Tina Arena: 'Chains', The Veronicas, Jessica Mauboy: VIDEO + ARIA Hall of Fame speech

This. Everything.

Tina Arena KILLS IT, owns it, with this performance of her classic, the song that turned her career on its head, opening the doors for incredible things: 'Chains'.

The Veronicas and Jessica Mauboy intro'ed Tina's song spectacularly.

Tina then took it away - including her breath, replacing it with spine tingles.

Also, Tina gave the speech of her LIFE in accepting the ARIA 'Hall of Fame' award:

YOU CAN WATCH THE WHOLE OF THAT SPEECH HERE.

Twenty years after becoming the first female to win Album of the Year for her record Don't Ask, Tina said:

"Who decides in radio that a woman at a certain point in her life no longer becomes viable?" she said.

"Women and men of all ages have something interesting to say but what I have struggled with is the complete ostracisation of a woman at a certain age.

"I want to still acknowledge that ladies over 40 are still in the game — my darling friend behind me Miss Kylie Minogue, the wonderful Madonna, J-Lo, Annie Lennox, my Lord the list does go on. 

"Keep doing what you are doing, and keep doing what you do best lady because we will decide when it's time for us to stop."

She added:

"What excites me now is knowing there never needs to be firsts like these again," she said.

"The world has opened up and I'm so happy that I may have played just a very very small role in making those things easier and more accessible for women to come."
