“We just flew on in,” she said before revealing to Will that she’d been in London for a couple of days but that her upcoming Capital Summertime Ball shock performance had been on her mind!

She said that she had 'no idea' a week ago that she would be performing to 80,000 people at Wembley Stadium, she said: “To be able to do ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ after, I had the best time. Thanks to everyone."

‘Padam Padam’ was an instant hit and quickly climbed the charts, for the third week in a row Kylie has scored Number 1 on the Sky VIP Official Big Top 40 from Global – which is no surprise as everyone's deeming the track the song of the summer.

Kylie shared a video on Instagram thanking fans as she accepted her top spot trophy, she said: “This is amazing, thank you so much I can’t believe I am holding this and what an incredible, another wild turn in my life, in my career.”

The anticipation for her upcoming album ‘Tension’ has hit a fever pitch as everybody wants to know what else they can expect from the diverse artist; her sixteenth (yes, sixteenth) record drops on September 22.

Kylie, of course, is no stranger to this kind of success, having sold over 80 million records worldwide, she’s the highest-selling female Australian artist ever!

As we all know, the star first made her name on the Aussie soap show Neighbours before being catapulted into pop music history.

She first made waves with ‘Locomotion’ in 1987 and the earworm streak kept on coming with the likes of ‘I Should Be So Lucky’ and ‘Especially for You’.

The 2000s was certainly the pop powerhouse’s era with tracks that ruled the charts such as 'Spinning Around', 'Can't Get You Out of My Head' and 'In Your Eyes' among endless others.

And now people are calling 2023 the ‘Pandamic’ as Kylie proves herself as a pop queen once again, we won’t be forgetting her impromptu performance at #CapitalSTB anytime soon – check it out!
