Kylie to perform and be presented with BRITs Global Icon Award!The BRIT Awards 2024 with Mastercard today announces that multi-million selling international superstar and pop phenomenon Kylie Minogue will receive the BRITs Global Icon award at this year’s ceremony, which takes place Saturday 2nd March, in recognition of her career spanning across five decades as one of the world’s most successful and iconic music stars. Kylie - who is also nominated for International Artist of the Year - is confirmed to perform on the night, joining the already-announced Dua Lipa and RAYE.

Her multiple awards include 3 BRIT Awards, 18 ARIA Awards, 2 MTV Awards and 2 Grammy Awards. Kylie is the only female artist to score a No.1 album in five consecutive decades in the UK. In 2023, she released her number one studio album, ’Tension’, preceded by the international smash hit single ‘Padam Padam’, which earned Kylie her second Grammy Award earlier this month. In the UK alone, Kylie has achieved seven UK No.1 singles, and nine UK No.1 albums.
Kylie 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!"
