ARIA Awards 2014: Sia Wins Big, One Direction and 5SOS Are Among Performs

Other winners at the awards event held at the Star Event Centre in Sydney, Australia include Iggy Azalea, Keith Urban, One Direction and 5 Seconds of Summer.

AceShowbiz - %cSia Furler% was the biggest winner at the 2014 ARIA Awards which was held on Wednesday, November 26. She took home four awards which included Best Female Artist and Album of the Year for "1000 Forms of Fear". Her hit single "Chandelier" additionally won the Best Video and Best Pop Release titles.

Sia, unfortunately, was in the U.S. and couldn't make it to the ceremony at the Star Event Centre in Sydney to collect her trophies. The Adelaide-raised singer/songwriter then took to Twitter to apologize for being a "no show."

"I made four thank you/acceptance videos for the arias. They chose to show one. I'm saddened to be getting s**t for being a 'no-show,' " she wrote before offering one of her awards to one lucky fan, adding, "On the upside, I won! Who wants one? First four people to document doing a good deed, I'll send you an aria. GO!!!"

Trailing behind Sia with two ARIAs is Nicholas Murphy a.k.a. %cChet Faker%. The 26-year-old musician was the winner in Best Male Artist and Best Independent Release categories. The latter was for the chart-topping "Built on Glass" album which he produced himself.

Other notable winners at the event included %cIggy Azalea% (Breakthrough Artist), %cKeith Urban% (Best Live Australian Act), %cOne Direction% (Best International Act) and %c5 Seconds of Summer% (Song of the Year for "She Looks So Perfect").

The latter two acts also served as the performers for the Wednesday ARIAs. Numerous ladies in the crowd went wild as %cHarry Styles% and Co. sang "Steal My Girl" from their newest album "FOUR". Previously, 5SOS helped kick off the festivities with a live rendition of "She Looks So Perfect".
