    Kyle Minogue finally made her Glastonbury debut this past weekend. And she did so with the help of some special friends in fellow Aussie Nick Cave and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

    For her Sunday afternoon set, Minogue brought out Cave and the two performed their 1995 duet “Where the Wild Roses Grow”. The track, which later appeared on Cave’s Murder Ballads, has only been performed live by the pair a handful of times.

    Minogue was originally booked to perform at Glastonbury in 2005, but a sudden breast cancer diagnosis forced her to cancel. Coldplay stepped in last minute to replace her and even performed her “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” hit as a tribute. On Sunday, she returned the favor by calling on Martin to perform a collaborative version of that same song.

    “In 2005 I was meant to be here on this very stage and circumstances meant that I didn’t make it,” she told the audience during an emotional moment during her set. “I wish things were different but life is what it is right? We are here together in this moment.”
