ARIA Awards Fiasco

I only watched the broadcast very briefly and that was to see Tim Rogers & Kasey Chambers present an award. I decided to miss everything else because I knew it would be excruciating to watch and all I would do was complain for the whole evening. Like making a decision not to get into a car with a drunk driver because you know it’s going to crash.

Lucky, I didn’t watch because apparently it was even worse than I thought it would be. I felt really sorry for Jessica Mauboy, who will forever be remembered for referring to a ‘debutt’ album twice. (Like a scene from a Jennifer Aniston movie where she says Ver-sace).
