    Tinie Tempah, Taio Cruz and One Direction? Dear Lord, I certainly shan't be watching avidly if this is the case.

    Thing is, if we make the closing ceremony so atrocious, people may decide to never watch the Olympics ever again, causing the IOC to stop. Then we can say we held the Ultimate Olympics

    Depends what time it's on. They could have that bit at the end so it's after midnight.

    "An estimated 300 performers will take part in a routine based on the capital’s rush hour, with cars, scooters and bicycles hurrying around the main stage while lollipop ladies direct the tooting traffic and road workers drill the pavements.
    Then, to a potentially controversial Full Monty-style rendition of the National Anthem, the performers will strip off their costumes – the lollipop ladies will reveal Union Jack-themed swimsuits, while the commuters and road workers will be in similarly patriotic bodysuits and other outfits"

    They're still terrible, just a manufactured boy band aimed at exploiting the teenage girls market. A bit like Justin Bieber.
