“Scar” won the Award for “Best Pop Release” at last night’s ARIA’s in Sydney. The song beat a heavyweight field that included fellow nominees Pete Murray, Kylie Minogue, The Dissociatives and Delta Goodrem.

The achievement was made all the more extraordinary by the fact that ARIA Award voting happened shortly after “Scar” was released and closed before “The Sound Of White” came out. Missy is therefore ineligible in any of the album categories until next year.

Missy performed a stripped back version of “Scar” with Josh Cunningham on this year’s show. She thanked her cat and dog (among others) in her acceptance speech. She also thanked all the people who liked her music for making the last few months such an amazing journey for her.
