Without doubt most eyes were on Kylie who has always held a special place in the heart of the UK, which has been pretty much her adopted home for the last 20 years. Going right back to her time as Charlene in Australian soap Neighbours she has had a strong fanbase. Through the years she has emerged as sexy Kylie after her time with INXS singer Michael Hutchence and this image was enhanced by her ‘Spinning Around” video which made her bottom famous in its own right after it was showcased in a pair of tiny gold shorts.
After a huge hit with 2001’s “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”, which sold over 5m copies and was a Number 1 hit in more than 40 different countries, she had successful tours, plenty more record sales and also did rather well on sales of calendars and other merchandise. The UK then went through her battle with breast cancer with her and as could be seen tonight she looks incredible for her age.
