ARIA Awards On Tonight – Reality Stars Are Nominated And Performing
The annual ARIA awards on being held in Sydney tonight and GO will be televising it from 7.30pm.
In year’s gone past the reality stars were not seen as quite as worthy to be there but times have changed and there does not appear to be the cultural cringe anymore. Jessica Mauboy will be perfoming live in a line up which includes Alicia Keys. Samantha Jade and Connie from Sneaky Sound System.
Guy Sebastian is nominated for five awards including Album of the Year for Armageddon, Best Male, Best Pop Release and Song of The Year. A SMH article thinks that it is Guy Sebastian’s year to win as well as Jessica Mauboy having a shot at the Best Female.
What we do know is he won’t be walking the red carpet looking like this.

Reality TV nominees do better in the public voting categories then in peer voted categories. Funny that.
Keith Urban and Matt Corby are also nominated for Best Male and Best Live Act.
Song of the Year is full of reality stars including Guy Sebastian, Samantha Jade, Matt Corby, Justice Crew and Timomatic.
I will be interviewing on the black carpet this afternoon trying to wrangle some of these reality stars and the good news is a friend of mine who is a photographer is coming with me so I might get some good shots not my shitty iphone ones.
Oh and the group being inducted into the Hall of Fame this is evening is Air Supply!
