Grammy awards 2024: For Padam Padam, Kylie Minogue wins for the first time in 20 years

According to grammy.com, Minogue beat out David Guetta, Anne-Marie, and Coi Leray ("Baby Don't Hurt Me"), Calvin Harris with Ellie Goulding ("Miracle"), Bebe Rexha and David Guetta ("One in a Million"), and Troye Sivan ("Rush").


The 55-year-old pop star received her first Grammy award in 20 years with Padam Padam, a pounding Eurodance song named after the sound of a heartbeat. Come Into My World, her 2004 best dance recording, brought her a previous victory.


This year, Minogue defeated four other contenders in her category, including Rush, the popular club anthem by fellow Australian Troye Sivan, and Miracle by Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding. Two of David Guetta's songs were in the running: Baby Don't Hurt Me, featuring Anne-Marie and Coi Leray, and One in a Million, featuring Bebe Rexha.


The Premiere Ceremony, a pre-show event, featured 85 prizes, including the best pop dance recording award. Minogue thanked the LGBTQ+ community, which is the cornerstone of her fan base, on the red carpet afterward.


"I would like to express my gratitude for sticking by me for such a long time, through thick and thin," Minogue said to Laverne Cox, host of E!'s red carpet. "We experience the highs, lows, and everything in between, and it feels like the beginning of a new chapter knowing that we have each other's backs."


The singer's Grammy is the most recent honor for Padam Padam, a song that was widely regarded as a surprise hit for her four decades into her career. It became Minogue's highest-charting single in ten years on the UK charts upon its release in 2023. Her first number-one hit in the US on the Billboard dance/electronic charts was Padam Padam.


After Timebomb in 2012, it became her first top 40 hit in Australia on the Aria charts. Minogue broke the record for the longest time between appearances on the broadcaster's countdown, with a span of 26 years, when it ranked at No. 48 in the Triple J Hottest 100 last month.


The 66th Grammy Awards saw a number of notable winners, including Billie Eilish, whose poignant Barbie contribution What Was I Made For? won several accolades, including best song written for visual media and song of the year; alternative supergroup Boygenius, who took home three honors, including best rock song and performance for their song Not Strong Enough; and fans of pop singer Taylor Swift, who learned of her unexpected new album while watching her accept her win for Midnights.
