Kim Wilde joins Lawnmower Deth on stage at Download! UPDATED!

Kim Wilde Krusher Download 2016

UPDATE: Some chap called Martyn Allen uploaded a video of Kim singing “Egg Sandwich” so I’ve added that below. Thanks, Martyn!

I kinda knew this was going to happen (no, I wasn’t told – I guessed and the person “in the know” wouldn’t confirm or deny it, just so he doesn’t get into trouble) but it doesn’t make it any less special.

Kim Wilde is awesome. Always has been, always will be, and after being made aware of Lawnmower Deth’s cover of her most famous track “Kids in America” reportedly said that she liked it. When there was a push to get it to Christmas number one, Wilde said at the time that she would join them on stage at Download if it made it.

It didn’t.

But being a great sport, she only went and did it anyway. This evening she was introduced the crowd and performed what was probably the fastest rendition of the song of her life. The crowd greeted her warmly, responded with the obligatory “wo-oah”s and she walked off with a huge smile on her face.

Don’t believe me? Then check out the video below courtesy of another music legend, Krusher Joule!

Kim Wilde – former teen crush and now most definitely elevated to adult crush. We are not worthy!
