    Firework has got to be her Worst song. Its So bad. Crap choice. She’s not even that good to begin with.

    Can the Logies get Erasure to sing ‘Always’

    I think people may want her to perform the song that got her known in Australia: Hot n’ Cold: i.e. the MasterChef theme.

    Well hopefully the audio is good and not sounding distant and hollow.

    So the Logies get all these great international acts to appear. And the ARIA’s got an Emmy winning television star to appear. Uh huh. Just scrap the Logies and ARIA’s and give both industry’s a credible and more prestigious awards

    Her husband should be at the Logies, not her…bring Russell back to Melbourne! so disapointed he didn’t come here to promo Arthur :(

    Just goes to show how insignificant Australian recording artists are at the moment!

    They should have asked Altiyan Childs.

    Here’s the thing, if the Fireworks were aimed… say at the crowd, I’d watch. Until then I’ll probably give this a miss even though Katy Perry’s really hot (Despite her choice of partners.)

    When I was a kid I used to look forward to watching overseas stars on television. It was such a novelty to see them and I remember looking forward to hey hey or whatever show had performances on. The Logie organisers are aware that in I wanted to see kate perry i could just watc you tube arent they?
