    3. Samuel Johnson dedicated his Logie to his terminally ill sister Connie in a heartfelt speech.

    4. Everyone in Australia finally realised who Andy Grammer was when he sang his hit, "oh yeah, I know that song".

    Who doesn't love a bit of LIVE @andygrammer on a Sunday night?! #TVWeekLogies

    It was a real eventful night, guys.

    14. James Blunt performed a new song and people were shocked it wasn't "You're Beautiful (Remix)" although it kinda sounded like it tbh?

    18. Please Like Me won a Logie and Josh Thomas wasn't there so he Facetimed it.

    This happened more on Twitter than on the TV, but like, not much was happening on the TV at the time so here it is.

    21. Jessica Mauboy performed and managed the incredible feat of waking people up/getting their attention when they wanted the show to be over, like, 90 minutes ago.

    .@jessicamauboy definitely knows how to get an audience on their feet! 💃#TVWeekLogies

    22. Seriously, the show went way too long.

    Nine

    26. And a maybe, definitely, kinda very drunk Michael Gudinski summed up how we all felt that the show was finally over.
