THE cat might have been let out of the bag a bit early, but that didn't take the shine off Hamish Blake's Gold Logie.

The news got out online a bit early online about the radio and TV personality's big win, not that it was much of a surprise with Blake being the odds favourite to take out the golden statuette.

"If you hold it up to your ear you can hear Bert (Newton). It's like a seashell," he joked.

"I know there's a lot of people at mum's house watching this; she's there as well."

The Gap Year co-host beat out some stiff competition including last year's Gold Logie winner Karl Stefanovic and Silver Logie winners Asher Keddie and Adam Hills.

But Australian TV's night of nights was nearly overshadowed by One Direction, the British boy band currently taking the world by storm.

It was the loudest, wildest start to the Logies in recent memory thanks to the five lads, who greeted screaming fans on the red carpet with a live performance of their hit What Makes You Beautiful.

Opening presenter Adam Hills wasted no time kicking things off, literally, when he ripped his left leg out from his pants in a tribute to Angelina Jolie's much talked about Oscars stance.

Hills appeared to be channelling Ricky Gervais with his jokes, taking aim at everyone from Sonia Kruger to The Wiggles to reality TV.

The funny man took home his first Silver Logie for Most Popular Presenter for musical quiz show Spicks and Specks and his chat show Adam Hills in Gordon St Tonight.

It was a night of firsts for some and continuing success for others.

Packed to the Rafters star Hugh Sheridan took home his third Silver Logie in a row, which he dedicated to the Port Adelaide Football Club, and Better Homes and Gardens won its 10th statuette.

Asher Keddie won her second Silver Logie in a row for her performances in Offspring and Paper Giants: The Birth of Cleo.

The Bondi Rescue lifeguards took home their fourth Logie for Most Popular Factual Program, continuing their domination of the category.

And just a day before the new series debuts, The Block took home its first Logie for Most Popular Reality Program.

Blake and his partner in crime Andy Lee won their first-ever Logie for their "working holiday" Hamish & Andy's Gap Year and Underbelly: Razor star Chelsie Preston Crayford who won the Graham Kennedy Award for Most Outstanding New Talent.

TV newcomer Melissa Bergland, of Winners & Losers, had the enviable honour, if you're a teenage girl anyway, of having her Logie Award given to her by One Direction.

There were also musical performances by Flo Rida, Tony Bennett and The Voice Australia's Seal and Delta Goodrem.

Music journalist Molly Meldrum was also honoured with an induction into the TV Week Logies Hall of Fame.
One Direction closed the show with their hit One Thing.
