Who cares if performers are world famous or not? As long as they work for the show, in the moment, that's what matters most. These ceremonies are about cities showing the world the face THEY want

Wow.  You sure have a lot of time on your hands.  Congrats to all the effort you put in but you should've set up a separate folder for all these.  It'll just clutter this folder.  

4 you're missing ...

the strange cauldron in Yokohoma, Japan for the WC 2002 Closing.  Still have not found an explanation for the presence of this cauldron

WC2002_Yoko_cauldron_zpsfmtio5th.jpg 

-  the 2010 Paralympic cauldron in Vancouver was different from the Olympic one (indoor) 

- there's one from the 2011 SEA Games in Jakarta (which the lighter, Susan Susanti, missed when she threw her javelin late, yet the cauldron magically lit up!!); and  

- the Paralympics Armillary Sphere at Stoke-Mandeviile, UK. (2014).  It is a cauldron of sorts.

Wow...that gave me shivers down my spine.  And it wasn't just a guitar solo but it also accompanied a subtle string section. Wow. Just beautiful.

I tried to convince myself not to listen to it to keep the surprise, but I couldn't. I don't think I've ever heard any national anthem performed an beautifully as this, and the crowd matched the mood perfectly.
