The 2012 ARIA Awards took over the Sydney Entertainment Centre yesterday, with the biggest names in Australian music gathering to honour their peers. It was a night that many thought would belong to Melbourne rapper 360, who had the most nominations with six, but it proved to be Gotye’s night for the second year in a row after he took home album of the year, best male artist and best pop release for his album Making Mirrors. His collaborator on "Somebody That I Used to Know," New Zealand-born Kimbra, won best female artist for the second year in a row, making the duo the first artists win the awards two consecutive years in a row.

The show was filled with plenty of memorable moments. Taylor Swift performed her new single "I Knew You Were Trouble" and also hit the stage a second time to present best male artist with Richard Wilkins. Russell Brand brought his mother on stage for some of his presenting duties, while Nicki Minaj brought lots of colour after rushing to the event from her perfume launch at Myer. 360 and Gossling took to the stage for "Boys Like You" and Lupe Fiasco joined Guy Sebastian for a rendition of their chart-topping, nominated hit "Battle Scars." One Direction won best international act and thanked fans via a video message, where they held up an Australian flag. But perhaps the most poignant part of the show was when stars including Jessica Mauboy, Peter Garrett, Dan Sultan, Paul Kelly and Andrew Farriss sang "Treaty" with Yothu Yindi, who were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
