This should hopefully offset last year’s belated finish at 12:30am.
Sonia Kruger and Jules Lund will host the Red Carpet before the ceremony begins at 8pm. First presenters have also been announced.
The timeslot suggests The Voice may not air on Logies night, but possibly the night after, with When Love Comes to Town a possible contender for 6:30pm. Nine is likely keeping its cards close to its chest until Seven declares the finale for My Kitchen Rules.
If The Voice is a non-starter for April 27, that will be music to TEN’s ears for the Modern Family: Australia episode.
In this programming chess-game, it’s a fascinating time….
Australia’s darling of music and television, Kylie Minogue, makes her return to the Logie stage. The Gold Logie winner and new Coach on The Voice will treat viewers to a world premiere performance of the latest single from her recently released album, Kiss Me Once.
International superstar and one of today’s most popular singer/songwriters, Ed Sheeran, will premiere his new single Sing, while rising British star John Newman will perform his worldwide smash hit, Love Me Again.
Energetic duo MKTO will bring a thrilling rendition of their single Thank You to the stage, and US R’n’B star Jason Derulo will showcase a one-off performance he has put together especially for the night.
A dazzling collection of TV stars will take to the stage in Crown’s Palladium Ballroom to award the Logie winners. The presenters include Hamish Blake & Andy Lee, Julia Morris, Lincoln Lewis, Dave Hughes, Noni Hazlehurst, Lisa Wilkinson, Craig McLachlan, Luke Jacobz, Darren McMullen, Shane Jacobson, Jessica Marais, Samantha Armatage, Gyton Grantley, Tina Arena, Emma Alberici, Jennifer Hawkins, Patrick Brammall, Amanda Kellar, Eddie McGuire and Richard Wilkins.
The ceremony will also include the announcement of this year’s inductee into the TV Week Hall of Fame and the crowning of Australia’s most popular television personality with the coveted TV Week Gold Logie Award.
