Kylie exclusive: Why I *have* to do THAT Jason Donovan duet

Kylie Minogue has all-but confirmed that she and Jason Donovan will be getting back on stage together for that infamous reunion duet very soon.

Speaking exclusively to Yahoo! omg! ahead of the release of her new album 'The Abbey Road Sessions', the Aussie popstar told us that she HAS to perform 'Especially For You' with her Neighbours c0-star - because the pressure is getting too much.
She said: "You know what, I feel like I have to do this. People are getting more and more desperate. They're like 'please, for the love of God can you just do it because we need it out of our system'."

Kylie and Jason were all set for a reunion duet this summer at Hit Factory Live in Hyde Park, when the wash-out British weather forced the event to be called off.
Although Pete Waterman's gig has been rescheduled for an indoor event at the O2 on December 21, the Aussie pair's names have not been placed on the promotional poster.
But by the sounds of things, the duet will be added to the bill if the petite songstress has anything to do with it.
She added: "I was as disappointed as everyone else when the Hyde Park show was cancelled. Literally all the rain in the world was in London."
Kylie Minogue is celebrating 25 years in the industry with an album recorded at Abbey Road
And Kyles, who is celebrating 25 years in the music industry this year with reworking of her classics at Abbey Road, confessed that when the two of them got together ahead of the doomed concert, they'd actually been a bit worried about the dancing element to the classic 1988 pop song.
She said: "We'd rehearsed one or two days before. It was quite weird for the two of us to be in a studio because we don't see each other that often.
"And we looked at each other and said 'did we ever sing this live?' and we realised that we hadn't because the only performances that we'd done were way back in the day when you didn't even hold a microphone on Top Of The Pops.
"We just did the mild choreography with the leap into the arms and the spin. So that's become the even bigger question - if it happens, are we going to manage to do this thing that doesn't have a name?
"The leap. So I hope it happens. That's a really long way around of not answering a question. I hope it happens. I just can't say it's a yes at the moment."
