The water. We need to talk about the water.

The year was 2000. Australian band Madison Avenue were performing a medley at the annual Aria awards.

Anyway, now we've cleared that up, back to their Arias performance...

All was going to plan. Lead singer Cheyne was dancing up a storm and the '00s crowd were LOVING IT.

However halfway through the performance, Cheyne seemed to be getting a little thirsty...

...literally thirsty it would seem, not the thirst today's teens feel for Malcolm "Daddy" Turnbull.

Thankfully the trumpet player was on hand to give Cheyne a much needed glass of water.

Sadly however, the water went straight onto the ground, as duty called and she had to continue on with dat medley.

The problem? THE WATER THEN JUST STAYED THERE IN FOCAL VIEW FOR THE REST OF THE PERFORMANCE.

Cheyne's thirst was SO real, but an unnatural force was keeping her and her beloved water apart.

Every time she got ventured closer, it was just never meant to be...

....at one stage, she even managed to PICK IT UP, and STILL, she couldn't take that yearning sip.

It's basically the saddest love story to ever exist. 😥

However, props to Cheyne (and the true star of the performance, the glass of water), because they still finished the performance like pros.
