Australian sensation Troye Sivan stole the show at the 2023 Australian Recording Industry Association(ARIA) Awards, claiming four victories for his hit track “Rush”.
Having recently secured two Grammy nominations for Best Pop Dance Recording and Best Music Video, Sivan returned to Sydney for the ARIAs, gracing the red carpet and taking the stage to present the YouTube ARIA Award for Best Video.
Kylie Minogue, who wasn’t in attendance, won an ARIA for Best Pop Release for Padam Padam, while missing out on other awards due to being in a number of similar categories as Sivan. This is Kylie’s first ARIA in 20 years.
Sivan, hailed as “the perfect popstar” by TIME magazine, has capped off an exceptional year with six ARIA Awards now under his belt. His chart-topping single “Rush” catapulted him to international acclaim, and the ARIA wins further solidified his position as an icon in the music industry.
“I swear I’m not bragging, but Kylie Minogue and I are nominated in the same category in the Grammys, and I’m just so proud,” Sivan said after accepting the Song of the Year ARIA.
The recognition is not just a testament to his talent but also marks a significant moment for Australian music on the global stage. The awards ceremony served as a platform for celebrating both local and international achievements in the music industry.
Troye Sivan’s triumphs at the ARIAs underscore the power and influence of Australian artists in the global entertainment landscape, reinforcing the country’s rich contribution to the world of music.
Genesis Owusu took home three ARIA Awards with Album of the Year, Best Hip Hop/Rap Release, and Best Independent Release for his highly anticipated and critically acclaimed album STRUGGLER.
G Flip once again cemented themselves as one of Australia’s most loved artists, smashing out an epic performance of hit songs Good Enough and The Worst Person Alive, in addition to taking home two ARIA Awards for Best Australian Live Act and Best Video (Kyle Caulfield).
