Kylie panned for Logies performance
Kylie panned for Logies performance

Kylie Minogue's world premiere performance of her new single I Was Gonna Cancel was panned on social media after her Logies appearance.

Minogue, who has relocated to Australia to be a mentor on The Voice, was supposed to be a highlight of the TV awards in Melbourne on Sunday, which also featured performances by Ed Sheeran, Jason Derulo and John Newman.

But instead Minogue was accused of miming, delivering a "garbage" song and dressing her dancers at bargain menswear store Lowes.

"Kylie's dance routine looked like it was performed at my school camp back in 1989," TV personality Myf Warhurst tweeted.

"Kylie Minogue is SingStar champion of the #logies2014" and "Kylie Minogue - I think it might be time to retire. Deliciously atrocious lip-syncing #logies #kylieminogue" were among other tweets.

Dancing With the Stars judge Todd McKenney also joined in on Twitter writing: “not sure that was a great idea for her. #mimingbadly


Minogue's white bermuda-shorted romper outfit was also knocked.

"Kylie channelling Abba girl fashion styling," posted another user, while media personality Joe Hildebrand said "Congratulations to Kylie Minogue for dressing her entire dancing troupe at Lowes."

Another commented "Some1 pls tell #kylieminogue that firstly a 46 year old woman singing a teenager song ain't cool, & lip syncing isn't cool."

@beqbeq said "#tvweeklogies what the feck was that #kylieminogue #didn'tloveit"

@HPFATZ described I Was Gonna Cancel as "a crap song".

"I wish u did cancel #kylieminogue," he tweeted.

It is not the first time Mingoue has been accused of miming.

In 2010, the singer was criticised for lip-synching her performance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

She later wrote on her Twitter page: ‘Relax peep, EVERYONE has to mime at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!!”

Scott Cam wins Gold Logie

Jovial The Block host Scott Cam has won the coveted Gold Logie and prevented Asher Keddie from making a clean sweep of the awards night.

Cam was the hot favourite to win Gold on Sunday following a betting plunge a few weeks ago.

He said the highlight of winning was getting to kiss pop princess Kylie Minogue who presented the award.

"I kissed Kylie Minogue, that's pretty cool," Cam said when he stepped up to the microphone.

"It's unbelievable, it's 11 o'clock at the Logies and I'm still sober."

Offspring star and last year's winner Asher Keddie was in line for a hat-trick after taking out the Silver Logies for Most Popular Actress and Most Outstanding Actress.

The winners:

Scott Cam, Gold Logie, Most Popular TV Personality

Asher Keddie, Most Popular Actress, Offspring

Chris Lilley, Most Popular Actor, Ja’mie, Private School Girl

Scott Cam, Most Popular Presenter, The Block

Home and Away, Most Popular Drama Series

But Cam, who earlier won a Silver Logie for Most Popular Presenter, was standing in her way.

It's the first time he has been nominated for Gold which is determined by a public vote.

The Nine Network personality beat comedian Andy Lee, Keddie, presenter Carrie Bickmore and actors Essie Davis and Stephen Peacocke.

However Lee didn't go home empty handed.

His comedy show Hamish And Andy's Gap Year Asia won the Most Popular Light Entertainment Program.

Even Peacocke got the chance to take the stage as a winner after Home And Away won Most Popular Drama Program.

Home and Away has won a total of 42 Logies, making it the most awarded program in Logies history.

Ray Meagher, who plays Alf on the long-running soap said: “We’re into our 27th year and it was a real surprise (to win award). We didn’t think we’d make it. In Australia, there aren’t that many things being made let alone exported. We’re very proud of that.”

My Kitchen Rules, also from Channel Seven, beat out two series of The Block to win in the Most Popular Reality Program category.

Cam said his three children would be proud of him winning the Gold Logie and would be at home "going berko".

He promised to use his carpenter's skills to good use and hollow out the bottom of the Logie and "make it into a stubby holder".

Keddie's two Silver Logie wins are a timely publicity boost for Offspring which returns on May 14.

An overwhelmed Keddie said she couldn't think straight after getting a vote of confidence from her fans (Most Popular) and her peers (Most Outstanding).

She has now won five Logies in two years.

She said she wanted to dedicate her second Silver Logie to her "beautiful, incredibly talented and inspiring friend and colleague" the late Wendy Hughes.

"I'd like to dedicate this to her because she is a woman and an actress that I have admired since I was a little girl."

Chris Lilley won most popular actor for his character as the obnoxious private school girl Ja'mie.

Lilley wasn't able to collect his Logie in person, sending a videotaped message, saying he was in London promoting his latest comedy, Jonah From Tonga.

But he did send one of "Ja'mie's" friends Kwami (actor Albert Mambo) to accept the award.
