A surprise musical act will also be revealed on the night.
Amy Shark and Peking Duk will lead the celebrations for the 2023 Logie Awards this Sunday (30 July), with the latter billed to perform as the night's closing act.
The I Said Hi singer and I Want You electronic music duo aren’t the only musical performers scheduled to take the stage – according to Channel 7’s Executive Producer, Digby Mitchell, surprising performers will be revealed on the night.
An unnamed performer will feature for the In Memoriam segment, while 7 have another surprise up their sleeves with a “fitting” individual poised to present the sought-after Gold Logie.
Mitchell said about the musical acts performing at this weekend’s Logie Awards, per TV Tonight: “We wanted an act that was going to get the room on their feet and give an injection of excitement towards the end of the show.”
In addition to her performance at the Logie Awards, Amy Shark has also been nominated for the titular award under the competitive Most Popular New Talent award, earning the nod for her work as a judge on the recent reboot of Australian Idol.
She’s in the category alongside Netflix, Nine Network and Stan stars Ayesha Madon and Chloe Hayden (Heartbreak High), Love Island Australia’s Flex Mami, RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under’s Kween Kong, and Surviving Summer’s Lilliana Bowrey.

In February, Peking Duk reimagined the Savage Garden classic, I Want You and subsequently moved up the radio and ARIA Singles Charts. Recruiting OG singer Darren Hayes, the duo’s latest hit, will likely feature in their set on Sunday night.
“They released that song 25 years ago, we remixed it and then got all the parts replayed, including Darren himself came and joined us in the studio in Santa Monica and resung every part, and it was the funnest studio session of all time,” Peking Duk’s Reuben Styles said in a statement.
Adam Hyde called the collaboration an “honour” as the group “grew up on Savage Garden.”
