Kylie Minogue has secured her reputation as pop princess, earning a prince's ransom in booking fees. The starlet reportedly made a whopping $1-million for a half-hour performance at the Qatar Airways Gala Dinner in Sydney, according to The Daily Telegraph.

The performance, at The Dockside in Darling Harbour, would have netted the Minogue $33,333.33-per-minute as she performed just seven of her greatest hits. Titles included, Spinning Around, All the Lovers, Wow, Better The Devil You Know, Step Back In Time, Celebration and Can't Get You Out Of My Head.

However, the Sydney Morning Herald claims that Kylie only made half the total sum for her seven songs. A paltry $500,000.

The gala dinner was no stranger to celebrity guests. Kylie Minogue was joined by the likes of Jennifer Hawkins, Ian Thorpe and UK reality star Millie Mackintosh. Former Miss World Australia, Erin Holland, was also in attendance, and later gushed over Minogue's performance to the Daily Mail Australia, "Kylie was amazing,' she said while adding 'She had the whole room crowded to the stage dancing...totally infectious."

The exclusive event included a four-course sit down meal, as well as multiple dance and singing performances. The event was catered by celebrity chef George Calombaris, one of the hosts of Masterchef Australia.
