UPDATE: In an upset, Lido Pimienta’s La Papessa won the 2017 Polaris. You can watch an archive of the whole Polaris gala above.
The Polaris Music Prize Gala is tonight (9/18) in Toronto, where it will be decided what Canadian album from the past year is most deserving of this year’s coveted award. It’s probably going to be Leonard Cohen’s You Want it Darker, but we’ll see. After performances by some of the nominees, including Weaves, Tanya Tagaq, Leif Vollebekk, and more, they’ll award the prize. You can livestream the gala (which started at 8 PM EST) above.
