First Look: Kylie Minogue "Get Outta My Way" Video

Is everyone ready for the premiere of Kylie Minogue's new video tomorrow for "Get Outta My Way," the second single from the Aussie pop queen's latest album Aphrodite? Well, guess what: it's here now. Vertigo Shtick contributor Kurt Bitter and I had something of a heated discussion over video of a performance Minogue did of the song last week on America's Got Talent, in which I saw an obvious homage to Madonna's iconic 1990 MTV Video Music Awards performance of "Vogue" with a nod to Britney Spears' chair dance phase, while he saw one clandestine pop star and original, spot-on precision choreography.

The video is decidedly all those things: it's "Vogue" meets "Stronger" meets "Slow" (with lighting design by "Can't Get You Out of My Head"), complete with tightly sculpted blonde (and occasionally black) voguers, chairs galore, and a 41-year-old singer who has rarely looked sexier. And with the frightening gold knuckle jewelry adorning her right hand, when Kylie Minogue is ready to dance I'd get outta her way too.
