Australian broadcaster SBS is known for thinking big with their Eurovision acts, but one big name who is yet to perform at Eurovision is Kylie Minogue. And it looks like that’s not something that will be happening any time soon. In a recent interview with French newspaper 20 Minutes, Kylie explained that while she has been asked to do Eurovision, she would be too nervous to do it.
In the interview, Kylie was asked if she would accept the opportunity to represent Australia at Eurovision, if SBS were to ask her. She replied, “They already did. I would be way too nervous. I think I would be terrified. I don’t think it’s for me.”
It wouldn’t be the venue that would make Kylie nervous. She previously played the Globe arena in 2008 as part of her KylieX2008 world tour. And she’s played even bigger venues, entertained audiences all around the world, and has even performed to royals at the Royal Variety Performance – there’s basically nothing Kylie hasn’t done. But it seems having to face a televote makes Ms Minogue somewhat nervous.
Kylie also talked about her new Christmas album, Kylie Christmas, which features a duet with her sister Dannii. The Minogue sisters are currently taking second place in our poll on who Australia should send to Stockholm. So here’s a suggestion – if Kylie isn’t interested, maybe Dannii could go solo for her country.
