Falls and flamin' performances at the AMAs JLo took a tumble on stage, former American Idol Adam Lambert performed simulated oral sex in his performance and Lady Gaga busted out an eye-popping costume with an alien-inspired headdress.

Just the usual night of nights at the 2009 American Music Awards.

Picture gallery: ARIA winners — where are they now? The ARIA Award. It's the pointy statue that all the musos in Australia are singing their lungs out to get.

But what happens once you have one sitting on your mantelpiece? Is an ARIA Award a one-way ticket to fame and glory — or is it just a useless paperweight (albeit one that would make a really novel murder weapon)?

Some ARIA Award winners have soared, achieving chart success here and around the world. But others haven't been so lucky — the spotlight has moved on, leaving them with nothing but memories and stories for their grandchild.

Read for the full post for MusicFIX's look back at some of the more memorable hits and misses of the ARIA Awards.

Video: Guy Sebastian and Jordin Sparks learn the 'Art of Love' If I was Guy Sebastian's wife, I don't think I'd like to see him getting cosy with another woman — especially if that woman was Jordin Sparks!

Fortunately for Mrs Sebastian, pop powerhouses Guy and Jordin have only paired up for 'Art of Love'. He won Australian Idol and she won American Idol, so I guess that makes this a world-class duet!

You might have seen Guy perform 'Art' at the 2009 Idol finale — he sang it solo, since poor Jordin was stricken with appendicitis and couldn't make it to Australia — and now you can see the video in its entirety in the full post.

Australian Idol: 2009 grand finale It's that time of year again: another Australian Idol finale at the Sydney Opera House. And thank effing god. We don't have to watch this gas-bag of a show... until it returns to the airwaves in 2010. Oh. Goody.

The very last episode (yay!) begins with a choir comprised of people I've never seen before and therefore don't care about. They're surrounding by screaming attendees, who I feel sorry for for two reasons. First, way to waste an evening. Second, it's BLOODY HOT in Sydney right now. I hope they're all wearing deodorant.

The choir leads into the top 12's performance of 'Don't Stop Me Now', a tune that makes me think of Shaun of the Dead. Too bad there's no ravenous zombie hoards present. Aww, look, there's Casey. And Sabrina and her over-trained voice. And Dreamy Tim and Pretty Kim. And Kate! It's Scott and his currant eyes, and quitter Toby, and chubby Nathan. And James, my favourite!

The final two, Stan and Hayley, emerge to finish off the song. I hafta admit: judged on voice alone, Stan deserves to win. Chatting to Andrew G after the performance, he declares the finale is "sew wucked". Gotta love Kiwi accents. Or not.

Music Review: Foo Fighters & Robbie Williams Robbie's appeal lies in the chorus. Rock DJ, Let Me Entertain You, Angels - a verse is just a means to a middle for Mr. Williams. His last album lost the chorus and truckloads of fans along the way.

Video: Ministry of Sound's raunchy new tune Aah, another Ministry of Sound song, another raunchy video clip.

Titled 'aNYway', the track is by Ducksauce and appears to be influenced by the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore classic Ghost — if Ghost was, like, 100 times sexier. (I don't recall Patrick slipping his hand inside Demi's bra in the movie. Or the two of them crafting a huge penis-shaped thing out of clay. Hmmm...)

Check out the clip in the full post.
