What are those cups the gals are carrying?? To collect tips?? :lol:

Just wrote that above. Those are flower petals made of steel. Each team was given one. And those petals will later play a role in the cauldron lighting, according to the German commentator.

You seem to have been on a downer from the beginning so to me your opinion does not count.

No I have not you can go back and see where I posted good positive things. But majority of people agree here. So shut it.

Just logged in. Loving this; really, really loving it. Only bit I was unsure about was the weird cuts aways to Rugby tries in the opening segment.

But it's been funny, eipc, warm and very British. So proud of my country now!

For whom did they boo? I didn't notice it, because I was too occupied with those steel petals forming the cauldron. ;)

Soooo this has been the Closing Ceremony , when do we get to the Opening????

Loving the show as a show, but this is (and I hate sounding like a teenage girl) soooo random.

I was waiting for an epic end to the *cultural show* - something that screamed *LONDON*, but we got a man sitting at a desk infront of a pc.

Yeah, all the segments are fantastic in their own right, but they have picked stuff from everywhere.

I've loved all the incidental moments, the parts that remind me why I view London as the Greatest City in the World and why I loved my time there so much, but Im not so sure.

You can definitely tell it's a ceremony designed by a film director.

The stadium looks stunning in *blue mode* , the design work is fantastic.

Liking the nice twist they have got for most of the dancing , it's not kitch but quite cool (like the men in top hat movements).

Beautiful depiction of the rings, but quite a low key start to the ceremony,

Nice Athens feel to the athletes march.
