Kylie Minogue Wins Grammy for Best Pop Dance Recording



Kylie Minogue Wins Grammy For Best Pop Dance Recording

Australian pop star Kylie Minogue has been awarded the first-ever Grammy for Best Pop Dance Recording. The prestigious award was presented for her global hit track, Padam Padam, which was featured in her 2023 album, Tension. This marks Minogue’s second Grammy win after a two-decade gap since her first win in 2004 for Best Dance Recording with the song Come Into My World.

The Eurodance track, Padam Padam, named after the sound of a heartbeat, became a surprise smash hit for the 55-year-old singer. It resonated strongly with her fanbase, particularly the LGBTQ+ community, who have been supporting her throughout her long career. In her red carpet appearance, Minogue expressed her gratitude to the LGBTQ+ community for their unwavering support.

Competing against four other nominees in the category, including fellow Australian artist Troye Sivan with his club anthem Rush, as well as Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding‘s Miracle, and two tracks by David Guetta featuring Bebe Rexha and Anne-Marie with Coi Leray, Kylie emerged victorious.

The 66th Grammys also awarded other notable artists, such as Billie Eilish, who received multiple accolades, including Song of the Year and Best Song Written for Visual Media for her melancholic Barbie contribution, What Was I Made For? The alternative supergroup Boygenius also took home three awards, including Best Rock Song and Performance for their track Not Strong Enough. Taylor Swift fans celebrated her win for Midnights as well.

The Grammy win for Padam Padam adds to the song’s string of achievements. It became Minogue’s first top 10 song on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Charts in the US, while in Australia, it became her first top 40 hit on the Aria Charts since her 2012 release, Timebomb, ending her 26-year absence from the top 50.

Although Kylie was not physically present at the ceremony held at Los Arena, her co-writer Peter Rycroft, also known as Lostboy, accepted the award on her behalf. Rycroft expressed his gratitude to Kylie for believing in the record and taking it around the world during his acceptance speech.

Kylie Minogue, who continues to achieve success in her career, reflected on her drive and adaptability in an interview on the red carpet. She emphasized her curiosity, driven nature, and her willingness to embrace change as key factors in her ongoing success.
