The London Olympics closing ceremony is just around the corner and expectation is building up around the expected performers as the clock strikes to signal the end of the 2012 Olympics.
The opening ceremony of the London Olympics had the queen, with Daniel Craig as James Bond as her escort, as the two parachuted into Olympic Stadium. The opening ceremony was nearly five hours of continuous music and was directed by Danny Boyle ('Slumdog Millionaire" director), and Sunday's show will be shorter but also packed with song, according to reports.
The title of the event "A Symphony of British Music" hints to the extensive line up of musicians that we can expect will perform this Sunday, Aug. 12.
The Olympics closing ceremony will be directed by Kim Gavin. Details of the ceremony has been kept under wraps, just like it was with the opening ceremony apart from some details that confirmed to an UK publication via an anonymous source.
The closing ceremony will air in on NBC in prime time on Sunday from 7 to 10:38 p.m. EST. It will not be broadcasted live so what you can expect is an edited version, just like how NBC aired the opening ceremony.
The ceremony will also be a great celebration for the U.S. team as the nation is leading the gold medal count with 41 gold medals, 4 more than its closest rival, China.
Here is the list of artists that will be performing at the Olympics closing ceremony on Aug. 12:
The Spice Girls
Ed Sheeran with members of Pink Floyd
