Spice Girls and Royals Rock at the London Olympics Closing Ceremony
OMG! Did you watch the London Olympics closing ceremony?! It was amazing! OK, so here’s what happened. The Spice Girls stole the show, obviously! Closely followed by Liam Gallagher and his band Beady Eye, who performed after Posh and group, belting out the classic Wonderwall.
But they had some serious competition. Queen, Take That, Annie Lennox and Madness all rocked, as did the Pet Shop Boys, Kaiser Chiefs, George Michael, Tinie Tempah and Jessie J. Not to mention K-Hud’s man, Matt Bellamy, who used his awesome guitar skills to great effect. And did we mention there were Morris Dancers too? Amaze!
In the crowd, K-Middy was joined by her fave pal, Prince Harry, while Wills was at work. Convenient. While British legend and former Monty Python star, Eric Idle, closed the show with a rousing rendition of the best tune ever - Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.
Comedy came in the form of traditional British classics, like firing men out of cannons. We love that kind of stuff, we do. While the Union Jack was showcased in black and white, among other shades, throughout the extravaganza.
But it wasn’t all about music, comedy and fun flags. There was also fashion, sweetie.
British catwalk queens Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Lily Cole and Karen Elson took to the stage, looking fabulous, especially Mossy, while history got a nod too as Winston Churchill, played by The King's Speech actor Timothy Spall, stood atop Big Ben reciting lines from Shakespeare.
And there were more treats in store! Russell Brand blasted through the Beatles’ classic I Am The Walrus, while riding atop a psychedelic tour bus. The Pet Shop Boys, riding on rickshaws, performed West End Girls, followed by teen dreams One Direction with their hit What Makes You Beautiful and British singer Annie Lennox belted out Little Bird before Queen's Roger Taylor and Brian May joined Jessie J for the classic anthem We Will Rock You.
If there was ever a doubt in anyone’s mind that Britain’s got talent, last night silenced the critics. We always were, and still are, Cool Britannia. Thanks for the reminder, London!
