Robin Thicke has pulled out of tonight's Juno Awards.

CTV has announced that the artist will no longer attend and perform at the show after being placed on mandatory voice rest.

Thicke had to postpone shows on Friday and Saturday as well.

He also cancelled three performances last month after splitting with his wife.

There was an online petition asking Juno organizers to boot Thicke from the show because of criticism over his song Blurred Lines, with some people saying that it degrades women.

Still scheduled to perform tonight are Brett Kissel, Classified, Dean Brody, Gord Bamford, Matt Mays, OneRepublic, Sarah McLachlan, Serena Ryder, The Sheepdogs, Tegan and Sara, Tim Hicks, Travis Good and Walk Off The Earth.

There will also be a taped performance by Arcade Fire.

The broadcast starts at 9 p.m.
