The Australian music industry (and a few high-profile internationals) descended upon Sydney’s Star Event Centre for the Aussie music scene’s night of nights yesterday.
But while the evening’s biggest winners were Amy Shark and Gurrumul, who each received a massive four awards each, there are a few Twitter users who deserve their own accolades.
To give them the justice they truly deserve, check out a few of our favourite #ARIAs tweets from SOUNDS AUSTRALIA’S Dom Alessio, Twitter’s Jennie Sager, Junkee‘s Jules LeFevre, and more.

Kasey Chambers gave a ripper performance, to mark her Hall of Fame induction, and it ended with a poem (yes, a poem) by Paul Kelly. And it was pretty brill #arias
