The closing ceremony is pretty good. Im enjoying all the acts in it so far. Annie Lennox is a nice surprise but cant wait to see the Spice Girls, just to see if Ginger wears that Union Jack dress and has them out :lol:

No it was choreographed by artistic director Kim Gavin. Its suppsed to be more low key than the opening ceremony, but i prefer it a lot more.

Did the God-like Genius that is Noel Gallagher make an appearance? or any of the Oasis lads?

I know they were rumored to be doing something but I never followed up to see if anything came of it.

I didn't give a damn about the Olympics at all, until i went to Amsterdam. Kinda fun to watch when you're surrounded by soft drugs.
