Michael Buble has pulled out of hosting the 2017 Juno Awards in April in order to focus on saving the life of his son, Noah.
The 3-year-old continues to fight his battle with liver cancer.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Mike Cosentino, senior VP of content and programming at Bell Media, said: “Our thoughts continue to be with Michael – we respect his ongoing commitment to his family and look forward to working with him again in the future.”
It’s been confirmed that Russel Peters and Bryan Adams will take over Buble’s hosting duties of the awards show – which is Canada’s equivalent of the Grammys - in his absence.
The 41-year-old and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, first announced that their son had been diagnosed with the disease back in November 2016.
“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the U.S,” the couple wrote in a statement.
“We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children."
The Feeling Good singer - who is currently taking a break from the spotlight to care for Noah - updated fans on the little boy’s condition in a statement to Us Weekly in February.
"We are so grateful to report that our son Noah has been progressing well during his treatment and the doctors are very optimistic,” he wrote.
“He has been brave throughout and we continue to be inspired by his courage.”
“We thank God for the strength he has given all of us.”
