I've been the the penguin show at Philip Island (not far from Melbourne) several times. It's a colony of about 20k penguins, and each night between many hundred and a couple of thousand come ashore. They have viewing platforms and lights set up.
I have asked them about eating penguin (they wouldn't give me one). They do not believe the local aborigines ate them, they have found no bones in the middens. Hence they believe they are not good eating. Not surprising really, they are fatty little birds, adept at spending months at sea.
The Stars in their Eyes reference means that this is kids being dressed as music stars and doing covers of their numbers to win a TV talent show. In this case "feeling a little shaky" would probably be a young Shakin' Stevens impersonator.
I hate explaining jokes!

Some friends have a flat overlooking the bridge just there. I just got news from Mrs wife that luckily they were out to work already when it happened.
