Abbott Wants A.B. Original To Sing At Australia Day Awards

Former Prime Minister and current leader of the No campaign, Tony Abbott, has made another startling choice of artist to perform at a prestigious occasion.


Abbott has named hip hop duo A.B. Original as his first choice for the annual Australia Day awards held in Canberra every year.

A.B. Original is comprised of Briggs and Trials, two Indigenous Australians whose music is overtly political. Their first single was "January 26."

This morning Abbott questioned why an Australian wasn't chosen to perform at the NRL Grand Final. However, Abbott didn't seem to have a problem with The Killers performing at the AFL Grand Final.

Abbott also stated he was a fan of Aussie act Savage Garden, whose lead singer, Darren Hayes, is in a same-sex marriage.
