Kylie Minogue covered Lady Gaga’s “Marry the Night” and all across the land, inaudible queer screaming could be heard.
The pop goddesses blessed the mortal realm with the divine surprise cover ahead of the 10th-anniversary reissue of Lady Gaga’s seminal album, Born This Way.
Kylie Minogue first teased the disco-infused collaboration, the third from the reissue, early Friday morning (11 June), asking Gaga: “What are you doing tonight?”
A few hours later, she tweeted: “Surprise! My version of Lady Gaga’s Marry the Night is out now!
“Join me in celebrating the tenth anniversary of Born This Way. Time to dance #LOVERS!”
Describing Minogue as a “warrior queen”, Gaga added on Twitter that the full album, Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary, will be released 25 June.
As they were legally obligated to, Kylie Minogue and Lady Gaga stans joined forces to put their paws up and hit the stream button into oblivion.

Celebrating the 10 years of Born This Way, Gaga has recruited stars “representing and advocating for” the LGBT+ community to reimagine six of its tracks.
Kylie Minogue’s “Marry the Night” cover follows Big Freedia’s relentlessly queer rendition of “Judas” and Orville Peck‘s “country road” cover of “Born This Way“.
There are three covers yet to be unveiled: “Highway Unicorn (Road to Love)”, “You and I” and “The Edge of Glory”.
The City of West Hollywood recently marked the album’s anniversary by naming 23 May as “Born This Way Day”.
City officials unveiled a sprawling Born This Way street painting – and Gaga herself graced West Hollywood with her divine presence as she posed with fans.
She was awarded the key to the city in recognition of the towering impact of title track, “Born This Way”, and its pro-LGBT+ lyrics.
