Its very ethno British. People who don't speak English will have no clue what is being sung or know who the heck the performers are.

Plus not everyone is a rock fan. Surprising they did not have other type of music.

Jessie J sums up everything that is wrong with my country, and specifically the youth of the nation. No talent, rough as, horrific attitude, music gloryfying sex and drugs, and looked up to by millions of kids. Awful.

And John Lennon was responsible for some of the worst music in history, let's not forget that. I hate The Beatles.

Besides that, we're now apparently mocking the deceased (this horrendous cover of the Bee Gees). Thank the Lord for Oasis.

so these games cost 9 billion whereas the u.s. federal reserve has squandered 9 TRILLION and nobody officially has a clue where it went. USA! USA! USA!

Brian Williams is a legend

Absolutely. His voice is synonymous with the Olympics and only he can sum up those 17 days so perfectly.
I was doing fine till the clips of the soccer team in the "I Believe" montage and then I lost it too.

I am so proud of Canada and its athletes. There will be a time to analyze why we didn't win more medals. Now is not that time. Now is the time to celebrate the ones we did win, the ones we almost won, and the ones we tried to win. And I am so proud of Vancouver. The Olympic cauldron will stand by the Waterfront forever, as a tribute to the athletes and to all those who kindled the passion for the Olympics in Canada. To be a part of the legacy means a lot.

Until Sochi and until Rio....I wish all the athletes of the world all the best in their future endeavours.

Congratulations to the Canadian athletes, you did us proud. Around the time when the Olympics come is when I am proudest to be Canadian. I wish us success in training for the 2014 Winter Olympics and 2016 Summer Olympics and hope we succeed at Sochi and Rio

Stephen Brunt is possibly the best sports journalist in the world at this moment. Williams is an announcer.
