There's plenty of music talent to pack into the three-hour show, and we're particularly excited at the news Gary Barlow's surprise duet will be with none other than Cheryl Cole.

The Royal Family plus 10,000 members of the public will watch the Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace, having enjoyed a Diamond Jubilee picnic in the gardens of the Palace earlier.

Big screens in various locations, including Hyde Park, will transmit the show across the country, and it will be broadcast live on BBC1 and Radio 2.

Hosts include Lenny Henry, Miranda Hart, Rob Brydon and Lee Mack, and Controller of BBC1 Danny Cohen said: "This will be a very special concert. Expect some last-minute surprises."

Gary Barlow said of the Diamond Jubilee Concert: "The balcony where Will and Kate kissed will be part of the concert. In fact, all the balconies will be used. We have amazing projections that are going on the front once it gets dark.

"At the end, the royals will be on stage to finish things off, though they won't be singing."

See who's singing what below. Cannot. Wait.
