Nelly Nervous About Hosting

nelly-furtado-juno-awardsNelly Furtado will be hosting and performing at Sunday’s “Juno Awards” (think Grammys for Canada). The Canadian singer/songwriter attended a press conference at the Delta Hotel on Saturday in Saskatoon, Canada. Here’s what she had to say:

On planning for the Juno Awards: “I have to admit it’s been really stressful, but a good kind of stressful. I’ve put a lot of thought and energy into it, it’s really important to me to do my best and provide as much input as possible and try to make my impression on it (the show) somehow. We are busy, up to our necks in planning and preparations and I’m nervous. I’m finally nervous now.”

On hosting: “It’s very different from performing; I think my performance will be the most relaxing part of the evening for me. I’m serious about it being a fun night for everybody, that’s the only thing I’m serious about.

On handling all the requisite emcee banter and costume changes: “There are a lot of segments, a lot of wardrobe changes. It’s going to be a circus in my change room, anyway.”

On her hometown of Victoria, B.C. proclaiming March 21 “Nelly Furtado Day”: “It was a really real moment for me, and I was emotional and I was happy. I saw a lot of family, friends. You know, old friends from school that I hadn’t seen in years, relatives, family members, and teachers. It was really, really incredible. Having that honor at Centennial Square with the mayor there in Victoria was — it felt good. it really did feel good.”
