Democratic? North Korea? LOL, this time it's their fault we have wrong graphics on our screens!

Brace yourselves, folks - the German commentator just said something about the cauldron lighting. He said that those boys to the left of the flagbearers carry flower petals made of steel. And he said that those petals (one for each team) will play a role later in the cauldron lighting!

Was going to ask if anyone knew what they were carrying.

Ok, so far It's been mixed for me. I've loved most of it. I like there were so many whimsical moments. Not so much the more serious parts. Very much staged more for TV than live I expect. But then again, the atmosphere is probably charged in the stadium.

Bond and Bean were the moments for me. And quite liked the pop culture parts.

The placards are really the cheapest-looking I have ever seen in an opening ceremony. And the dresses of the girls are equally underwhelming.

But now, the real stars apparently are those "steel petal" girls and boys. I don't believe it! They will make a cauldron out of parts from all nations participating in the Games! I suppose it will truly be a great moment!
