New Zealand's Lorde and America's Alicia Keys were the highlight performers during the 27th Annual ARIA Awards held at The Star Casino & Hotel in Sydney, Australia on December 1. ARIA is the short name of "Australian Recording Industry Association". These awards recognize the best artists and song releases in the Australian music scene of the last year. The 2013 ARIA Awards telecast was aired by Go! Network.
Lorde - looking good with her new straight hair do (although that outfit and boots didn't look too good in the eye) - performed a stunning rendition of her new global single "Team", from her debut album "Pure Heroine". It was haunting performance! Also taking the ARIA Awards 2013 stage was Alicia Keys. The fourteen-time Grammy award-winning R&B diva performed "Girl On Fire" and "Brand New Me". Excellent from the very first to the last note.
