And The Winner Is.... 2011 ARIA Awards!

Yesterday was one of the biggest nights in the Australian music industries calendar with the 2011 ARIA Awards in a star studded ceremony held at Allphones Arena in Sydney Olympic Park.

This years event was special for many reasons, ARIA was celebrating it 25th anniversary, Delta Goodrem returns to the stage and The Wiggles and our pop princess Kylie Minogue being inducted into the Hall of Fame!
The night was entertainment from start to finish with many Australian artist’s performing including Goyte, Boy & Bear, Art vs Science, Cut Copy and Guy Sebastian.
Stand out award winners were Sydney’s own band Boy & Bear picking up five awards including Album Of The Year.  Gotye who was crowned Best Male Artist and also picked up three further awards including Single and Video of the Year for Somebody That I Used To Know Ft.
