The winners, highlights and performances of the 2020 ARIA Awards.

With huge international stars on the lineup.

The ARIA Awards were on Wednesday night, live from The Star Sydney, with the glamorous Delta Goodrem hosting, and a slew of artists performing, including Amy Shark, Tame Impala, Sampa the Great, Lime Cordiale and Sia. 
 


International sensation Billie Eilish patched in from LA to sing her new single Therefore I Am and had a message for her Aussie fans. 

 

Zambian born, Australian Artist, Sampa the Great took out Best Hip Hop Release, Best Independent Release and Female Artist of the Year.
She also gave a profound performance of her single Final Form. 

 

The groovy Teskey Brothers won Best Blues & Roots Album for Live at the Forum.


Male Artist of the year went to the legendary Archie Roach, who was also inducted into the Aria Hall of Fame, and gave an incredibly moving performance of his single Took the Children Away. 

 

Perth band, Tame Impala were up for seven nominations and claimed five awards, including the coveted Album of the Year. They also livestreamed their performance of their smash hit single On Track.



A huge highlight of the evening was when Delta Goodrem, Amy Shark, Marica Hines, Christine Anu, The McClymonts and Montaigne paid tribute to the late Helen Reddy covering her feminist anthem ‘I Am Woman’, which was introduced by former Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

 

We also got another huge international artist livestreaming, this time from Abbey Road Studios in London.
The incomparable Sam Smith, who crooned their new single Diamonds


Other winners on the night included Amy Shark who won Best Pop Release for Everybody Rise and Best Australian Live Act.
Song of the Year went to 5 Seconds of Summer for Teeth, and Best International Artist went to Harry Styles. 

And Guy Sebastian was super happy to score an ARIA for Best Video for Standing with You - presented (virtually) by Robbie Williams.

 

Congratulations to all the winner.
