Minogue ‘honored’ by Glasgow show

Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue was “honored” to close the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow Sunday night.

The pop star performed for a crowd of 40,000 at the 20th annual event at Hempden Park while marking the transfer of the games to her native Australia.

And in a post on Twitter after the gig, Kyle admitted she was overwhelmed by the turnout.

“Wow!!! Thank you to #Glasgow2014 for an AMAZING night!!! It was an honor to be here with you!” she wrote, gushing in a later message: “Thank you Glasgow!!!!!”

UK newspaper The Mirror reports Kylie performed a “show-stopping set”, including Love at First Sight, All the Lovers, Beautiful and her 80s dance classic, The Locomotion.

It was an uplifting show for the 46-year-old singer, who admitted back in June she had been stressed by several false rumors, including one report in which she was accused of failing to pay her backing dancers.

“That [backing dancers claim] just really put a dampener on everything. It was frustrating and I would hope people know me well enough to know that’s just not how I operate,” she explained to Star Observer magazine. “I was kind of dragged into something but we remedied the situation and everyone was taken care of.

“I can’t lie, [coverage] happens and just recently I thought I’ve been down this road before and I’m affected by it. But you just really need to dig deep and part of being an artist is having securities… You just have to get back on the horse,” she insisted.

Kylie has meanwhile been enjoying the success of her new album Kiss Me Once.

The star collaborated with several well-known artists, including Pharrell Williams, who features on her track I Was Gonna Cancel.
