He’s the man responsible for one of the most popular songs of all time, and now British superstar James Blunt is heading our way to perform at the 59th TV WEEK LOGIE AWARDS in Melbourne on April 23, 2017.

In a career spanning 13 years, James has cemented his status as a prolific performer.

In 2004, he released “You’re Beautiful”, a track that quickly became a part of modern music history. Since then, he’s sold more than 20 million albums worldwide, notched up nearly 700 million streams online and been viewed more than 625 million times on YouTube.

This Friday marks the release of James’s fifth studio album, The Afterlove, a record that sees him collaborate with friend and fellow troubadour Ed Sheeran.

“You can hear where Ed has really pushed my buttons, saying, ‘C’mon, you can’t hint at something, you’ve actually got to say it,’” James says. “It was refreshing to see someone confident [enough] to say, ‘Let’s do something that makes you feel uncomfortable.’”

With his buttons firmly pushed, James is now preparing to debut his brand-new sound, live on stage at the 59th TV WEEK LOGIE AWARDS. “I really can’t wait,” James says. James’s star power will lend an air of excitement to an already monumental evening as the best and brightest stars on the box gather in Melbourne for TV’s night of nights.

“Let’s be ‘Blunt’, James is a bona-fide superstar and we’re so excited to have him perform at the TV WEEK Logie Awards,” TV WEEK Editor Emma Nolan says.

“We all know his greatest hits, but fans are falling in love again in 2017.” James is no stranger to Australia, having appeared on The X Factor in 2015 as a judge. It’s clear the 43-year-old is keen to get back on stage and impress his fans down under.

“I can’t speak more highly of my experiences in Australia,” James says. “I lived there for a short while for The X Factor and toured there extensively. “Aussies are, for me, some of the most fun people to hang out with.”

The 59th TV WEEK Logie Awards will take place on Sunday, April 23, 2017, at Crown Entertainment Complex’s Palladium Room in Melbourne. The event will be telecast on the Nine Network.
