Sussan Mourad Aria Awards

The ARIA Awards are easily THE biggest music event on the Australian calendar. To put it simply, the ARIA Awards are the Australian equivalent of the Grammy Awards – celebrating all good things in Australian artists and Australian music.

Last year I was lucky enough to co-host the 2013 David Jones ARIAS Red Black Carpet alongside James Kerely and David Jones Ambassador, Jess Gomes for the Nine Network. The ARIA Awards will be exploding again this Wednesday 26 November 2014, but this year on Channel Ten. Sadly that means I wont be co-hosting again this year as Ten is using Channel Ten talent… sob sigh… haha. But am psyched to tune in (or perhaps attend) with the ARIAs having the two most popular boy bands in the world, One Direction and Five Seconds of Summer (a.k.a. 1D and 5SOS) performing live (Yes, earplugs for all the screams may be needed), as well as mega star Katy Perry and Charlie XCX of Iggy Azalea’s #1 hit “Fancy” (but you already know) presenting awards. That of course is without mentioning the incredible local artists that will be attending and performing including Chet Faker, Jess Mauboy and Vance Joy to name a few. So you could say that its a pretty good line up, especially for a Wednesday night!

So as a little throwback – I know, I know, its not Thursday yet – I thought I’d post a couple of fan girl moment shots from last year’s ARIAS Red Carpet where I got to meet and chat with 2 of my favourites – Alecia Keys and Lorde, I know, no biggie! Here also further down the page is a little highlights reel from the live Red Carpet, courtesy of ARIAS / Channel Nine. Enjoy!
