Not yet. Spice Girls will be rock bottom.
Leather bras and scantily glad ladies, obviously British. Must have missed that history lesson.

Doesn't she always?
At least, it looks as though she's actually singing - not miming.

Jessie J looking like a burlesque dancer. Chatting about money and riding in a rolls I believe.

It's an improvement from her usual get-up.

Tinie Tempah feat. Jesse J now.

OK, can someone explain the significance of a giant inflatable octopus?

I just have to post this:

It's not. I would prefer bright leggings and trainers to her looking like 'that'. She reminds me of a less elegant Dita VT.

I'm noticing that the athletes are so penned in that they're not able to party and dance to the music - which kind of defeats the purpose

Fabulous stadium lighting!

Guys, sometimes it's pointless trying to analyse every single detail. It is what it is, it's not meant to be analysed, it's meant to be enjoyed. It's a celebration of British music and some aspects of British culture. No one will identify with 100% of it, but enjoy what you can. It's a one off and it's special.

Frankie says Relax!
and enjoy

Same although there seems 'less' of them from the opening ceremony.

Props to Jessie for not lip singing.

ok - i get it .... its a party for the athletes. if you go with that.... it works.

btw - all the acts are lip synched. they said there was no time after the final events to wire the sound for the closing ceremonies - those holding microphones are just props.

cant wait to see how NBC edits this tonight.

Oh, I quite agree. But most of the things do have significance and those of us who are abroad want to make sure we don't miss it. At least, that's why I ask all those questions - not to criticise, to understand.

Jessie J, Tinie Tempah and Taio Cruz performing the Bee Gees’ disco hit "You Should Be Dancing".
