The celebrated Palladium theatre in the heart of London's West End is tonight's venue for the 80th annual entertainment spectacular in which some of the biggest stars in the world come together to perform in front of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
With a line-up boasting everything from a special one-off reunion of Cliff Richard and The Shadows to the Robbie-less pop superstars Take That, and the raunchy gyrations of the Pussycat Dolls to the all-male dance company Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the evening is sure to have something to appeal to all tastes.
George Sampson , the 15-year-old winner of Britain's Got Talent, will perform a brand new dance routine, and three of the world's hottest female singers - Leona Lewis , Duffy and Rihanna - will also be strutting their stuff.
Comedy comes courtesy of Peter Kay (as his chart-topping alter-ego Geraldine McQueen), Jimmy Carr, Michael Mcintyre, Rhod Gilbert, and double act Alexander Armstrong and Ben Miller.
Theatreland box offices are sure to get a boost after the companies of Jersey Boys, Zorro, The Lion King and La Cage aux Folles give viewers a free preview of what they have to offer.
And a royal occasion wouldn't be complete without Queen guitarist Brian May, who will rock out with Wicked star Kerry Ellis, while another unlikely partnership comes in the form of Josh Groban's duet with Last Choir Standing winners Only Men Aloud. Director Richard Valentine; Producer Dominic Smith

PICK OF THE DAY
The Royal Variety Performance 7.30pm BBC1, BBC HD
If proof were needed that TV talent shows are taking over the world, just look at the line-up tonight: making their "royal" debuts are The X Factor's Leona Lewis (right), Britain's Got Talent winner George Sampson and the victors of Last Choir Standing, Only Men Aloud. Even Peter Kay gets in on the act by appearing as his Irish talent show-winning alter ego Geraldine McQueen. But as this is Quality Street-type entertainment, there should be something for everyone.
Topping the bill are Take That, while the Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, Duffy and pop veterans Cliff Richard and The Shadows (yes, they've reformed to celebrate their 50th anniversary) are also performing.
Of course, it's the comics who'll have the toughest job: will Prince Charles burst out laughing as he did at We Are Most Amused, his 60th birthday comedy gala, when Jimmy Carr, Michael Mcintyre and Armstrong and Miller take to the stage?
