(December 22, 2020 – Toronto, ON) CBC has tapped Rick Mercer to host the celebration of saying goodbye to 2020, a year we’re certain no one will miss, and to welcome in 2021, which everyone is hoping will be a vastly improved spin around the sun.

Mercer will be joined by an all-Canadian lineup that includes performances by multi-platinum recording artist Tyler Shaw joined by Simone Denny; alt-pop duo Neon Dreams from Halifax, NS; folk singer-songwriter William Prince from Winnipeg, MB; Alan Doyle and friends from around Newfoundland and Labrador; folk/rock group The Jerry Cans and special guests from Iqaluit, NU; pop icon Lights and producer Felix Cartal performing together in Vancouver, BC; country star Brett Kissel from Flat Lake, AB; hip-hop/electro trio Random Recipe from Montreal, QC; and the Maritime Bhangra Dancers from Halifax, NS.
