Mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins and tenor Placido Domingo teamed up last night for the Royal Variety Performance 2012, celebrating the show's 100th anniversary.
Katherine Jenkins and Placido Domingo sang together as part of the star-studded line-up for the Royal Variety Performance last night. It's the 100th anniversary of the entertainment show, and was attended as usual by The Queen.
Jenkins and Domingo performed 'Come What May' from Moulin Rouge, and Jenkins also opened the show by singing the national anthem. She commented: "It's an honour. It does make you nervous when the Queen is watching you. You want to do your best."
The 100th anniversary show also featured performances from Nicola Benedetti, The 3 Chinese Tenors, a newly re-united Girls Aloud, boyband One Direction and comedians Bill Bailey and Rhod Gilbert. The show was introduced by David Walliams.
It was the fourth time that Katherine Jenkins has appeared at the Royal Variety Performance.
