Lionel Richie,Â Katy Perry, Nicole Scherzinger and more led the star-studded lineup of celebrities who performed at King Charles lllâs coronation concert Sunday night.
The concert took place at Windsor Castle on the East Lawn of the castleâs grounds and featured a variety of acts, including everything from ballet and opera to classical music and pop tunes.
Perry â chic in a gold ballgown from Vivienne Westwood â belted out a powerful rendition of âRoarâ and âFirework,â while Scherzinger sang her own version of Christina Aguileraâs âReflectionâ from Disneyâs âMulan.â
Meanwhile, Richie sat at a black baby grand piano to perform The Commodoresâ classic, âEasy,â followed by his own hit âAll Night Long (All Night)â to a cheering crowd.
King Charles III, who was officially crowned the UK’s new sovereign at Westminster Abbey Saturday, was seen waving to concertgoers throughout the royal soirÃ©e.
He was seated beside wife Queen Camilla as they took in the performances alongside the cheery and energetic crowd. The couple were seated beside Charlesâ heir to the throne, his son Prince William, who was joined by wife Kate Middleton.
At one point during the evening, the Prince of Wales made an appearance on stage to praise his father â while also giving a special shout-out to his late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
âI want to say a few words about my father and why I believe this weekend is so important. But donât worry, unlike Lionel, I wonât go on all night long,â he joked.
âAs my grandmother said when she was crowned, âCoronations are a declaration of our hopes for the future.â And I know sheâs up there, fondly keeping an eye on us. She would be a proud mother.â
Also spotted in the crowd Sunday night were Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince George, 9, who sat in between their parents. Their youngest sibling, 5-year-old Louis, opted to stay home for this event â following the hours-long coronation one day prior.

Lionelâs daughter, Sofia Richie, was also spotted in the audience to support her dad. “Off to seeÂ @lionelrichieð¤´ð½,” she captioned a photo of herself wearing a pink pantsuit with black pumps via Instagram before showtime.
Other performers included Take That, Andrea Bocelli, Sir Bryn Terfel, Alexis French and Olly Murs.
The lineup was announced earlier this month, with the BBC saying in a statement at the time, âThe concert will celebrate a new chapter in the nationâs history, with themes of love, respect and optimism, celebrating the four nations, their communities and the Commonwealth.â
The event kicked off shortly after Prince William and Kate Middleton took to social media with a very relatable message followingÂ the coronation that took place in London.
âWhat. A. Day.,â the coupleÂ captioned a short filmÂ via Twitter, which gave royal followers a behind-the-scenes peek inside their day celebrating the new King. âThank you to everyone who made it happen #Coronation.â
The social media video, which was set to classical music, featured multiple clips with their youngest (and clearly very tired) son Louis, who went viral â again â for his slew of hilarious facial expressions.
