This year’s Juno Awards gala found an average audience of 1.4 million on Sunday night across television, radio and online platforms, according to figures provided by the public broadcaster.

According to CBC, the overnight TV ratings showed an average audience of 1.26 million.

This year saw CBC begin its six-year broadcast agreement with the event, airing the gala over its main network as well as on CBCMusic.ca and CBC Radio One.

It also teamed with Twitter on an accompanying live stream on the social platform. According to Twitter, more than 26,000 people tuned into the social stream.

The show hit a peak TV audience of 1.5 million viewers when Barenaked Ladies and Steven Page were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame (at approximately 9:24 p.m. EST). Their performance was highly anticipated, as it marked the first time Page had performed with his former band since his departure in 2009.

According to the CBC, 230,000 people have streamed the event after the night of its live broadcast.

The 2017 broadcast on CTV attracted 1.2 million viewers to the live showing and another 278,000 to the repeat show at midnight (EST).

This year’s Juno sponsors included TD Bank, Apple Music, SOCAN, Music Canada, CBC Music and FACTOR (Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings).
