Why them: You may love to mock it, but the CanRock union between power-stance specialist Chad Kroeger and eyeliner enthusiast Avril Lavigne serves as the closest thing this country has to a patriotic power couple. The duo actually got married on Canada Day. Lavigne released a self-titled album last fall that got lost in a flurry of high-profile fourth-quarter releases, so hosting an awards show could give it a bit of a bump. Nickelback is slated to release a new album this year. Add in oodles of familiarity with the Junos and you have a distinct possibility here. Just imagine the potential for self-mocking skits — and possible pop-culture redemption. Hey, they might even have a sense of humour; last year, when Michael Bublé announced he was hosting the 2013 Junos Awards in Regina, he did so from the centre of a Chavril sandwich and it actually wasn’t the worst. Why not: You may love to mock them a little too much. The mere mention of the word “Chavril” provokes strong emotions. Odds: Entirely plausible.
