It's Dannii Minogue like you've never seen her before.

The Aussie star, 49, has swapped her trademark glitz and glam for something a little more grungy in an extreme transformation that's left her unrecognisable.

Different Dannii

In a video posted to her Instagram account on Monday, Dannii is seen impersonating not one but four members of a '90s boyband — complete with baseball caps, double denim and even faux facial hair.

"Getting my '90s boyband on," she captioned the clip, which sees her busting some serious dance moves to ultimate '90s boyband Backstreets Boys' hit, "Everybody".

The homegrown icon's makeover wasn't just for fun — though it looks as though she's having a blast — but to announce her latest gig with radio and podcast app, LiSTNR.

Dannii is the new host of both the Oldskool 90s Hits digital radio station as wells as the LiSTNR exclusive podcast series, The 90s with Dannii Minogue.

Dannii is, of course, perfectly qualified to lead listeners on a nostalgic journey back through each year of this particular decade having been a '90s pop starlet herself.

In 1990, she released her debut Top 10 single and album, Love and Kisses, and also got her big acting break on Home & Away which saw her relocate from Melbourne to the UK.

"I soon found myself living in London during one of the most exciting times in music and pop culture," she said in a statement shared with Yahoo Lifestyle.

"I sported the skunk streak, mom jeans and chokers and loved every minute of it!"

While we don't think Dannii will commit to wearing her retro wardrobe while she's on-air, The Masked Singer host certainly doesn't mind throwing it back to her early career.

To celebrate her older sister Kylie's 53rd birthday this year, Dannii shared a sweet snap of the pair sporting hair scrunchies and piles of curls in a TV Week photoshoot from March 28, 1988.
