Kylie Minogue to perform at the Queen’s 92nd birthday
Kylie Minogue might be known as the princess of pop, but now she’s set to perform for a Queen.
As the Australian returns to music with her new album, Golden, the royal family have signed her up to perform at a special 92nd birthday concert.
The BBC is hosting a special concert at the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the monarch’s birthday, with acts including Kylie, Sir Tom Jones and Sting.
In a surprise move, US R&B performer Shaggy, famous songs such as It Wasn’t Me and Hot Sexy Lady, will also be performing at Queen Elizabeth II’s 92nd.
Lewis Carnie, Head of BBC Radio 2, said that the show “promises to be a spectacular evening of entertainment destined to bring the whole nation together.”
“The BBC is to broadcast a special concert in celebration of The Queen’s 92nd birthday on Saturday 21 April @RoyalAlbertHall,” the royal family wrote on Twitter.
They also confirmed The Queen and many other royals will be in attendance themselves.

It won’t be the first time the Australian has performed for Her Majesty.
Kylie has graced the Queen’s presence many times over the years, including an iconic mash-up of her greatest hits outside Buckingham Palace in 2012 for the Queen’s Jubilee.
And if one queen isn’t sufficient, there could be a few drag queens in town when Kylie performs at this year’s New York City Pride.
Kylie takes to the stage as headline act for the closing night of Pride Island.
