Friday night was a huge night for Jessica Mauboy! Jessica not only blew away the audience with a spectacular performance at the Vodafone MTV Australia Awards, but Jessica also walked away with the award for ‘Best Aussie’ – beating a field of competitors which included The Veronicas and The Presets!
Jessica took to the stage at the MTV Australia Awards alongside a line up of international stars for a dramatic performance of her hits ‘Running Back’ and ‘Been Waiting’. Jessica then followed up her sizzling performance by winning the award for ‘Best Aussie’!
On winning her award Jessica said “I am so excited about winning the MTV Award for ‘Best Aussie’! Being a young girl from Darwin it feels like all my dreams are coming true! I especially want to thank all my fans for their support – I couldn’t have done it without them!”
Jessica walked the red carpet at the MTV Australia Awards at Darling Harbour on Friday night in a stunning outfit by Collette Dinnigan and jewellery by Canturi, before changing into a custom made creation by Australian designer Bowie for her live performance.
The good news keeps coming for Jessica whose debut album BEEN WAITING will be released in Japan and the UK this year.
Now featuring three massive hits (Running Back, Burn and Been Waiting), BEEN WAITING will be released in Japan on April 22nd. ‘Running Back’ has already been a #2 ringtone on Japan’s biggest ringtone provider ‘Rekochoku’.
BEEN WAITING will also be released in the UK later this year on the Ministry of Sound label, with the first single being ‘Burn’, which has been a #1 hit in Australia.
With a debut album featuring three hit singles and more to come, 2009 is shaping up to be the biggest year yet for Jessica Mauboy!
