Ten years ago, to mark her 60 years on the throne, Queen Elizabeth was serenaded by the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Ricky Martin, Eric Clapton, Tony Bennett, Sir Paul McCartney and Queen's Brian May, who played a rock guitar version of "God Save The Queen" on the roof of Buckingham Palace.

Come Monday, besides a return appearance by Sir Paul, Her Majesty will find an entire band up on her roof, when the British pop-ska band Madness plays its hit "Our House" as the centerpiece of that day's Diamond Jubilee celebration.

Other name attractions set to perform, as confirmed by the BBC: Elton John, singing "Your Song, I’m Still Standing" and "Crocodile Rock"; Robbie Williams, "Mack the Knife"; boy band JLS, "Everybody in Love" and "She Makes Me Wanna"; as well as Kylie Minogue, Stevie Wonder and Shirley Bassey, with her classic (and highly appropriate for this occasion) "Diamonds Are Forever."

Dolly Parton's just-opened 9 to 5 was among those overlooked in the best musical category, though one of its stars, Allison Janney, received a nod in the leading actress race. The lively revival of the '60s tribal rock musical Hair received eight nominations, including best revival.
