She was cheered by thousands of people in the crowd who had gatehred to watch her iconic performance.

Kylie added: “We’re all here in this moment.

“It always dawns on me about my story, and not only that by our story. It’s 30 years of stories.

“Back then when I was watching some of the artists who covered my songs. That is the spirit and gracious nature of Glastonbury and people I guess.

“I asked one of those people if he would join me in this momentous moment and sing that song together.
“He said ‘alright i’ll come and play in the band’”.

She then introduced Chris Martin who came out to play guitar for Can’t Get You Out Of My Head. He even sang a few lines too when Kylie encouraged him in front of the crowd.

Relieved she was holding it together Kylie added: “I didn’t cry too much, it’s good.”
