers say tickets for the event will go on sale Saturday through Ticketmaster.
