POP sensation Duffy, right, has graced the red carpet at the MTV Australia Awards, continuing the Welsh singer’s quest for global chart domination.
Wearing a black dress with a plunging neckline, the 24-year-old Nefyn-born star presented an award alongside X Factor judge Dannii Minogue.
Other big names from the world of music at the star-studded ceremony included indie group the Kaiser Chiefs, rockers The Killers, as well as pop star Delta Goodrem and her fiancé, ex-Westlife member Brian McFadden.
The Mercy singer, whose real name is Aimee Ann Duffy, is riding high in the Australian music charts with her debut album Rockferry. It is currently at number eight having already gone platinum and spending 35 weeks in their charts.
She also recently played to a sell-out audience at Sydney’s Opera House.
But in a recent interview with an Australian newspaper, Duffy said the first time she had performed in Australia it had been a slightly different story.
The Grammy-winning singer said she and her sisters had jumped on the bar at Sydney’s Hilton Hotel and started singing along with the house band.
She joked: “It was so much fun but, of course, now I know the rule about that. Don’t rain on someone else’s parade.”
