The six Queens' names are Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and Catherine Parr. They all come together as part of a pop girl group, and they each sing a song about who has suffered the most as Henry's wife. The winner will be the new leader of the group.
The audience is surrounded by vibrant songs alternating with different musical styles, and the accompaniment part is played by a female orchestra.
Nguyen Thanh Hien, known by her stage name “Hien”, was honored to play Catherine Howard, the 5th wife of Henry VIII. Along with five other female singers, she received rounds of applause from the audience for her skillful singing and performing abilities.

After the performance, Hien shared that this was one of the most challenging projects that she had ever done because there was a lot of singing and dancing involved.
Nguyen Thanh Hien has been famous in the Hungarian entertainment industry since 15 years ago. When she was 14 years old, she competed in the Hungarian Megasztár sixth season and was the fifth runner-up.
After winning the contest, Nguyen Thanh Hien became a beloved vocalist with a successful career and released two music albums. In 2015, she played the main role in the "Miss Saigon" musical play at the Budapesti Operettszrinház Theatre.

In 2014, Hien was accepted into Berklee College of Music, one of the largest contemporary music training institutions in the United States. She graduated in 2019 and then worked as a producer, sound designer, songwriter, and singer in the U.S. In the summer of 2023, Hien returned to Hungary to be with her family.
