Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubliee concert, also known as the Party in the Palace, attracted well over a million people to Buckingham Palace Monday night.

The Queen herself -- celebrating 50 years on the throne of England with numerous Golden Jubilee events throughout the year -- showed up shortly before 10 p.m., reports, wearing a set of ear plugs in case the music got a little too loud.

Sir Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, Ozzy Osbourne, The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson, Tony Bennett and numerous other artists were on hand to serenade the Queen.

McCartney sang one of George Harrison's songs, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," accompanied by Clapton. For the finale, The Beatles classic "All You Need Is Love" brought all the performers on stage.
