The Logies, the most anticipated event on the Australian television calendar, is back on Channel 9 on Sunday, after a two-year hiatus.
Broadcast LIVE from 7.00pm on Queensland’s Gold Coast, the 62nd TV WEEK Logie Awards will once again bring Australia’s biggest TV stars together for an epic night of celebration, glitz and glamour.
Leila McKinnon, David Campbell and Renee Bargh get things started on the red carpet, giving viewers front-row access to the very best (and worst) frocks and fashion, as the stars arrive at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre within The Star Gold Coast Entertainment Precinct – a brand new location.
From 7.30pm, the official TV WEEK Logie Awards begin, with 25 Logies to be awarded, including the new Silver Logie for Most Popular Australian Actor or Actress in an International Program. From this year, the Most Popular Presenter Logie will be known as the Bert Newton Award for Most Popular Presenter, recognising the late Bert Newton as Australia’s ultimate TV presenter.
One of Australia’s most well-known comedians, Tony Martin also returns as the voice of the Logies, and popular TV personalities across all networks will form a stellar lineup of presenters, including:
Mel B, Hamish & Andy, Melissa Leong, Karl Stefanovic, Julia Morris, Tom Gleeson, Amanda Keller, Dr Chris Brown, Dave Hughes, Osher Gunsberg, Leigh Sales, Ada Nicodemou, Waleed Aly, Tony Armstrong, Jeremy Fernandez, Emma Watkins, Tim Minchin, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Dylan Alcott, Claudia Karvan, Leah Purcell, Chrissie Swan, Lincoln Younes, Allison Langdon, Christie Whelan-Browne, Sophie Monk, Rodger Corser, Kumi Taguchi, Sarah Abo, Patti Newton, Rove McManus, David Speers, Eddie Perfect, Richard Wilkins, Daniel MacPherson and Larry Emdur.
The nation’s biggest party commands some special international and Australian artists, who will join forces for a live performance extravaganza.
Multi-platinum-award singer Calum Scott will captivate audiences with his dazzling voice, performing new songs from his upcoming album, Bridges.
The heart and soul of Australian rock ’n’ roll, Jimmy Barnes, will be joined by his 12-piece band and a very special guest to mark 30 years since the release of his 10-times platinum album, Soul Deep.
Taking things up a gear will be one of Australia’s most successful artists, Jess Mauboy, hitting the high notes with her classics and the first TV performance of her new single, Automatic.
The party extends outside of the ballroom at the new TV WEEK Logies Live Site, where fans can mingle with the stars of Married at First Sight, Travel Guides and The Block, and enjoy live performances from The Rogue Traders, Lachie Gill, Gaudion and Sofia Isella and Lionette.
