Billie Eilish and Sam Smith to Perform at 2020 ARIA Awards


Australian audiences can’t get enough of Eilish. Her debut When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? opened at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart and finished 2019 as the highest-selling album in Australia, earning double-platinum status and landing seven singles in the Top 5 of the ARIA chart.

One of those hits, “Bad Guy,” blasted to No. 1 on the ARIA Singles Chart and topped triple j’s 2019 Hottest 100 poll, making the Californian teen the youngest person and first female solo artist ever to achieve the feat. Eilish’s career streams top 1.27 billion in Australia, according to ARIA.

At the ARIAs, Eilish will deliver an exclusive performance of her new single “Therefore I Am” from her hometown, Los Angeles.

Smith can also boast superstar status in the Land Down Under, and a loaded trophy cabinet with four Grammys, three BRITs, an Oscar, and a Golden Globe Award.

Smith’s three full-length album releases have all peaked in the Top 3 on the ARIA chart, including a No. 1 for In The Lonely Hour from 2015.

At the annual ARIAs, the British singer will cross live from Abbey Road Studios in London for a special performance.

“Australia has always held such a special place in my heart, and I am so honored to be a part of this year’s ARIA Awards,” Smith says in a statement.

Heading into its 34th edition, the ARIA Awards will take place Nov. 25 at The Star Event Centre in Sydney, with Lime Cordiale (eight nominations), Tame Impala (seven) and Sampa (six) in the lead pack for silverware.

YouTube will stream performances online through an ongoing partnership, and free-to-air broadcaster Nine Network will beam the show across Australia.
