I think most of the performances (one song) were shown at some point during the evening plus some rehersal footage or maybe I just watched them online. I'm not sure.

The later hours of Children in Need used to promote West End Theatre very well in deed, in recent years the latter hours seem to be given over to endless repeats of the nights earlier events.  Please BBC revert back to your original musical theatre fest post 11pm!

Was there anything?
I gave up & went to bed!

I'm sure last year some of the Pop Goes The Musical performances were on a bbc website
