London Olympics Closing Ceremony: Who Will Perform?
The 2012 Olympics are finally coming to an end today, which means it’s time for everyone involved to let loose and party! And everyone knows you can’t throw a great party without great music (which is probably why no one showed up to my ‘appreciate Nickelback party’) — Fortunately, Nickelback will not be terrifying the great people of London tonight.
So, who will be performing?
The Spice Girls: Yeah, the whole gang will be performing tonight. Sporty, Ginger, Baby, Posh and Scary will be reuniting in London and it feels so good. Don’t lie and act like you aren’t excited for their performance. Listening to The Spice Girls in your bedroom all alone is kind of like picking your nose; everyone does it but no one will admit it.
The Who: The band responsible for such hits as, ’Pinball Wizard’ and ’Baba O’Riley’ will take the stage in London. Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey promised to compose some new music for the closing ceremony. Let’s just hope it’s better than their horrific Super Bowl halftime performance.
Muse, Ray Davies, Annie Lennox and even that horrible creature Russell Brand will make an appearance during the ceremony. I have a feeling I will “accidentally” sit on the mute button when his god-awful voice comes through the speakers on my television.
You can watch the closing ceremony live on NBCOlympics.com starting at 4 p.m on the east coast. It’ll also be shown in prime-time tonight on NBC.
