Britain is planning on ending the 2012 Olympic ceremony with a bang. The closing ceremony is expected to pay tribute to the music created by artists old and new that celebrate the British culture and the influence it has had on the music world. Artists ranging from Paul McCartney to the Spice Girls are expected to take part in the ceremony. One of the newest music sensations worldwide, Adele, is expected to participate in the ceremony as well.
Adele has started off the year with a positive start, winning six Grammy’s and two BRIT awards already. The years has just begun, so there is bound to be a handful of awards still to come her way.Therefore, performing at the Olympics will be one more thing she can take off her bucket list. The singer also recently announced that she plans to take a few years off. Hopefully before she goes into hiding she can take part in this one in a lifetime experience.
Stephen Daldry, the executive producer of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic opening and closing performances said “It is, in a sense, the soundtrack of our lives.” Britain has produced a number of superstars, and it will be interesting to see all of them united for a spectacular performance at this year’s Olympics. The last summer Olympic Games were held in China. There the country made sure to show athletes from around the world a part of their culture. Everything from the opening ceremony to the closing ceremony was over the top. Surely Britain has taken note, and plans to leave viewers with a memorable performance from start to finish.
