Report Closing Ceremony in London 2012 Ceremonies Discussions Posted August 13, 2012 I had to wake up at 5am this morning to watch the ceremony and even got to work late... do I regret it..... NOPE!!! I LOVED IT!!! While Sydney 2000 will always hold a special place in my heart, London's Closing was AWESOME!!! All the songs were great, I loved Emeli's performance, the Spice Girls were great too IMO and I was genuinely sad to see the flame go out. I didn't get the fire-bird segment, but the ballet dancers were interesting. Eric Idle's segment was hilarious and I loved the Giant Inflatable Octopus that came out during Fat Boy Slim's performance. Also, was a surprise to see BOND during Russell Brand's part. Bit strange for me seeing Take That, without Robbie Williams.... but all in all, great performances.... Well Done London!!!
