Kylie Minogue says she would do a cover version of Bette Midler’s 1979 hit and theme song by the same name as the Oscar winning film ‘The Rose’.
The 45-year-old cancer survivor, actor, pop-star and now coach on The Voice Australia and UK revealed that The Rose would have been her first choice; “I would have to punch out The Rose,” she said in an interview on the Today Show this week. “When I was about 14 and 15, besides all the usual singles from Whitney Houston and Madonna, I would sing Bette Midler a lot” she added.
As the only actual rose between the thorns this song choice would have been a very appropriate choice. Minogue shares the stage of this reality show with her good friend and Good Charlotte front man Joel Madden, will.i.am and Ricky Martin,
‘All the singers love her… the auditions are so nerve-wracking. She’s got such good energy.’ ‘She lights up the show, she’s awesome,’ said contestants and Joel Madden agrees.
But Madden, the only original coach, said returning for season three was a ‘no-brainer’ and “It’s perfect timing because me and my brother just finished our record so I could come back. There was nothing stopping me. I love this show, I love Australia. I wanted to be back.”
