2022 ARIA Awards: Aisha Dee scored last-minute invite while sitting on a Sydney beach

How The Bold Type actress Aisha Dee scored a last-minute invite to the ARIA Awards while sitting on a Sydney beach with her mates

Aisha Dee almost spent her Thursday night sitting on a beach in Sydney, but managed to score a last-minute invite to the ARIA Awards instead.

The Bold Type actress, 29, rocked up to The Hordern Pavilion at the last minute, looking glam in a blue and silver silk ensemble. 

Speaking to 9Honey Celebrity on the red carpet, she said she was ‘at the beach’ just hours before when a ‘bunch of mates’ who invited her along.

‘I’m here last minute. I was at the beach earlier, but I got a bunch of mates here and I was like, “Yeah, I’ll come,”‘ she said.

It was the singer’s first time walking the red carpet at the ARIA Awards, but she said she’s had her mind set on one thing only.

‘I just keep hearing about fried chicken, which is somewhere and I’ve literally been looking for it. I feel like that’s what’s going to help me survive,’ the Saddle Club star said.

Despite Aisha’s excitement for her first experience at the music industry’s night of nights, frustrated viewers took to social media Thursday evening to vent their disappointment with the ceremony.

It was slammed for its ‘amateur production’ and labelled ‘absolute crap’, with many dismissing the event as a ‘fever dream’ that the late Kerry Packer – once owner of Channel Nine – would surely have pulled the plug on.

‘Not sure the producers of the #ARIAAwards will be getting more gigs anytime soon, what a mess,’ wrote one disgruntled viewer.

‘I swear this ARIAs is a fever dream. A lot of the hipsters have become too fashion ironic and imploded their identity….Plus, it feels really amateur,’ wrote another.

‘Not to complain but… the #arias broadcast still needs a lot of work – at least from a audience perspective. Not everybody is a natural-born presenter, either. Maybe less dad jokes and more music next time? Just a thought,’ commented another.

And the roasting continued, with many comments unpublishable, so was the fury of viewers.

To make matters worse, the biggest night in Australian music ended with a musical tribute to Olivia Newton-John, performed by Natalie Imburglia, Kye, Peking Duk and Tones & I, and fans didn’t like it one bit. 

‘Olivia Newton John deserved better than this,’ one fan wrote on Twitter, while another said: ‘What the f- was that! Olivia deserved better than that sh-.’

The 2022 ARIA Awards were hosted by Natalie Imbruglia alongside G Flip and Ruel who stepped in after Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi pulled out due to a scheduling conflict.
