I believe this is taking place tonight; does anyone know which musicals are taking part this year?

Oh, really? Not much.

I suppose it will be interesting to see the Bodyguard, but I don't know that I fancy that show.

Was hoping for something with a big dance number!

As usual - the musical theatre line up is tiny, with ITV much more excited about One Direction, Ashleigh and Pudsey, Girls Aloud, Kylie Minogue and Robbie Williams...

The 4 Matildas were there plus some of the other children so my guess is they did Naughty and Revolting Children as well.

I feel sorry for the Queen having to sit through this rubbish year after year - highlights this year were Bruce Forsyth forgetting his lines (well, not strictly true, couldn't read them is more accurate) and a leaden cross-talk act between Ronnie Corbett and David Walliams that didn't raise a laugh.

It has its moments. Who can forget Charles and Camilla driving there in their limousine through a political demonstation?
