A bit off topic, but apparantely President Obama has called the Prime Minister to congratulate the UK on a brilliant Olympics, praising the organisation of the Games and Team GB medals.

Back on topic, how touching are these scenes?!

The flag bearers are coming.
Caught a glimpse of Armenian flag (red, blue and orange).

Jeez, she's impressive! Beautiful song.
And they appear to have finally got the sound balance right.

Athletes from all nations coming through the crowds.
Team GB athletes are in danger of getting blind from the many flashes.

The stadium looks wonderful, but I haven't enjoyed things so far. What on earth were The Pet shop Boys dressed in? Bring bak the athletics.

My first thoughts immediately. I fail to see what's British about that. Loving the ceremony so far!

I WISH people would call Harry, Henry! It is his name after all and so many people on twitter are like who's Prince Henry!

Aren't the Irish brilliant?

Love it too.
Quite ashamed to say I've never heard the songs before though.

It's so disturbing when someone is singing when the athletes are coming in. There should have been just some music.

Why? I can understand that for the opening ceremony when it's formal and 'strict' but now it's a party!

Sorry I seem to be a loan voice but I think most of the music has been poor. Why are we getting the same songs repeated?

I'll remember that next time it's 2AM and she's listing to the song with the sound to maximum.

I think the athletes' arrival is taking slightly longer than expected, so they are re-playing the music.
