Writing Prompt: Olympics Closing Ceremony

London2012The Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games will be titled “A Symphony of British Music.” While the details of the August 12th spectacle are still being kept super-secret, the organizers have said that they ”will work with some of the country’s most globally successful musicians, along with some of the industry’s stars of tomorrow.” There are TONS of rumors flying around – One Direction? Jessie J? QUEEN?

Sounds AWESOME!

Personally, I would be excited to see the John Lennon tribute and Take That’s performance of “Rule the World,” my favorite song of all time (I really hope The Wanted make an appearance, too; I’m a huge fan)! Darcy Bussell, the famous British ballerina, will be dancing with 300 other members of the Royal Ballet in a grand performance while the Olympic torch is put out. I can’t wait for that, either!

So, I want to know. What rumors are you hoping are true? More importantly, what’s YOUR dream lineup? Would you have a laser light show, flying acrobats, holograms, colored mist, fireworks? Share your Closing Ceremony wishlist in the Comments below!

    I would love to see Coldplay perform. They are an awesome band, and they’re British, too! I would also love some Beatles stuff.

    One Direction, some sort of tribute to the Beatles, and maybe Rowan Atkinson (funny guy at the piano in the opening ceremony). And some cool fireworks at the end.

    2. A ribbon dance
    3. I liked seeing the Olympic rings come together to form the logo thingy, so I’d like it to be in the Closing Ceremony
