The BBC added: “This means the words will be sung in the Hall, and as we have always made clear, audiences will be free to sing along at home.
“While it can’t be a full choir, and we are unable to have audiences in the Hall, we are doing everything possible to make it special and want a Last Night truly to remember.
“We hope everyone will welcome this solution. We think the night itself will be a very special moment for the country – and one that is much needed after a difficult period for everyone. It will not be a usual Last Night, but it will be a night not just to look forward to, but to remember.”
Today the 2021 Last Night of the Proms was confirmed with “all the traditional elements” including Rule, Britannia! and Land of Hope and Glory’s lyrics remaining uncensored as they were last year.
