Robin Thicke has cancelled out at the last minute on his Juno Awards appearance due to health issues.

According to a news release posted March 30 at JunoAwards.ca, the "Blurred Lines" hitmaker has axed his much anticipated appearance at Canada's premier awards show after being placed on "mandatory vocal rest."

The 37-year-old L.A. born singer, whose appearance at the event was being protested due to the controversial lyric content of "Blurred Lines," also postponed dates also on March 28 in Indio, Calif. at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino and March 29 in San Franciso, Calif at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.

Thicke, who recently split with wife actress Paula Patton, also cancelled a Canadian date earlier this month in Rama, ON at Casino Rama.

Previously announced performing artists still slated for the Junos include: Sarah McLachlan, OneRepublic, Robin Thicke, Tegan and Sara, Walk off the Earth and many others, as well as an exclusive taped TV performance from South America by Arcade Fire.

Hosted by Serena Ryder, Johnny Reid and Classified, the 2014 Juno Awards will go ahead as scheduled March 30 in Winnipeg, MB at MTS Centre and air live on CTV.

Early Juno winners include: Serena Ryder for Artist of the Year, Arcade Fire for Album of the Year ("Reflektor"), Drake for Rap Album ("Nothing was the Same"), Tegan and Sara for Pop Album ("Heartthrob") and Bruno Mars for International Album ("Unorthodox Jukebox").
