Brilliant, with the lead in to Queen at the end quite sublime! Priti Patel must be incandescent that an immigrant from Peru, possibly illegally, got such privileged access!

A varied line up like that is always going to have parts that appeal more than others, but my only quibble was that good as Diana Ross once was, surely there was a British icon that could have closed it out?

The opening scene was a stroke of brilliance, probably kept a secret from but a small group so as to delight the viewers, including the BRF members. The drones were pretty amazing and it's nice to see technology being used so creatively.

As to the concert and the performers, I'm surprised that there weren't enough artists from the UK to showcase the depth of talent in the country. The few who did were a bit long in the tooth, or less known (but appealing to the yoof) and poor ol' Rod just couldn't get the puff to sing as he once used to. Whilst I like artists from around the world, it just seemed strange to have so many furriners performing. Alicia Keys, a supremely talented singer belting out her hit 'New York' seemed misplaced on such an occasion. Again, Diana Ross closing was great, and for her age brilliant, but surely there was a GB artist/group that could have had the honour ?

Maybe she is a particular favourite of the Queen? But maybe someone from the Commonwealth could have closed the show ...... Say Kylie Minogue singing something like this...

i suspect that the big media companies had a lot of say in who was put forward - plus of course they're trying to appeal to EVERYONE - so it's going to be a mish mash.

TBH i thought the opening was fantastic (Queen PLUS the Royal Marines!) but then it was a bit downhill from there

HMQ and Paddington Bear.
They could hardly ask her to do another parachute jump.

My daughter liked the “Lion King” number, although she said she thought they might have played one for Prince Charles…..”I just can’t wait to be King”.

But not of the USA. The last time I checked, both Alicia Keys and Diana Ross were American.
