Minogue Returns For The 2012 Parade
Kylie Minogue recently released a statement saying she will be the guest of honour at the 2012 Mardi Gras.
"I am coming home for Mardi Gras this year!"
"I simply cannot wait, and it's going to be a beautiful way to celebrate 25 years of this relationship," said the singer, who has been re-releasing acoustic versions of several of her tunes this week.
"Your support over the years has just been phenomenal and I can't wait to come home and share that with you. So see you in March."
Twitter also got a look-in, with the ARIA Hall of Fame inductee writing: "Fourteen years since my last Mardi Gras! Can't wait to see you there in March."
Kylie last took part in the parade in 1998.
Over the years, the parade has been host to several big-names.
Matthew Mitcham, gold-medal winning diver who achieved that feat with a near perfect score on his last dive at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, led the floats in 2009.
The actor Rupert Everett appeared in 2007, while 2011 saw the renowned comedian Lily Tomlin lead the parade – adorned in a billowing rainbow dress.
The Mardi Gras will be running through Sydney streets on March 3.
