Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s duet, “Shallow,” from their 2018 remake of A Star Is Born, was previously announced as the Most Performed International Work. And Sia’s “Cheap Thrill’s was named Most Performed Australian Work Overseas for the third straight year.

Australian singer/songwriter Tones and I took home the awards for Song of the Year and Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year for her breakout hit, “Dance Monkey.”

The APRAs were originally set to be handed out on April 28, but was replaced with an hour-long “virtual” event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
