Expect the gloriously unexpected, as Kermit the Frog takes to the podium, and celebrate lives well-lived, including Tilda Swinton's tribute to 'every alien's favourite cousin', David Bowie.
While some speeches are heard by millions, some remain unspoken- the secret draft prepared for Queen Elizabeth II during a military exercise for World War III and President Nixon's chilling public announcement should Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin become stranded on the Moon.
