Pop phenomenon Kylie Minogue is set to perform live at the 2024 BRITs, and it has been revealed that she will receive a massive award on the night.

The multi-million-selling international superstar will be presented with the BRIT Global Icon award at the ceremony, which takes place on Saturday 2nd March. The prize comes in recognition of the Aussie artist’s amazing career, which spans five decades.

The BRITs Icon award has previously been won by the likes of Elton John, Robbie Williams, David Bowie and Taylor Swift. 

Kylie has shifted over 80 million records worldwide, with nine number one albums in the UK. She has amassed five billion streams and has been the recipient of three BRIT Awards, 18 ARIA Awards, two MTV Awards and two Grammy Awards, the second of which came earlier this month.

Kylie - who is also nominated for International Artist of the Year at this year’s BRITs - said in a statement: "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!" 

News of the former Neighbours star’s live performance at The Brits follows the announcement that Dua Lipa and RAYE will also take to the stage.

Nominations for the 2024 BRIT Awards include Blur, Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, The Rolling Stones, Taylor Swift, Lewis Capaldi and Ed Sheeran.

The winners of the genre awards will be determined by a public vote exclusively through Instagram, which opened midday Thursday 1st February and closes this coming Thursday 15th February, at 6pm. More information on voting, including full terms and conditions, can be found at brits.co.uk/vote.
