Griffin bet Grohl that he wouldn’t sing Kylie Minogue’s ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ at Foo Fighters Melbourne concert last night. Grohl accepted the bet but didn’t sing the song.

“I won! He owns $100,” she tweeted today.

Kathy and Dave must have had quite potent Minogue conversation. At her show last night she told the audience they discussed who was hotter, Kylie or Dannii?

Neither Grohl nor Griffin could work out why the Australian Prime Minister was handing out an ARIA to Kylie. “Obama doesn’t hand out awards to Taylor Swift,” she said. “How many awards can you give Kylie? ARIA, another night to honor the Minogues and all of their Minogueness”.

She also pointed out how Dannii Minogue is like the Minogue you call when you can’t get Kylie. “Danni is like Hilary Duff,” she said. “When you can’t get Hilary, you get Haylie”.

Last night she had a couple of special guests at the show. “Kath & Kim came 2 my show last nite,” she tweeted today.

Last night was Kathy’s last show in Australia. Kathy’s next gig will be on December 9 in Columbia, MO.
