  1. I think it would be great to have Jessica Mauboy hot the 2009 ARIAS it would do so much for the Aboriginal community not that she hasnt done enough already 🙂

    Good luck 🙂

  2. What are Hamish and Andy, and Dave Hughes nominated for?

    And is there any word on who is hosting? I liked Hamish and Andy hosting last year, but thats me being bias :p I think they’re the coolest entertainers in Australia, and should host everything :p

  3. Good to see Ladyhawke nominated. I hope they don’t find out that she is actually from New Zealand and won six Tuis at the New Zealand Music Awards the other day.
