The Capital Weekender With Ministry of Sound 10pm - 6am
Who will get the invite to perform at William and Kate's wedding? We take a look at the artists with royal connections.
Lady Gaga met the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance in Blackpool in December 2009. Could we see the 'Telephone' singer performing at the Royal Wedding and more importantly what crazy outfit would Gaga pull out of the bag for the event!
Within 36 hours of the wedding being announced Gary Barlow was chatting to the Prince of Wales (at the Princes Trust Rock Gala) - trying to secure the invite?
Tinie Tempah is Prince William's artist of choice and since meeting at an event in summer 2010, the pair have become good friends. The royal has admitted that Tinie's chart smash, 'Pass Out' is one of his favourite songs! - Could this play a part in the wedding of the year?
Newlyweds Russell and Katy are big fans of the Royal Family and have admitted to being totally sucked into all the excitment since the royal pair announced their engagement. Brand recently revealed that he felt Prince Charles was scared of him when they met however the comedian is rumoured to be on the line-up to do a comedy sketch at this year's Royal Variety performance. Could Brand add a dose of comedy to the big wedding bash?
Singer Kylie Minogue received an OBE from Prince Charles back in 2008. The pair also recently attended the Pride of Britain awards, could this put the 'Get Outta My Way' singer at front of mind when putting the wedding celebrations together?
JLS recently revealed in an Interview that they would love to perform at the Royal Wedding and also beleive they have the perfect song! Who's money is on 'Everybody In Love'?
The Royals have always had a soft spot for the feisty fivesome and the lovely Emma has always been a favourite of both William and Harry. Although the girls a not officially performing together as a band at the moment, could a Royal invitation be enough to tempt them to take to the stage once more?
Well if we cant get the Spice Girls to reform for the gig, surely this bunch are the next in line? Hopefully by the time of the wedding the girls will have put their difference behind them to belt out a version of 'Love Machine' for our Groom.
So with Prince William being a massive fan of Tinie Tempah who do we think is Prince harry's favourite musician? Dizzee Rascal of course! Surely with Harry in the running for Best Man this gives him the right to invite the 'Holiday' singer to perform.
X Factor winner Alexandra Burke performed hit single 'Broken Heels' at last year's Royal Variety performance in front of The Queen and Prince Charles. We think she would rock the Royal bash!
Fergie performed at the Diana Tribute concert back in 2007 and since the band themselves now have a Dirty Dancing soundtrack classic in their set, this provides the cool credible band with cheesy wedding classic in one go!
N-Dubz have been added to the line up for this years Royal Variety Show. The band are also being compared to the Black Eyed Peas so if there is a ban on other Will's on the wedding guestlist, this trio could be drafted in to perform some BEP classics!
Cheryl Cole will be performing at the Royal Variety performance show next month and we all know she always comes out on top in a good, Cheryl Vs Danni battle...
Princes William and Harry have made no secret of their love for Urban/Hip-Hop music. Well surely no party can be the same without two of the biggest Urban acts in music, Kanye West & P Diddy! Beats plugging in one of the Royal duo's iPods right?
X Factor winner Leona Lewis performed for the Queen at the 2008 Royal Variety Performance. Could we see her performing hits like 'A Moment Like This' when Will and Kate tie the knot?
Next year marks the 10th year anniversary since the bands split. Surely if the money is right the cheesy 5-piece can dust off their greatest hits cd for the evening.
Well after all the barbadian beauty is the 'Only Girl (In the World)' - surely this guarantees Ri-Ri a spot on the Wedding performers list!
'Crazy In Love' singer Beyonce has always been one of Charlie Boy's favourites. Providing the rumours of a 'Beyonce bambino on the way' are still false at the time of the wedding, could we see the singer a hot favourite for the event line-up.
This year's biggest new band on the block who have a 'Heart Vacancy' which still needs filling. Simples!
If the royals opt for a traditional wedding then Westlife have their performance invitation in the bag. The band specialise in soppy love classics and accompanied by their famous stools on stage could be the perfect choice of performer for Will & Kate's first dance.
We think the odds on a Take That performance at the Royal Wedding are very high. Why? - because it's Take That of course!
I suppose this would depend on what day the Royal Wedding falls on but these are the perfect bunch to add a bit of colour to any celebrations.
Why? Just because its Bieber of course! Some of the world's biggest music stars such as Usher & Will.i.am have been hit by the bug, surely the Royal Family is next in line for some Bieber fever?
All three of Destiny's Child have hit it big in the UK with their various different projects and as a band have some classic hit music tracks. We have already looked at Beyonce's chances of a Royal invite but surely a couple of extra spaces at the wedding table in return for a Destiny's Child reunion is no big ask!
Mariah is always a hot favourite for any big gig, however with Carey expecting her first child next spring the Royal wedding may not be an option for the diva's work calendar.
Joss Stone performed at the Diana Tribute Concert back in 2007 after being approaced by the Royals. Being a big hit with both William and Harry puts the 'You Had Me' singer ahead in the race for Royal invites.
Miley Cyrus performed at the 2009 Royal Variety Performance and although Gaga stole the show, surely the Royals would remember the american star? right?
Elton John? Why? Because he always does!
Will Young is no stranger to Royal Performances and meets since bagging the Pop Idol title back in 2002. However is there room for anymore Will's at this wedding?
