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.
