This short segment features an on-stage reunion of Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue and was broadcast on Seven News Adelaide on 10 September 2018.  

Although it’s brief, the few bars we hear of the Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan duet ‘Especially For You’ are instantly recognisable and designed to conjure up memories of their history as a couple off-screen, and on-screen as Scott and Charlene in Neighbours.

The song, written and produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, was first released in 1988 and featured on Jason’s debut album Ten Good Reasons (1989).  

The inclusion of the pair’s romantic dance moves makes for news-friendly footage. It’s a good example of the kind of human interest story often shown at the end of a news broadcast which aims to leave viewers feeling positive or nostalgic.
