Riding a giant float shaped like a duck, Kylie Minogue made a special appearance at the 84th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday.
The petite 42-year-old, who is in the US to promote her new album, was clearly delighted to be involved in New York's famous annual event.
Speaking beforehand, she said: "I've never been on a float! Let me tell you, I'm so excited, my voice has gone up an octave!"
Other stars who were helping kick off the celebrations included newly-engaged Jessica Simpson, Kanye West and Joan Rivers, who was joined by her daughter Melissa.
Tens of thousands of onlookers turned out to watch, and millions more watched the live television broadcast.
Famous for its giant balloons, the parade this year featured a high-kicking Kung Fu Panda, a Smurf, Pillsbury Doughboy and Spider Man.
