The guys thanked their fans for their votes by making a huge announcement.
The Twitter vote and fan commentary throughout the night helped the #ARIAs main show and red carpet top the @NielsenSocialAU ratings with over 3 million impressions, making the #ARIAs Australia’s biggest televised award show on Twitter this year.
Here’s a look at how #ARIAs conversation on Twitter lit up around the world:
Twitter was front and centre throughout the broadcast, from on-air Tweets from fans congratulating their favourite artists to a cheeky invitation from @oshergunsberg to viewers to slide into his Direct Messages where he’d reveal @5SOS’s big secret (but only if they used the hashtag #ARIAs!).
It was a long, hot day for everyone with temperatures soaring in Sydney. The coolest thing on the red carpet was Twitter’s host @AlliSimpson who kicked off the day with exclusive interviews with the biggest #ARIAs’ stars.
