London: Cheryl Cole, who had not been named among the official stars set to perform at Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert, will now be performing in the concert. The 28-year-old star will be performing live in front of a global audience for the first time in more than 12 months, when she sings for the Queen on June 4.
She may even sing a duet with the organiser Gary Barlow.
“There are already huge names appearing on the bill but Cheryl is the cherry on top,” a leading daily has quoted a show source as saying.
“She is one of the biggest stars in Britain and will ensure young people tune into the concert.”
“She doesn’t do many live appearances but when Gary asked her she couldn’t turn him or the Queen down,” the source said.
“She is promising a spectacular performance and I am sure the Princes will all be happy she is on the bill,” the source added.
Cheryl had hinted about her concert appearance in an online video this week. While speaking to a magazine in Cannes, she pointed at a Roberto Cavalli dress and said: “It may come to the Jubilee.”
