Well, it seems as if the Australian VMA’s aren’t quite the draw for the American’s as the European VMA’s. When Sophie Monk and Kristin Cavallari represent the “talent” that appeared at the awards, it’s just kind of sad.
While local acts such as Silverchair, Guy Sebastian and Shannon Noll picked up awards, the night belonged to pop rebel Pink and emo rockers 30 Seconds To Mars.
The ceremony, famed for its exciting performances rather than prestigious awards, was kicked off by an acrobatic performance by the “Stupid Girls” singer, Pink, suspended in mid air and showing just how flexible she really is.
Australian artists Guy Sebastian and Shannon Noll – both former “Australian Idol” contestants – won best pop video and best male artist, respectively.
Silverchair, who have just achieved their fifth consecutive number one album, were awarded a hall of fame award called the Video Vanguard Award.
