All The Wildest Moments You Might Have Missed From The 2019 ARIAs
This year's ceremony had everything from international stars, local legends, reptiles, and even an appearance from Agro!
Here's everything you might have missed from the 2019 ARIAs!
Hilltop Hoods Throw A Wildcard Mention Into Their Acceptance Speech
After winning the award for Best Australian Live Act, the hip-hop group shouted out to their wives, children, crew, and even managed to slip in a reference to convicted pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his prison cell in August this year.
Sophie Monk's Britney Moment
It was a scene almost reminiscent of Britney Spears' iconic 2001 VMAs performance where she shared the stage with a giant albino Burmese python.
Except for the fact she rudely didn't perform a Bardot hit while holding the snake and that Robert Irwin was on hand as a reptile wrangler.
A Paul Kelly Gaffe And Tones' Inspiring Speech
Paul Kelly and Tones and I have both clocked up an impressive amount of nominations at the ARIAs this year -- but there was a bit of a mixup when Veronica and Lewis mistakenly read out the wrong name for Best Independent Act.
In what was quickly referred to as the ARIAs' own 'Moonlight/La La Land' Oscars moment, Paul Kelly's name was called before it was revealed that Tones had actually earned the gong.
And to boot? She gave a super inspiring speech as she accepted the pointy award.
Halsey Got Messy
After arriving on the red carpet in a dress with brightly coloured scribbles all over it, Halsey stuck with the ~art~ theme and performed her hit Graveyard while getting messy with some paint.
U2 Presented An Award... From Perth
Look, it's a shame that U2's tour schedule didn't line up better with Australian music's night of nights because the Irish rock legends were in Sydney just a night or two ago. Nonetheless, they kindly took part in the ARIAs ahead of their show in Perth, presenting Best Group to The Teskey Brothers.
The ARIAs Reminded Us All That We've Aged Horribly
A fun reminder that songs including Vanessa Amorosi's "Absolutely Everybody", Madison Avenue's "Don't Call Me Baby" and Savage Garden's "The Animal Song" came out a whole two decades ago.
Agro Made An ~ARIA Connection~ With A 2019 Comeback
Agro rocked up on the ARIAs red carpet and we're just hoping he's campaigning for a big return to the small screen in 2020. Agro proved he's still punk by awarding Amyl and the Sniffers with Best Rock Album. We have to stan.
Human Nature Inducted Into The ARIAs Hall Of Fame
Save up all your tears because Human Nature still know how to make you cry with their sweet harmonies, '90s bangers, Motown classics, and perfectly synchronised boy band moves.
Guy Sebastian Got Heaps Emotional After Winning Song Of The Year
After being nominated in the category many times before, and the fact that he was hosting the ceremony, Guy was absolutely blown away after winning Song Of The Year with "Choir".
He thanked his mum, he teared up at the thought of even performing the emotionally charged song and then tore the stage up with his live rendition of the track.
