Music will come from Gary Barlow, André Rieu, Gareth Malone and the Military Wives, Milos Karadaglić, Russell Watson, Amore, Nicola Benedetti, Andrea Bocelli and the cast of The Phantom Of The Opera.

Rieu will battle it out for Album of the Year with Andrea Bocelli for their albums And The Waltz Goes On and One Night In Central Park respectively.
