Kylie whipped the crowd into a spin with seven of her classic hits as she closed what has been dubbed the 'best ever' Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The pint-sized pop princess changed costume twice as she performed to the 40,000-strong crowd and up to 8 million viewers at home.

After the show she tweeted she had an "amazing night" and said she it was an "honour to be there."

Lulu also returned to the stage to perform her hit "Shout" while fellow Scot Dougie Maclean sang his classic Caledonia, a song which has grown to become a common part of Scottish culture and an unofficial national anthem.
