Canadian-born crooner Michael Buble will no longer be hosting the Brit Awards
ET Canada has confirmed that Buble has cancelled his appearance at the awards show to focus on the well-being of his 3-year-old son Noah and his battle with cancer.
In November last year, the Buble family revealed the tragic news in a statement to ET Canada: “We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the U.S.”
“We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing,” the statement read.
The “Haven’t Met You Yet” singer, 41, previously teased he was hosting the Brit Awards with a photo on Instagram:
As of now, Buble is still expected to host the 2017 Juno Awards.
