Kylie Minogue Performs Sizzling ‘Padam Padam’ at People’s Choice Awards

People’s Choice Awards 2024

Singer won the Best Pop Dance Recording Grammy for the song earlier this month

Kylie Minogue performed “Padam Padam,” her dance-pop single from 2023’s Tension during the 2024 People’s Choice Awards on Sunday.

Appearing in a gauzy red dress while bathed in red lighting, she was backed by dancers with choreography that perfectly synched-up with the sizzling dance number.

The Australian singer won the inaugural Best Pop Dance Recording award at the Grammys for the summer 2023 smash “Padam Padam,” which was Number 20 on Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Songs of 2023 list, earlier this month. Titled after Kylie Minogue’s onomatopoeia for the sound of a beating heart, the track’s win from her 16th album Tension marks her first Grammy trophy in two decades, having previously won Best Dance Recording in 2004 for “Come Into My World.”

Speaking to Rolling Stone on the Grammys red carpet, she called her nomination in the new category “poetic,” since she’s been telling people she made “pop-dance” music for years. “Win or no win, it was already momentous for me that it’s 20 years since the other,” she said. “I’ve got a set now. I’m gonna start collecting. I’m so moved by representing longevity and that you can adapt and evolve.”


Earlier in the month, Minogue teamed up with Sia on “Dance Alone,” which will appear on Sia’s upcoming album, Reasonable Woman.

Minogue joined Lainey Wilson and Lenny Kravitz as performers during Sunday evening’s ceremony. Held this year at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica and hosted by Simu Liu (who is nominated for Movie Performance of the Year for his role as one of the Kens in Barbie), the annual People’s Choice Awards recognize the best in film, TV, music, and pop culture, with the winners determined by votes from the public.
