Altiyan Childs Nominated For An Aria Award

Finally some good news for last year’s The X Factor winner Altiyan Childs. This morning he was nominated for an Aria award in the category of Most Popular Australia Artist. It is open to the public vote so you never know he could win. Altiyan is also up for highest selling album.

The other people nominated in this category were Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy and Draupt.  Guy Sebastian also picked up four nominations for his hit single, Who’s that Girl (feat Eve). (Source: SMH)

It was unlikely Jessica Mauboy was at the nominations this morning as she flew up to Darwin to be with her father who was badly burned in an accident.

Also I heard a rumour on Twitter that Alytian Childs is back in The X Factor family and will be performing on the show next week.

I hope Guy gives him a dressing down like he did with Mitch Callaway.

Hey Boner, my little sister had that album.
BDD – he’s also a nursing home snatcher.

A well deserved nominations. Most of his concerts were sold out and every single soul in those concerts were all impressed and in awe of how solid performer he is. His popularity and dedication to his fans can be seen with a long que at the meet & greet after every show. I cannot imagine anybody making his own signature to the song ‘Somewhere in the World’ as how Altiyan did. As the saying goes – ‘You cannot take a good man down’.

‘You cannot take a good man down’
Yep Lenora, 100% correct, but you can ‘go down on a good man’.

Raver, helium-driven vocals will improve any song, including My Sharona.

Remember Steven Bradbury, the Aussie speed ice skater who won our first ever gold Winter Olympics medal – the last man standing!

15 smauge { 12.19.11 at 8:21 am }

Yeah, but we were all pleased to see him win Georgie 😉

16 Georgie { 12.19.11 at 8:31 am }

Absolutely smauge, no question about it. Just pointing out the results of a lack of competition and we are sadly lacking in good music at the mo.

I was one of those who thought at first that he was a talented, honest guy who’d had some bad breaks, but the ‘victim’ card no longer works for me. Unfortunately, though, he has way too many facebook groupies who validate every crap decision he makes and every bit of bad press he gets by blaming the media, ex-mates etc., for having it in for him., even though he’s a 36 year old man (‘child’ might be a better description) who can (or should be able to) think for himself. The sad thing is that the groupies are, almost without exception, ‘mature’ women who should know better. Wonder how their own kids turned (or will turn) out?
