Had Princess Diana not been killed a decade ago, today would have been her 46th birthday. To mark the date and the 10th anniversary of her death, London is hosting the massive Concert for Diana today, and NBC will broadcast it tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific.
The tribute concert's star-studded lineup includes the favorite artists of Diana and her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry: a wide range of performers from Elton John to Lily Allen to Joss Stone to the English National Ballet. Matt Lauer will host the U.S. broadcast.
I admit I'm not usually one for watching televised tributes of any sort, but the list of performers for this one has me intrigued — and I'm especially excited about Ricky Gervais and Mackenzie Crook performing, though I wonder if their number will make the cut for the U.S. broadcast. What about you? Will you be watching?
