Rocker Joel Madden sealed his status as an Australian Tv star by scooping a top prize at the prestigious Logie Awards Down Under on Sunday (07Apr13).
The Good Charlotte star was voted Most Popular New Male Talent for his judging role on the Aussie version of Tv singing show The Voice, while the hit contest was also named Best Light Entertainment Program at the ceremony in Melbourne.
Accepting his trophy, Madden thanked fellow panellists Seal, Delta Goodrem, Keith Urban and Ricky Martin, adding, "The Voice is a show that I believe in. I'm happy to be a part of exposing Australian singers and Australian songwriters to the world - I love Australian music. I just want to thank Australia for being so good to me."
He later tweeted, "Thanks for the Logie Australia. I owe you for this one. Everybody who voted I really am humbled. Thanks for this, it means a lot to me."
The evening's other big winner was Offspring star Asher Keddie, who landed the coveted Gold Logie as well as her third consecutive Silver Logie for most popular actress, while singers Michael Buble and Bruno Mars performed onstage.
