Kylie happy to be "a spectator" for the Olympics ceremony

Kylie happy to be

Most pop stars would give their right arm to perform at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics Games – except Kylie Minogue that is.

The former Neighbours actress, 44, who performed at the closing ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games has confessed she’d rather watch it on telly (or possibly from some VIP box). 

Can London be as good as Sydney?

Speaking at the private view of the Warhol Mauro exhibition at the Halycon Gallery in Mayfair, Kylie said: “I’m just going to to be a happy spectator!” Adding: “The Sydney Olympics holds such a special memory for me I don’t think it will be able to live up to that, but I’m definitely excited, I can’t wait for the opening ceremony.”

In 2000, Kylie stunned audiences at the closing ceremony of the Sydney Olympics by performing ABBA’s Dancing Queen. 

She did however offer some advice to the performers of this year’s ceremony, which is nice. She said: “I’d say to any of them, just breathe and double check everything!”

Kylie, who was wearing a figure-hugging red dress had a laugh hanging out with Ronnie Wood on the night. In fact, Ronnie was so taken with Kylie that at one point he got his iPhone out to take a snap of the singer. Let’s hope Ronnie’s girlfriend Sally Humphries didn’t mind too much who had er, accompanied him on the night.
