Performed as part of the Olly Alexander-hosted The Big New Years And Years Eve Party, ‘A Second To Midnight’ saw Kylie joined by Alexander for a run through of their disco-inspired collaboration. During the song, the pair were joined by a handful of backing dancers, all wearing Olly Alexander and Kylie Minogue masks.

Speaking about the show to BBC News, Alexander said: “I feel very lucky to be doing it. It’s such an honour to bring in the New Year with everyone watching. I feel very privileged and excited.”

Elsewhere in the interview, he called Minogue a “Superstar. Legend. I first met her in 2015 when we supported her show. Over the years I’ve kind of wheedled my way in, so that I’m actually her friend.”
