Who knew Kylie Minogue was a fanilow?

The pint-sized Aussie singer’s upcoming tour, in support of her new album, X, is reportedly inspired by none other than Barry Manilow himself.

Kylie will do her best to bring to life the singer’s one and only Lola, the title character in his hit classic “Copacabana” — and she already has Barry’s seal of approval.

"I love her. She will make the perfect Lola,” Barry tells OK!.

Kylie’s tour kicks off in Paris in May and will, naturally, feature the 39-year-old crooning her take on “Copacabana.” The show-stopping performance will also include ostentatious trimmings and costumes, Britain's Daily Star reports.

“It’s very theatrical," a source says. "It all ties in nicely with Kylie’s love of showgirls.”

Here's hoping Barry makes an appearance!
