It feels so good to be performing live again: Amy Shark in Nova's Red Room

Saturday 21 November, 2020

Nova’s Red Room ARIA Edition Presented by Mitsubishi Motors kicked off last night with Amy Shark and Ruel taking to the stage in the lead up to the 2020 ARIA Awards.

Hosted by Nova’s Matt de Groot and Sarah McGilvray, the event saw the homegrown duo perform live for 120 fans in an intimate show at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion.
The Red Room sees some of the hottest 2020 ARIA nominees perform for live audiences, helping to reignite the live music scene and provide a platform for artists to continue to do what they love.
At 18 years old, trailblazer Ruel continues to exceed the omnipresent hype that surrounds him and is up for four ARIA awards this year. On stage, Ruel said: “A huge thanks to Nova and ARIA, this helps my mental cause I’ve been missing this so much. It feels so good to be performing live again.” In an emotive and passionate performance, he whipped superfans into a frenzy with his hits ‘As Long As You Care’, ‘Hard Sometimes’, ‘Younger’ and ‘Painkiller’ which is nominated for Song Of The Year at this year’s ARIA Awards.
Following up from Ruel was Amy Shark who delighted fans with an intimate acoustic performance. Onstage Amy said: “It’s so amazing to have a gig! I don’t mean to brag, but it’s not my first Red Room so I thought ‘what can I do to make it more special’ so it’s just you and me and my guitar. It’s just us tonight.”

One the counties most talented and successful singer songwriters, Amy is nominated for multiple ARIA awards this year including: Best Female Artist, Best Pop Release and Best Live Australian Act. Fans were treated to acoustic versions of Amy’s hits ‘Adore You’, ‘Mess Her Up’, ‘Everybody Rise’ and ‘I Said Hi’.
2020 has been a challenging time for the music industry with the Red Room series going online in April 2020. Nova’s Red Room Live Stream continued to connect artists and their fans during Covid with performances from Conan Gray, YUNGBLUD, Dua Lipa, Kita Alexander, BENEE, James Bay, The Vamps and Illy.

Following on from Wednesday night, Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy wrapped up the Nova’s Red Room ARIA Week Celebrations.
Guy is nominated for two ARIA Awards this year including Best Male Artist and Best Video for his hit Standing By You from his newest album T.R.U.T.H. Guy brought his high energy and fun, upbeat signature style to the stage with hits ‘Battlescars’, ‘Let Me Drink’ and ‘Before I Go’ along with a moving acoustic rendition of James Arthurs ‘Lasting Lover’.
Jessica is nominated for Album of the Year for her EP Hilda at this year’s ARIA Awards performing hits ‘Little Things’ and ‘Sunday’ amongst others for fans.
