Cat Empire are actually so much better than that Hello song. The Chariot, Two Shoes, Misere, No Longer There (fair hit down under last year) are top tunes.

Hamish is a particularly nice guy, quite down to earth and genuine....

Good to see Presets win a few, damn their songs have some real bite to them. This Boy's In Love

The Cat Empire are all levels of greatness. All their songs are as brilliant as 'Hello'.


Paul McDermott is a complete dick and I cannot stand him. Nothing valuable to add here, just wanted to say it.

The Chariot is probably one of their best songs ever.

I remember that song. It was pretty cool. All jazzy and stuff.

Good to see, but this is a great example of the state of Australian music in my opinion. They aren't that great, The Presets, but we don't have a lot of depth here musically and so they reap.

Paul is way not gay, and I think that isn't the first time you've asked me that. Yeah, that Arias was a mess. It was when Nat Imbruglia cleaned up for the first time, got like eight or something? More than Cimli at least, I think. But I think that was still back when Good News Week was on the ABC, so he wasn't particularly mainstream - it may have explained the bad reception.
You know, I do love watching Rove. Great way to chillax on Sunday night, with Hamish & Andy, Things We Love, Tom Petrovski at Commsec, and so on, but I can see where you're coming from. The humour isn't highlarious, it's pretty basic, it's jsut that the commedians are all popular and have their own thing. Peter Helliar is nowhere near as funny as everyone reckons, and neither is Ryan Shleton, who personally I think is about as funny as my doorknob.

Yes I know but people have kept saying he is, and I wasn't all there. Just want to get me facts right. I think he's just dandy.

Sometimes Hamish and Andy are pure gold, same with Pete, I think I like Pete more than those too, but Ryan Shelton, is very not funny.

Pete Hellier is just a dumbarse, with his bullshit Strauchanie character. Gee, how long did it take him to figure that up. A dumb Collingwood bogan who plays footy and is just crap.

He keeps bringing him up on the morning show on MMM. Such a wank, Myf is cool, but Hellier is just useless.

A huge variety of opinion in this thread!

Rove - I like but uses too much simple humour and gets cheap laughs
Hamish & Andy - Very much like because of the stunts etc that they do, I find them inventive and funny, Hamish (a la most people) more so than Andy
Dave Hughes - I know some don't like him but I reckon his 'rants' are hilarious sometimes
Ryan Shelton - Just not funny

I'm so glad that Gabriella Cilmi took away most of the awards, shes a gem!

The Presets where quite entertaining.

Why the bloody hell was pink playing? Why is she even in Australia??

Wow, I'm Australian and the Arias quite passed me by. Did Farnsey win anything this year? Damn.

Oh well. I'm gonna keep on rockin' till the broad daylight.

No doubt the Presets will be keeping it jiggy for their 'people' down at the HR Block office.

Hopefully next time Gabriella wins some awards someone has taught her the art of elocution.

^ at first I thought it was funny, but then after winning award after award. I was like "Oohhhhh Myyyy Goooooooodd!"

I also drove me insane because half the time I don't think she knew what the award was actually for, and she would just start thanking random people.

The Presets and Gabriella Cilmi deserved to win that many awards, Faker are alright but their lyrics are incredibly cheesy, The Veronicas are horrible imo every song they release as a single is worse and worse than the previous one. And screw Pink.

Faker are terrible. I was really hoping they weren't Australian. Get them outta here!

I was astonished at how cheesy their songwriting is, on par with Miley Cyrus' songs songwriting.

I think we can safely say "commercial" = "bland", if it's on commercial tv or radio, it's gonna be more crap than good

And seriously if Cilmi and Presets are the best that Aussie music has to offer Probably a reason I haven't bought any Aussie music lately and that the next CD I buy will be You Am I. Hey both Tim and I might be totally out of touch old farts, but he rocks, and can write an eloquent lyric
