Kylie Minogue covers Dolly Parton's "Islands in the Stream."

Although Kylie Minogue holds her own in the pop pantheon, she hasn't forgotten her predecessors and gleans inspiration from icons outside the genre.

The Aussie pop queen performed an exclusive preview concert on 60 Minutes Australia Sunday (March 25) and delivered a twangy live rendition of Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers' "Islands in the Stream."

Rocking out in her bell-bottomed jeans, Minogue proved she can shift between genres with ease -- and  she clearly has a ton of fun doing it. The ARIA Hall of Famer will be dropping her 14th studio album, Golden, this April.

"Islands in the Stream" was penned by the Bee Gees. Parton and Rogers' recording of it peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, knocking out Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart" in 1983.
