The full lineup for the 2019 Royal Variety Performance has been announced, and it's a stellar list of names.
Here's all you need to know about the 2019 performance:
The star studded event will take place on Monday, November 18 at the London Palladium.
It will then be shown on ITV in December. The exact and time has yet to be confirmed by the channel.
Robbie Williams will be duetting with rock icon Sir Rod Stewart and jazz singer Jamie Cullum, in brand new collaborations from his new album The Christmas Present.
Other performers include:

Usually, the performance is attended by select core members of the Royal Family.
The special event is held in aid of the Royal Variety Charity, of which The Queen is a patron, and the money raised helps people from the world of entertainment in need of care and assistance as a result of old age, ill-health, or hard times.
It has yet to be confirmed which members of the Royal Family will attend this year, but we can expect the likes of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
