The telethon was pulled together in just a fortnight, and as such, the Concert for Ukraine line up has been pretty fluid. Becky Hill, Snow Patrol and Paloma Faith are among the other big-name performers taking part, but we wouldn't be too surprised if there were a couple of unexpected guest appearances on the night.
We've listed the official Concert for Ukraine line up just below, with every performer set to belt out one or two numbers with an underlying message of support and solidarity.
The performances will be interspersed with short films, and viewers will be urged to donate money throughout the evening. Here's where to watch Concert for Ukraine for free online.

How to watch Concert for Ukraine online from outside the UK
If you're abroad, you won't be able to stream Concert for Ukraine on ITV as you'll find that the ITV stream is geo-blocked. And it doesn't appear that it will get a wide broadcast across the globe.
Unfortunately, the only way we can really think to get around these geo-restrictions is to use a VPN, which will fool your laptop, mobile or streaming device into thinking it's back in the UK and thus will let you watch the concert on the ITV Hub.
Right now, we think the best VPN for streaming is the service ExpressVPN, which is fast, easy-to-use and works on a wide breadth of devices including Android and iPhones, the Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation and more. Once installed, locate a server in the UK and watch as if you were back in blighty!
