Eurovision? me? Dannii be so silly!
DANNII MINOGUE may have strong ties to Eurovision — but the Let It Shine judge says Australia shouldn’t bother asking her to perform now they’re eligible to take part in the contest.
Her former Australian X Factor contestant, Dami Im, was runner-up last year, and her one-time British X Factor protégé Lucie Jones represents the UK at Eurovision this year.
As for one day singing for her homeland, Minogue, 45, told Guilty Pleasures: ‘Oh no. I couldn’t handle the nerves. Could you imagine? It’s frightening. I’ll stand at the sides and encourage.’
The single mum is willing to dabble in the charts again — perhaps as a ‘guest vocalist’ on a dance track — but being mum to Ethan, five, rules her out of recording a full album.
‘I was in the studio on Sunday recording vocals for a project in Australia. There will always be stuff that I do. I love getting behind a mic,’ she said, before adding: ‘I can’t commit myself full time like I used to with being the kind of mum I want to be. I don’t want to share that responsibility.’
Group Five to Five won Gary Barlow’s BBC1 musical theatre contest on Saturday, which saw Robbie Williams rejoin Take That to sing The Flood.
