Kylie Minogue to perform at the Queen’s 90th birthday

Star Wars actor John Boyega is also set to appear at Windsor Castle bash

Kylie Minogue is set to perform at the Queen’s 90th birthday.

The singer, who presented Coldplay with the Godlike Genius Award at this year’s NME Awards with Austin, Texas will take part in the four night celebration which is due to begin next month.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens leading man John Boyega will also appear at the celebrations on the private grounds of Windsor Castle, along with Beverly Knight, Jess Glyne and Catherine Jenkins.

The celebration will tell the story of the Queen’s life, from her birth in 1926 to her coronation in 1953, and her reign spanning more than 60 years, reports BBC News. The event will be broadcast by ITV on May 15.


Minogue recently mounted a legal battle in a bid to stop Kylie Jenner claiming ownership of the name Kylie. 

Jenner, who appears alongside step-sister Kim Kardashian in Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is looking to trademark the name “Kylie” in the US and wants to take ownership of the name for advertising purposes. 

The move has been open to opposition since August 2015 and in February KDB, an Australian-based business representing Minogue, filed their opposition to the application. Chief among KDB and Minogue’s concerns is that allowing Jenner to take the name Kylie will cause confusion for fans and also dilute the Minogue brand.

KDB describes Jenner as a “secondary reality television personality” and cites criticism she has faced from disability rights groups and African-American communities as testament to this opinion. 

Minogue already owns trademarks for the terms ‘Kylie Minogue darling’, ‘Lucky – the Kylie Minogue musical’ and ‘Kylie Minogue’.
