Concert for Diana @ Wembley Stadium

Today England commemorated the 46th birthday of Princess Diana, who died in a tragic accident in France almost 10 years ago, with a fantastic concert in the Wembley Stadium. The show opened with an emotional performance of "Your Song" by Sir Elton John, followed by Duran Duran, Lilly Allen, James Morrison, Fergie, Nelly Furtado, Joss Stone, Kanye West, Diddy and Take That to name a few! You can check out more pictures on my Diana Concert gallery!

(click the images to enlarge)
My favorite performances were Nelly Furtado (of course!!) singing "Say it Right", "I'm like a bird" and "Maneater"; James Morrison(what a beautiful voice); Kanye West had so much energy on stage, amazing; and i would say Fergie too, except for like half of her performance the sound system was down and we didn't hear her singing!!
Also appearances by David Beckham, Dennis Hopper and Sienna Miller.
