|Kylie Minogue singles chronology|
"Celebration" is a song originally by Kool & The Gang, released in 1980 as the first single from their album Celebrate!.
The song was covered by Kylie Minogue, and released as a single in 1992. It was recorded by Kylie in 1991 for her fourth studio album, Let's Get to It, but it was not included on the album's release. However, it later appeared on the 1992 Greatest Hits album and was released as the second single. It peaked at no. 20 in the UK Singles Chart and at no. 21 in Australia. One of Kylie's least commercially popular singles, it has been cited many times as one of her favorite songs, and unlike "Finer Feelings" and "What Kind of Fool (Heard All That Before)", "Celebration" was included on her greatest hits compilation albums Ultimate Kylie and The Best of Kylie Minogue. The Techno-Rave mix of the track is featured on the Kylie's Non-Stop History 50+1 album. It was also Kylie's last single with PWL and Stock Aitken Waterman. The music video was filmed in Rio de Janeiro.
Kylie first performed "Celebration" on tour during the On a Night Like This Tour, where it was featured in a hits medley during the second section of the show. The song was then performed once during the Homecoming tour during the show on December 31 2006, as it was the New Year. Kylie then performed a new remix the song during the Kylie Summer 2015 mini-tour during the penultimate section of the show. This version of "Celebration" also appeared in all shows of the Christmas concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, as well as various other performances in 2016.
