It is a brand new category, and our Kylie Minogue has taken home the first-ever gold statue.

Minogue beat David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Bebe Rexha and fellow Aussie Troye Sivan for the dance/electronic recording honour. This is the first year a Grammy has been awarded for Best Pop Dance Recording.

The single was released in May last year by BMG, as part of Minogue’s album, Tension.

Minogue has lived in London for 30 years but recently bought a home in Melbourne to be closer to family. She has been nominated for six Grammys throughout her career and won twice.
