Kylie Minogue Padams Her Way To Another Incredible Accolade Thanks To Grammys Win

It's almost 20 years to the day that Kylie won her first Grammy – and she's only gone and done it again.

Grammys night got off to an exciting start on Sunday, with Kylie Minogue picking up her second award from the Recording Academy of her career, almost 20 years to the day after her first win.

It’s fair to say that the Australian pop star is on something of a roll right now, following a 2023 that included a number one album, a sold-out residency in Las Vegas, a hugely popular TV special and her first top 10 single in over a decade with Padam Padam.

And clearly, that momentum is showing no signs of slowing down, as Kylie has now been awarded the second Grammy of her career.

Before Sunday night’s main broadcast got underway, it was revealed that Padam Padam had been awarded Best Pop Dance Recording, beating stiff competition from David Guetta, Calvin Harris and Troye Sivan.

Kylie did not attend the pre-ceremony, with music producer Lostboy instead accepting the award.

However, she did share a clip of herself celebrating the news on Instagram shortly after her win was announced.

The chart-topping singer previously scooped her first Grammy win in 2004, when her hit Come Into My World secured the Best Dance Recording prize.

Following its release last summer, Padam Padam peaked at number eight in the UK singles chart, her first top 10 since 2010’s All The Lovers, after the song garnered a following on TikTok. Follow-up album Tension hit number one in both the UK and her native Australia.

In the coming weeks, Kylie is due to receive the Icon prize at the Billboard Music Awards, and has also been recognised in the Best International Artist category at this year’s Brits, which will take place next month.
