Kylie Minogue finally played at Glastonbury yesterday (June 30), 14 years after her set was cancelled due to her cancer diagnosis in 2005.

The pop legend held back tears when she performed on the iconic Pyramid Stage.

"In 2005 I was meant to be here," she told the crowd. "Circumstances meant that I did not make it."
