P!nk, Jessica Mauboy, Nesian Mystik, Katy Perry, T.I. feat. Rihanna, Fall Out Boy, The Ian Carey Project, Britney Spears and Sneaky Sound System triumphed at the Vodafone MTV Australia Awards 2009, winning one Moon-Man apiece.
The Awards kicked off with a spectacular live performance of Spaceman by The Killers and, putting rumours to rest, host Pete Wentz was joined by a surprise guest wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz. The newlyweds proved they were still very much in the ‘honey moon period’ up as they got hot and heavy live on stage - and the surprises didn’t stop there as guests were treated to an old school jam of Ice Ice Baby with iconic wordsmith Vanilla Ice (Rob Van Winkle) and Wentz.
All of the Awards live performances by artists including The Fray, Jessica Mauboy, Sia and Kaiser Chiefs took place against MTV Australia’s most spectacular set to date. Aussie rockers Wolfmother performed a world debut of their new song Backround before its free release on www.wolfmother.com and rock giants Kings Of Leon performed a cross by satellite to screaming fans from their sold out concert in Wellington, New Zealand.
Presenters at the Vodafone MTV Australia Awards 2009 included; Audrina Patridge, Delta Goodrem, Brian McFadden, Dannii Minogue, Lara Bingle, Mark Hoppus, Rhys Darby, Ashlee Simpson, Vanilla Ice (Rob Van Winkle) and Robbie Maddison.
