The 100th Grey Cup will feature one of the greatest collections of Canadian musical talent ever assembled, including Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Marianas Trench, and Gordon Lightfoot lighting up the Sirius XM Grey Cup Half-Time Show on November 25. Leading up to the championship game, Burton Cummings and Johnny Reid will headline a special Kick-Off Show at Rogers Centre in Toronto.

The 100th Grey Cup airs live on TSN, TSN Mobile TV, and on TSN Radio and TEAM Radio stations across the country.  Live radio streaming of the 100th Grey Cup is also available on TSN.ca. French-language coverage of the 100th Grey Cup is available on RDS.

"We are absolutely thrilled to unveil an All-Canadian, All-Star line-up that features the biggest pop star in the world, the woman who gave us one of the biggest songs ever, one of the hottest young bands in the country, an iconic balladeer, a rock-and-roll legend, and one of this country's leading entertainers," said Mark Cohon, Commissioner of the Canadian Football League.

"This array of stars will command a huge and diverse audience, entertaining our most loyal fans and attracting new ones to our game's greatest showcase.  It spans genres and generations.  And it's quintessentially Canadian and undoubtedly world class, at the same time."

"Congratulations to the CFL for assembling such an outstanding array of homegrown musical talent for the one of the biggest sporting events in Canadian history – the 100th Grey Cup," said Stewart Johnston, President, TSN.  "The addition of these artists to the CFL's biggest stage will certainly make TSN's broadcast of the 100th Grey Cup even more extraordinary.  We are extremely excited to bring live coverage of this unforgettable event to fans across the country."

"From the day we started planning the 100th Grey Cup, we declared it would be a celebration of our storied past and our bright future," Cohon added.

"The superbly talented performers who will grace this grand stage symbolize the fact that  our game – and the enduring symbol of national unity and pride that is the Grey Cup – belongs to every Canadian and every generation. And we couldn't be prouder or more excited."
