Prior to its last minute cancellation, the centrepiece of the Hit Factory Live festival this summer was to be a duet between Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan. When the event was revived as a pre-Christmas bash at the O2 Arena earlier this week, there was no mention of such a thing. Could it still be on? Yes, it could. Kylie wants it to happen at least, and where there’s a will there’s a way (schedule permitting).
Speaking to the Daily Star, Minogue said: “I really felt for people when it was cancelled; it was so touching, the level of excitement. I was like: ‘Oh, someone’s gone and got a bubble perm and are all ready to go’. We did the rehearsal two days before and Jason and I looked at each other and realised we had never done it live as it was released back in the mime days of ‘Top Of The Pops’. We have actually done it live three times in rehearsals but that’s it”.
She continued: “They’ve revamped the show and I’ve said: ‘If I’m available, I’ll be there’. My schedule to the end of the year is making me cross-eyed – I’m all over the place. [But] if it doesn’t happen now, it’ll be something to look forward to [at another time]“.
