  1. Also hoping the cauldron will be just as iconic as 2008 I have a feeling that tall screen thing is where it'll be. Keeping it more secretive than Tokyo.
  2. hoping Milano Cortina 2026 will give us a showstopper at the closing on 20th February. Also hoping the Paralympic ceremony will be better as Tokyo's Paralympic opening ceremony was an improvement over the Olympic ceremony
  3. Praying Paris 2024 leaves poor John Lennon alone and does not play that song AGAIN! After three editions in Asia that have used that song, it's getting old fast.
  4. In all honesty, they should've just installed a temporary roof over the stadium hole if they wanted a 3 hour long show a la Sochi 2014. But eh, I'm waiting for these Games to be over so Paris can give us a real show on the Seine.
  5. I think they're going for the projection floor idea as used in Sochi, Rio, Pyeongchang and Tokyo, as it has been in Olympic ceremonies in recent years.
  6. So we have some information on the Paralympic handover. Prologue by Woodkid makes a return, Sadeck Berrabeh will produce a sequence. There will also be a sign language version of the French anthem performed by Betty Moutoumalaya and the finale will feature music by DJ Pone, founder of the Fonky Family collective. https://press.paris2024.org/news/paris-2024-invites-the-world-to-an-extraordinary-paralympic-handover-celebration-e4cf-7578a.html
  7. Also I would imagine them getting Maneskin, the Eurovision 2021 winners involved buuuut, seeing as two of the male members, Damiano and Thomas kissed each other live on Polish TV (in a country that's becoming anti-LGBT), they could be highly controversial in China if MiCo 2026 chose them to perform.
  8. Tbh, I'd love a symphonic version of Fratelli d'Italia. Paris 2024 really nailed it with the class of their symphonic La Marseillaise. Also Italy loves their classical music so that would be a bonus on the cultural aspect of the handover.
  9. Looks a lot more fun than the Olympic ceremonies! Paralympic ceremonies really have a lot more fun and entertainment than the Olympic ones.
  10. The concepts for the Paralympic ceremonies have been revealed. The opening ceremony concept is "We Have Wings", the concept aims to raise awareness of the courage of Paralympians who are trying to spread their wings "no matter which way the wind blows". And the closing ceremony concept is "Harmonious Cacophony". It acknowledges diversity among people and transforming their differences into a shared unity. Finally, here's a sneak peek at what's to come. Why do I think the propellers are a reference to Doraemon? Maybe he'll make an appearance?
  11. Wait, Yimou's been appointed to do it all again for 2022? Also I could see Valentin Petit (director of the Ride film for the handover) or another well-known French artist or film director being chosen for 2024.
  12. I thought it was cool! Shame that big flag they planned to fly never got a chance to shine. Damn bad weather. But they did the handover and they are ready! Hoping their Paralympic handover will be cool too!
