While the main point of the Olympic Games is to showcase each country’s athletic strengths and to keep raising worldwide standards of speed, power, and strength, the closing ceremony encompasses a much broader spectrum of the host country’s culture. London blew us away with the musical talents they chose to display in the closing ceremony this year. If you haven’t already watched, click here to review some of the acts. Performances came from the following: Queen, Kaiser Chiefs, George Michael, Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Taio Cruz, Ed Sheeran, Muse, Spice Girls, The Who, Liam Gallagher, fat Boy Slim, Eric Idle, and a few more that are slipping my mind at the moment.
When you really think about it, we grew up with some of the music that we heard from London’s closing ceremony. It really doesn’t matter where music is from, but that we listen and enjoy it.
