Dannii Enthralls The Nation

Dannii stunned Australia this evening with an electrifying rendition of "Xanadu" on the grand finale of channel 7's "It Takes Two". Everything about the performance was perfect. Dannii looked absolutely amazing, wearing a gravity defying silver dressed - split all the way up to her ladybits with a plunging neckline that proudly displayed her beloved baps. As hard as it was to tear my eyes away from this ravishing goddess for even a second, I did manage to notice that her rollerskate wearing dancers also looked rather fabulous in their camp costumes. From the moment Dannii appeared on stage, I was completely blown away by her blinding charisma and otherworldly vocal ability. The rumour about Dannii performing an uptempo version of "Xanadu" turned out to be true. Some fans were hoping for the album version but a 5 minute chill out interpretation of "Xanadu" just wouldn't work on a camp show like "It Takes Two". It's always a treat to see her perform live and tonight was vintage Minogue. Dannii's vocal delivery was as entrancing as ever and like her sister, Dannii is one of the last great showgirls. She doesn't have the strongest pipes in pop but she more than makes up for it with her stagecraft, dazzling beauty and unparalleled fabulousness. Check it out below!

Check out these vile comments about Dannii's performance on the ITT message board:

An example - She needs to hang up the microphone!!!
Her singing is shocking, i will never understand why they try to sing someone elses song.
And her showgirl act is getting a bit old!
Dannii you're a nice girl, but hun quit before u do more damage!!!


HOW RUDE!!!!!!!!!!

I bet Kylie posted that!

I don't think Kylie could spell 'microphone'. I think I might just have to join that site and do a bit of trolling of my own! ;-)

Stellar performance! I agree about the vocals, but at least it was in tune! I particularly like the outfit! A lovely tribute to Olivia's classic!

Dannii looked and sounded great IMO! I think that above comment slagging Dannii was meant for Kylie :P

I would have preferred if Dannii did the Club Dildo version of Xanadu, but she still rocked it <3

I've started to refer to Dannii's new cd as Club Dildo on the Dannii Forum - and I'm now in the troll camp!

Noone has a sense of yumour anymore!

I wasn't that impressed by that performance to be honest - it started off brilliantly and seemed like it was going to be an epic and "dark" dance number, but it turned into a rather dated sounding cheesy cover - like something you'd expect to have been dropped from the Unleashed tour!

However, the baps looked fabulous throughout!

Welcome to my world, Johnny D!

It was cheesy, Jay - but I think it suited a camp show like ITT. Something edgier would have been out of place. They also hyped it as a tribute to Olivia and didn't mention "Club Dildo" at all - not that it matter anymore...
