Juno hosts Arden, Montgomery pay tribute to host city Calgary, share memories

CALGARY — Canadian singer Jann Arden and Olympic gold medallist Jon Montgomery dove into the Juno Awards telecast with a feisty monologue paying tribute to Calgary.

The duelling hosts fired jokes back and forth about their memories of the host city where Arden was born.

Montgomery told the audience he has a solid connection to Calgary because he trained there for the 2010 Winter Olympics and also met his wife in the city.

Early Juno winners included the Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" for single of the year.

Walk off the Earth went home with the group of the year trophy.
