A Kylie Post: Australia Edition



KYLIE Minogue went back to her roots at a club show in Melbourne.

Minogue and band played a one-hour set at Toorak’s Trak Lounge on Saturday night ahead of her performance at Sunday night’s Logies.

A total 800 Fans won tickets via I Heart Radio.

She sung hits Can’t Get You Out of My Head, Wow, Love at First Sight and recent singles Into the Blue, Beautiful and I Was Gonna Cancel - the latter which she will perform at the Logies.

Last Thursday, Minogue filmed the video for I Was Gonna Cancel at a Docklands set.

It is the first video she has filmed in her hometown since Better the Devil You Know in 1990.

The new video drew controversy when Sydney director Dimitri Basil put a call out to his industry contacts to be extras in the clip.

A misunderstanding flared that dancers would be working for free.

Minogue clarified all the dancers were paid.

She tweeted: “All video cast had a blast and yes OF COURSE all were paid, contrary to reports.”

Basil, who usually makes low-budget indie videos, also was at pains to point out everyone was paid.

“It was a call out to my friends to be a part of a particular crowd scene in the video. I certainly didn’t mean to offend the dance community,” he said.

The last time Minogue, 45, played a small club in Melbourne was at the defunct Mercury Lounge for her 30th birthday.

Meanwhile, British singer Ed Sheeran - who is also performing at the Logies - was spotted at Trak.


Kylie Minogue is back in Australia as a coach on The Voice, but that's not the only reason. She's homesick!

Talking to TV Week, the 45-year-old revealed that her grandma's death late last year triggered her decision to spend more time back home.

"Unfortunately, I wasn't there and it was obviously difficult and emotional," she told the magazine. "I wish I could have been here for my parents.

"That was the reason I took my handbag onstage, the first person in The Voice history to go on stage carrying a handbag! My nana would never go anywhere without her handbag. It was the 'nana clutch'.

"My life is has been based at the other end of the world for a long time now. I am hoping this is one positive step in being able to spend more time in Australia and being closer to them."


The countdown has begun for one of Australia's favourite reality television shows.

In just ten days The Voice will be returning to the small screen with the first episode due to air 6.30pm Sunday, 4 May, announced Today this morning.

Anticipation for the forthcoming series continues to gain momentum as Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue and the Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am are set to make their debut appearance on the judging table.

Joining Joel Madden and Ricki Martin, the international singers will round out the all-star cast for the third season of the hit series.
