Kylie Minogue is a household name with a career spanning over 45 years but you might have noticed she has been out of the public eye these passed couple of years.

But that has all changed recently with her new single and surprise performance last week.

The Aussie popstar surprised the U.K. with an unannounced performance at the Capital Summertime Ball in London this last weekend, performing her new single Padam Padam to massive applause.

This comes after the single in question hit no. 6 of the U.K.’s official charts this being her highest chart peak since All The Lovers in 2010.

Her major success is largely attributed to the TikTok generation with her new single being used on countless social media memes.


The hashtag #padampadam has currently been used more than 10 million times on TikTok.

So thank your kids for bringing Kylie Minogue back!
