Kylie Covers Hurts

The other day I wrote about the band Hurts, who are taking Europe by storm. Cementing their status as European it-boys, and new gay icons, the band got a boost this week when the Australian pint-sized-pop-princess (and Europe’s Madonna) Kylie Minogue covered their single “Wonderful Life.” live on the BBC.

It’s a lovely reading of a sad song. Kylie, always robotic, and sometimes off-key, delivers on this one. She’s looks a bit older than her airbrushed album covers, but there’s something refreshing, and real, about her performance.
