A nice nod to Sir Tim Berners Lee there as we all sit online chatting about this ceremony! Without Sir Tim we wouldn't be doing that!

This looks good, David Beckham with the torch. A nice thank you for him for his efforts to get the Olympics to London.

I'm confused, who are these people being shown? Who is the memorial wall for?

EDIT: A reminder of the 7/7 bombings.

Singer Emelie Sande I think.

A really lovely tribute to victims of July 7 bombings.
I was in Paris at the time and, if I'm not mistaken, it happened the day after London was announced as host of 2012 Olympic Games, so it's a fitting tribute.

It's indeed Emili Sand, singing "Abide With Me".

The hosts of the finnish TV said before David Beckham came along about who will light the fire, that there has been talk about the names Steve Redgrave, Roger Bannister, David Beckham and so on. But that they will be along tonight, but they will possibly not light the fire, but that the fire will be lit in a special way...

What a nice tribute, Emeli Sandé is such a great singer.

You are not mistaken. I was confused until the commentator explained what it meant.

Yes, it did happen the day after.

What a lovely tribute to the victims.

If David Beckham lights to torch, I think i'll give up hope. Delivering it is enough.

There are ways you can watch it now, on the first page EIIR posted a link. That is if you wish.

Athletes time! This should be good.

I will join you.

We all know he is just waiting for his Knighthood. God, the day we have to say Lady Beckham....

Anyway, back on topic, that was beautiful. Emeli's voice is stunning, I love her hair.

Woohoo, athletes.

Anyone think it's weird to see athletes taking pictures?

This petal thing intrigues me.

It's not Beckham; according to all reports, Beckham will deliver the torch to the stadium but he's definitely not lighting it.
