OMG Freddy!!!!! He was so amazing. I was also very happy to see the Spice Girls reminded me of my childhood. And now I feel old

Yes, I get all that. My problem with it is that it's all totally meaningless. Not to mention completely hypocritical. John Lennon sang about having no possessions and yet still travelled in private jets and left millions to his wife and family. Lennon obviously didn't like to practice what he preached, which is typical of people of his ilk - do as I say, not as I do.
People of his ilk? What ilk would that be? Singer? Songwriter? Englishman? Wealthy person? British subject? Man? Human? No need to answer, this is a rhetorical question.

Come on, aren't there any artists who could sing this song without ruining it?!
I'm trying to listen only to the "We Will Rock You" bit.

What is this Jessie J doing with this great song? Why she has been chosen to sing, I don't like it at all.

My sentiments echoed in these two comments:

Prince Charles ‏@Charles_HRH It's slightly worrying that the dead performers are better than the one's who are alive. #closingceremony
Prince Charles ‏@Charles_HRH Someone get the Pope on the phone. One wants Freddie Mercury resurrected. #closingceremony

I applaud Jessie J for attempting to perform We Will Rock You. But no one will ever perform it as great as Freddie imo.

Ruining it - an mercifully that is over (that song with her - not the rest .....loved most of it) obviously not lip synched.

Jacques Rogue, Mayor Boris Johnson and Mayor of Rio de Janeiro Eduardo Paes on the stage for flame handing ceremony.
Best wishes to Rio!

Brazil's National Anthem is playing.
