Kylie Minogue won’t just perform at this year’s BRIT Awards; she’ll receive the Global Icon Award.

The awards, set to take place on Saturday, 2 March, in the UK, will star Minogue, Dua Lipa, RAYE and many more as performers, with Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp set to host.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the BRITs said the Global Icon Award is being presented to Minogue for “recognition of her career spanning across five decades as one of the world’s most successful and iconic music stars”.

Reacting to the news ahead of the award ceremony, the Spinning Around singer said, “I am beyond thrilled to be honoured with the Global Icon Award and to be joining a roll call of such incredible artists.

“The UK has always been a home from home, so the BRITs have a very special place in my heart. I have some amazing memories from the awards over the years, and I can't wait to be back on the BRITs stage. See you at the O2!”

Minogue will be joining good company in Taylor Swift, with Elton John, David Bowie and Robbie Williams winning the previously named Icon Award.
