SuburbanCowboy: They didn't cut out the Muse song. It didn't happen yet.


Yes it did, NBC cut it. It was after Eric Idle, before Queen.

That looks like Flo Jo's track suit.

Where are the Sex Pistols?

I bet The Ramones would have done it better...

Watching this makes me glad Chicago did not get 2016. How bad would that have been?

Pontious Pilates: old trying to be Jimmy Page?


Um Brian May is Brian May, he's not trying to be Jimmy Page.

make me some tea: I think they might be showing more US athletes than UK, but yeah.


At least this time they don't have any reporters on the field to be interviewing people during the actual ceremony.

make me some tea: I see there are a ton of folks who watched the original broadcast. Very interesting.


Yeah. We just wanted to see how bad a botch NBC would make of it and let the non-spoiled know what happened While We Were Away.

Hey, I always play for laughs, bit overall I'm liking the show, and the fact that Lauer and Vieira aren't yammering is a bonus.
 
2012-08-12 10:16:22 PM
Why is Christina Aguilera ruining Queen. What the hell.
 
2012-08-12 10:16:22 PM
OK London. I'll forgive you for the spice girls because of the Brian May solo.
 
2012-08-12 10:16:24 PM
I'd rather see Eric Idle to this than her.
 
2012-08-12 10:16:28 PM

SuburbanCowboy: They didn't cut out the Muse song. It didn't happen yet.

Also, Brian May says that Honey Badger don't care.


Ok, they better not have cut it.
 
2012-08-12 10:16:34 PM
Meh, getting someone to cover Queen is a losing proposition. No matter who they get, it'll never be good enough.
 
2012-08-12 10:16:35 PM
Jessie J...she needs to call me.

Minarets: paj: NBC cut the Muse song.

They cut Muse for a wothless guitar solo? Fark that noise.


Whoa, buddy. That's Brian May's guitar solo you're talking about!
 
2012-08-12 10:16:49 PM
Holy crap, just no... this chick is terrible... kill it with fire
 
2012-08-12 10:16:51 PM
The audience though, that's cool. I can't imagine what that sounds like.

It's in the works tho for a tour this year...google "Queen Hologram".

What is this? SHUT UP SEACREST
 
2012-08-12 10:17:01 PM
Jessie J may have sucked, but nothing can ruin (Dr.) Brian May.

TheBaldOneMpls: Meh, getting someone to cover Queen is a losing proposition. No matter who they get, it'll never be good enough.


Exactly. So just use Freddie's recordings! Zero people would be upset with that.

Exactly.

Recoil Therapy: They should have done the Eric Idle bit as the very last thing with a giant inflatable foot coming down on top of the stage to end it all.

No Olympics in the future would ever top that....


Best idea ever.

And they're cutting to break right before Greece's national anthem, if I recall.
 
2012-08-12 10:17:26 PM
They're going to cut the handover ceremony to Rio aren't they?
 
2012-08-12 10:17:27 PM
No we are the champions?

Should have been holo-Freddie'd.

The more formal stuff is next (flag handover etc) then the Rio segment (fun) and then the speeches, then more fun (no spoiler, just stick around)

Gosling: make me some tea: I see there are a ton of folks who watched the original broadcast. Very interesting.

Yeah. We just wanted to see how bad a botch NBC would make of it and let the non-spoiled know what happened While We Were Away.


That's why I'm here.

DamnYankees: TheBaldOneMpls: Meh, getting someone to cover Queen is a losing proposition. No matter who they get, it'll never be good enough.

They could have changed the music version they played here, but the version they did play here sounded faster than the album but the slower than the fast version they performed live when Freddie was alive.

Yup. There is an encore. Unless NBC cuts it.

geom_00: LadyBelgara: Ohh nooo, you're not allowed to ditch the football season! :(


Have you seen the HATE for my school?? ESPECIALLY on Fark

Lady, I LOVE talking to you, but I am NOT sure about the CFB threads....


Yeah, I hear you. I don't know that the CFB regulars would go after you, but I can understand it being uncomfortable.

I've gotta watch football on my computer at 10pm myself this year, but damned if it's gonna stop me!

BBH: Watching this makes me glad Chicago did not get 2016. How bad would that have been?


I can sum it up exactly how bad it would be for you:

Dan Aykroyd, Jim Belushi and John Goodman would've got up on stage with the surviving members of the Blues Brothers Band and done "Sweet Home Chicago."

At this point, I'm guessing they're waiting for Belushi to join his brother before attempting to bid.

we could have gotten jim belushi on a harmonica. that would have been great
