Prince William and Kate Middleton were seen cheering from the front row, seated with their children Princess Charlotte and brother Prince George.
On Twitter, people back home shared their thoughts on the incredible event.
One person wrote: “Looks brilliant.”
Others compared Adam Lambert to the late Freddie Mercury – whom he would replace.
“Sorry, but Adam Lambert has nothing on Freddie Mercury,” a second added.
A third said: “Adam Lambert is a good singer but no one can compare him to Freddie. Arguably one of the best vocals and talents ever. The shoes are very nice. big can never be filled.”
Jax Jones was the next to step onto the stage with female rapper Stefflon Don.
The couple lifted the mood with the upbeat song Instruction.
Stefflon wore a stunning red dress as she performed for the ecstatic crowd while they cheered her on.
