5SOS were forced to pull out when Ashton was hospitalised with appendicitis.

The Vamps well and truly stole the show at yesterday’s Radio 1 Teen Awards and after 5 Seconds Of Summer were forced to pull out of the ceremony because Ashton Irwin was hospitalised due to appendicitis, this meant that even more eyes were on the boyband. However, how were The Vamps feeling about the 5SOS boys cancelling? We caught up with them to find out.

EntertainmentWise were down at the celeb-filled ceremony yesterday to find out all of the backstage gossip and when we bumped into Brad, Connor, Tristan and James, they were quick to send Ashton some London lovin’. Lead singer Brad told us: “It’s very sad to hear about Ashton, we heard earlier and hopefully he gets well soon. It would’ve been nice to see them, they’re a great band.”

The 20-year-old was discharged from the Australian medical facility on Friday, and took to social media to apologise to fans for being unable to fulfill performance commitments abroad. 

'I'm so sorry to anyone I've let down, I promise we will make it up to ya!' he earnestly Tweeted on Friday. 'I'll be better soon, thanks for all the love.'  

He underwent surgery for the appendicitis on Wednesday, leading to 5SOS cancelling a number of upcoming appearances. 

The She Looks So Perfect hit-makers announced the news on their website on Thursday. 

'Ashton has come down with a case of appendicitis and had to have an operation. He's doing great and will be back up & running in no time, but he'll need to rest up for the next week or so,' a statement read.

'Unfortunately this means that we'll no longer be able to fly back to the UK this weekend for the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards.

'We will also be postponing next week's trip to Japan (more info to come soon). We are so sorry to everyone that had planned on seeing us. We were so excited to come see you all and we never want to make any of you sad… We hope you understand!'

5 Seconds of Summer on Dealing With Haters: “There’s Definitely a Lot of Negative Stuff”

5 Seconds of Summer may be enjoying some pretty meteoric success, but that doesn’t mean that everyone’s on the 5SOS bandwagon. In fact, as you’d expect, there are plenty of haters, but the guys aren’t letting it get to them.

Luke Hemmings told Alt Press recently, “I don’t care when people don’t like our band, but I don’t like when they dislike us for reasons that aren’t right.”

He added, “Being inside of the bubble makes it a little tough to judge, but you can go on Twitter and see something and how people reply to it. There’s definitely a lot of negative stuff out there on the internet that I’ve seen, but I try not to look at it too much. Sometimes I go see why people like us or don’t like us.”

As for new music they have in the works, he says they’ve “written a few cool things,” but are looking forward to having time off to “just do nothing for a bit and then come back to writing.”

Like explained, “I think at the beginning of the year we’ll try to start writing some of the album. We want to get in a good spot so that when we go to do the album, it’s not all rushed at once. We’ll do it before the tour and in the gaps when we’re not touring.”

Teenage dream! ARIA awards to open with a performance by 5 Seconds of Summer

They’re up for a slew of ARIA Awards at the Australian music industry’s big night on November 26.

But win or lose, boy band 5 Seconds Of Summer will still set teenage girls’ hearts racing when they take to the stage to open the awards night.

The country’s answer to One Direction -Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin- are up for Best Group, Breakthrough Artist, Best Pop Album and Song Of The Year. 

Speaking toKyle and Jackie O on Tuesday, Ashton joked about the band’s chances and the cost of the ARIAS springing for so many awards, saying, ‘the thing I found out about awards is you have to pay for them sometimes! You can’t just be like, “Can we have four of those?” because they send you an invoice! It’s super- lame.’

Their self titled debut album hit number one in seven countries, including Oz, and reached the top spot on the US Billboard charts when it was released in June this year. 

The teenage heartthrobs are currently touring the world as the support act for One Direction.

Last month ARIA’s chief executive officer Dan Rosen hinted that there were plans to lock in some of the many Australian’s who’ve become international sensations for the big night.

'Not only have Australian artists seen increased success locally, but they are making their stamp globally and we look forward to celebrating these feats on the ARIA Stage with stellar live performances,' he said. 

The 28th Annual ARIA Awards will be held at Sydney’s The Star  where it will pay tribute to home-grown talent making it big on the world stage. 

5SOS will go up against Sia and Iggy Azalea for Song Of The Year and cross their fingers for Best Group, Breakthrough Artist, Best Pop Album gongs.

Fans can cast their vote for the Song Of The Year, Best International Artist, Best Australian Live Act and Best Video awards from this month.

The guys from 5 Seconds Of Summer are about to fuck shit up with their creepy “Good Girls” video. Filmed in an abandoned jail, the horror movie-themed extravaganza finds the band posing for mugshots while a group of girls are led into an extremely ominous looking juvenile detention center. You just know this won’t end well!

5SOS delivered a second, longer teaser today (watch up top) but it still doesn’t give away much. That’s ok because the full video drops tomorrow (October 10) and it promises to be the band’s most ambitious offering yet. The Aussie rockers are also releasing a Good Girls EP in November. It includes a live rendition of the song and an acoustic version of “Long Way Home”.
