Blues fan Lucie Jones will perform at Judgement Day at the Millennium Stadium
Former X Factor stars Rhydian Roberts and Lucie Jones are set to strike a chord with Welsh rugby fans this Easter Sunday when they perform at 'Judgement Day II' - the festival of regional rugby at the Millennium Stadium.
Runner-up in 2007 show, Rhydian, and 2009 finalist, Lucie, will take centre stage at the iconic rugby venue when the Welsh regions go back-to-back in RaboDirect Pro12 games on Sunday.
Rhydian, a former Llandovery College rugby fanatic whose early ambition was to play for Wales, will be performing two songs in the break between Cardiff Blues v Scarlets (kick-off 2pm) and Newport Gwent Dragons v Ospreys (kick-off 4.45pm).
Followed by X Factor finalist turned actress, model and MTV presenter Lucie, a Blues fan originally from Pentyrch, who will be hitting all the right notes during half-time when the Dragons face the Ospreys.
Also 'raising' the Millennium's fully-retractable roof throughout the day is up-and-coming local singing sensation and former Principality Premiership player Tim Cronin, who recently played before the Gary Barlow concert at Birmingham's LG Arena.
The 24-year-old singer-songwriter has played at the Millennium Stadium's 'fanzones' during the recent RBS 6 Nations. His repertoire features 'Remember Me' inspired by his rugby playing days at Glamorgan Wanderers and Neath rugby clubs.
