"I feel bad if I don't make a point of mentioning something that I feel a little weird about. I don't think there was any women nominated at all in the comedy category just then. And I don't think there are any women who are featured artists on tonight's show even. I mean there's Tina Arena obviously, but other than that, there's a couple of featured guests, but it's like, there's no one. I'd feel stupid if I didn't use this opportunity to say something about that."

The speech didn't air on TV.


14. Then Ed Sheeran told us that he went to a James Blunt gig when he was 14.

Ed: "I went to one of James' gigs when I was 14 back in Cambridge Junction and I stole one of his bottles of Corona. There were 20 people in the crowd... and then he went on to sell 20 million records."

James: "That's where you got herpes from, mate."

Ed: "It still itches."
