Kylie Minogue has now won her second-ever Grammy Award.
One of Australia’s favourite singers, Kylie Minogue, won the Best Pop Dance Recording category at the 2024 Grammy Awards.
The award was handed out in a pre-ceremony telecast, the Justin Tranter-hosted 2024 Grammys Premiere Ceremony. Minogue has now won her second-ever Grammy Award – this one for last year’s smash hit Padam Padam, following her 2004 win of Best Dance Recording for Come Into My World. She’s been nominated for Grammy Awards six times.
Minogue won the award ahead of David Guetta, Anne-Marie & Coi Leray (for Baby Don’t Hurt Me), Calvin Harris featuring Ellie Goulding (Miracle), Bebe Rexha & David Guetta (One In A Million), and Troye Sivan’s Rush.
Elsewhere, Sivan’s Rush lost the Best Music Video award to The Beatles (for I’m Only Sleeping), while Dom Dolla’s remix of New Gold by Gorillaz featuring Tame Impala & Bootie Brown lost to Wet Leg’s remix of Depeche Mode’s Wagging Tongue in the Best Remixed Recording category.
Meanwhile, Jess Cerro (aka Montaigne) and collaborators Tripod and Austin Wintory received a nomination for Best Score Soundtrack for Video Games and Other Interactive Media for their work on Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical. The award was won by composers Stephen Barton & Gordy Haab for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
Australian award-winning guitarist Tommy Emmanuel is another Aussie to win a Grammy Award today, winning the award for Best Arrangement, Instrumental or A Capella for Folsom Prison Blues, a tribute to Johnny Cash by Emmanuel and The String Revolution.
