ARIA Awards Red Carpet 2011

The 2011 ARIA Awards were presented on Sunday night in a ceremony held at Allphones Arena, at Sydney Olympic Park before a capacity audience - members of the music industry and some vocal music fans.

The event kicked off with a performance by West Australian MC, Drapht, and included stunning performances by Gotye and Kimbra (perhaps the performance of the night), Boy & Bear (who won five awards that evening), Art vs Science, Gurrumul with Missy Higgins (another breathtaking act), Cut Copy, The Living End, Guy Sebastian (that voice - c'mon, even if you're not an Idol fan, it's pretty sensational) and a moving, beautifully sung performance by Delta Goodrem who paid tribute to the artists who have passed away over the ARIA awards' 25 year history.

Highlights were of course the presentation of the (long overdue) Hall of Fame awards to worthy recipients Kylie Minogue and the biggest hit around this house, The Wiggles, with the PM Julia Gillard inducting our pop princess and actor David Wenham inducting the skivvied-quartet.

Other biggest highlight? Why, the red carpet.

My personal faves were: Dannii and Kylie Minogue, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Missy Higgins,
