Kylie Minogue is to play a special headline slot at BBC's Proms In The Park on September 8.

The 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' singer will be backed by the BBC Concert Orchestra at the show in London's Hyde Park, with support from classical group Il Divo and tenor Alfie Boe.

Minogue's Proms concert is part of her 25-year anniversary celebrations and the show will see the Australian singer's songs be re-interpreted with orchestral arrangements.

You can watch Kylie Minogue's re-worked, orchestral version of 'On A Night Like This', taken from last year's Abbey Road Sessions, by scrolling down the page and clicking.

Speaking about her Proms show, Minogue said: "I'm delighted to be performing at one of the UK's most outstanding nights of the musical calendar. To sing in front of thousands of people whilst being accompanied by the legendary BBC Concert Orchestra in such a special year is truly a dream come true."

In December last year, Minogue's 2001 single 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' was named as the most-played song of the last 10 years.

The track came top of PRS For Music's poll after receiving the most airplay and live covers over the past decade, beating competition from Britney Spears' 'Toxic' and Robbie Williams' 'Angels'.

Written by performer turned songwriter Cathy Dennis, 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' was originally turned down by S Club 7 and Sophie Ellis-Bextor before being picked up as the lead single for Kylie's 2001 album 'Fever'.
