Kylie Minogue - Category: "Best International Music Act"
"Sun coming up on another day, gotta second-hand chance, gonna do it again, got rainbow colours and no more rain ..." Kylie Minogue wrote these very personal lines towards the end of her breast cancer therapy. That was in the summer of 2006. "During therapy I just couldn’t bring myself to write", she recently explained in an interview, "it wasn’t possible. But when it was over, I was happy to devote myself again to other things besides my illness." Minogue wrote the refrain to "No More Rain". A liberated cry to all her fans and friends: Yes, I’m back again! And how! Kylie Minogue’s most recent album "X" – fast, clear, hard and pure – marked the entrance into a new phase of life, a more conscious one. One in which the Australian star finally takes control. This brilliant lady, who is the quintessential pop musician in a career that started back in the 80s, has reinvented herself a second time. And what an important and mature metamorphosis it is: She is back on stage and in the hearts of her fans around the world – Quintessential Kylie.
