Are they allowed to say that?!

For anyone watching the ARIAs on Wednesday night you might have been surprised to hear a few rogue F-bombs dropped by Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers and Dean Lewis that were left uncensored – despite the fact the show is filmed in advance.

Jimmy accepted the ARIA for best soundtrack for documentary Working Class Boy and said:

“I would like to thank John Watson my manager, my beautiful wife, my darling kids and my siblings, John, Dot, Linda, Alan and Lisa who lived through the f**king life with me."

Kasey soon took to the stage and dropped an uncensored F-bomb while being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame:

“I still have days where I look in the mirror and I go, am I not pretty enough?”

“But my answer now is, who gives a f**k, you know. I don’t really care.”

Nine also didn't alter the F-bomb in Lewis' 'Be Alright'.

Many viewers took to Twitter, wondering if it was allowed to drop an F-bomb before 8:30pm on TV

Bob Geldof managed to get in a fourth swear word while getting introduced by Keith Urban, but that was closer to 10pm and possibly more appropriate?

Looks like Nine is way more edgy than we thought!

Keith Urban stopped by Nova’s Red Room ahead of hosting the ARIAs and he had us mesmerised. Listen to his glorious voice in ‘Coming Home’
