Nice car.
 
2012-08-12 09:40:44 PM
Ha! Left hand drive.
 
2012-08-12 09:40:44 PM
I have no idea who this is.
 
2012-08-12 09:40:46 PM
Is this considered lip syncing?
 
2012-08-12 09:40:56 PM
I'll tell you, I REALLY like this motorized stage thing. Very cool idea.
 
2012-08-12 09:40:58 PM
Jessie J is hot. Also left hand drive on the rolls? Fail, London

At least Sisqo will get some work again.

babysealclubber: DamnYankees: babysealclubber: It's not a good sign that either people weren't asked to perform their own songs, or those same people refused to perform.

Did you imagine they'd be able to arrange a Pink Floyd reunion? They are Olympic organizers, not gods.

Gilmour would have done it. Waters is the problem, but for that song he's not vital.

And STFU Seacrest


It was the other way round this time. Waters was asked but only for one song. He seemed to like the idea but Gilmour thought it was not enough.

make me some tea: Jessie J is the UK's Katy Perry apparently.


I think she's more like their Ke$ha.
 
2012-08-12 09:41:37 PM
I swear i got better sound quality on my computer from the live stream than from the actual NBC broadcast. Am i just crazy from hearing Seacrest?

DamnYankees: I'm seriously trying to think of what the closer of this thing could be other than Oasis performing. Who else is left who wasn't in this or the opening ceremonies? Elton?


There could always be a reprises.

she should probably have that rash looked at.

The Bestest: Pontious Pilates: Toronto is putting a bid together for 2024. And I read a Yahoo article recently that says some local politicians in Toronto are considering a joint bid with Niagara Falls/Buffalo, NY. As a native WNYer, i think that would be cool as shiat, for the first international games to be held across the world's longest friendly border. BUT, I can't imagine who among anyone involved would say "You know, Toronto made a good case for themselves in their last two bids, but you know what they're missing that would put them over the top? BUFFALO."

..actually, a cross-border bid might do just that. Has that ever been done before? Closest thing that comes to my mind was when South Korea and Japan jointly hosted the World Cup.


Exactly! I think it's a fantastic idea on paper... But I don't see how it could possibly work in practice. Like someone said above, there's something of a precedent when Japan and S. Korea jointly hosted the World Cup. I think it would be cool as hell, but i just don't see it happening.

Who the hell is this?

That's not how I've heard the song before.

(anyone who watched postseason baseball last year knows this song all too well)

IMDWalrus: He was definitely lip-syncing. He loses points for that, and for how by-the-book the cover was. The best covers of the song are the ones that make it batshiat insane. Brand's was just...boring.


Seeing your handle with this comment made me smile :)
 
2012-08-12 09:42:52 PM
Wait, did she just give the peace sign or the British middle finger?

But do they have black hip hop ends?

Supposedly Muse is supposed to perfom their new single "survival" It was the official song for the Olympics for everyone but the US.
 
2012-08-12 09:42:59 PM
Well. This is happening.

Nope. He's not FLAAAAVA FLAAAAV

What the fark? Kate Bush was on there and they didn't show it? JFC. Now I want to find a clip of it. She rarely ever sings live, either.

..well, I'm certainly pumped up for post-season baseball now
 
2012-08-12 09:43:25 PM
At least they've got entertainment somewhat relevant to most of the Olympians, at least by age. No more Sir Paul McDouchebag.

I'm just waiting for the Kate Middleton pole dancing sequence.

FWIW, I haven't noticed any sound issues on the NBC broadcast. The sound was pretty inconsistent on the BBC feed though.

That would be...disappointing.

Just realized we still haven't seen Sting or the Spice Girls yet.

I guess rappers in the UK don't worry about looking hard all the time. Nice shirtless male dancers.

Well, pre-recorded live probably, even, but still.
 
2012-08-12 09:43:53 PM

Publikwerks: Is this considered lip syncing?


Nah. There's been some really obvious lipsycing, but I'm pretty sure she's singing live.

Is Fatboy Slim just hanging around in the octopus?

Is Taio Cruz British?
 
2012-08-12 09:43:54 PM
I never realized this dude was British.
