Hit makers Sheppard, known for their song Geronimo, won for Best Group and apologised to the 5SOS fans — “I am so sorry girls, I am incredibly sorry,” front man George Sheppard said.

The Wiggles made history by winning the category for Best Children’s Award for the 12th time in a row. One Direction’s Harry Styles even stopped them for a selfie!

Best Country Album went to Casey Chambers, who has only just recently returned to the music scene after taking a couple of months off to recover from vocal cord nodules. She told reporters on the red carpet that she was given an expensive dress from her stylist to wear but chickened out at the last minute and went with something out of her wardrobe from 10 years ago!

An emotional Molly Meldrum was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame but rather than have his moment, he reminded everyone about the more important things in life, and took a moment to pray for cricketer Phil Hughes saying, “Our prayers are with you Phil and your family.”

The night was finished off with a performance by Best Adult Contemporary winners Neil Finn and Paul Kelly. They entertained the crowd with a mash up of their anthems Don’t Stand So Close To Me and Four Seasons in One Day.
