5 Seconds of Summer scooped the ARIA for song of the year today.
Michael Clifford, Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin formed in Australia in 2011 and have gone on to become one of the biggest boybands in the world.
Today the ARIA Awards took place Down Under at The Event Centre at The Star Sydney and the group scored the prize for song of the year with their hit She Looks So Perfect.
