Ahead of the Britain’s Got Talent final this weekend, it has been announced that three West End shows will perform. The musical mashup will include songs from Les Miserables, The Phantom of the Opera and Mary Poppins, sung by the West End companies.

The musical event will see over 60 company members come together for the first time. These include Michael Ball, Matt Lucas and Carrie Hope Fletcher from Les Miserables, Killian Donnelly from The Phantom of the Opera and Zizi Strallen and Charlie Stemp in Mary Poppins.

This weekend’s performance will also celebrate the West End anniversaries of Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera, turning 35 and 34 respectively.

Cameron Mackintosh said: “Britain’s theatrical talent is the best in the world so it is a wonderful opportunity after seven months of enforced lockdown to be invited by Britain’s Got Talent to showcase three of my greatest British musical hits with their fabulous West End casts all bursting to perform again and remind audiences what an unforgettable thrill it is to enjoy the exhilaration of a live show.”
