In a way I can see it from both sides...some bits were good like the Jessie J & Queen version of "We will rock you". But other bits were awful like bringing the Spice Girls back, they couldn't sing before and they definitely can't sing now! If they had to appear, they could at least have made Geri wear her Union Jack dress, although Bo Jo's "dancing" made me smile. For me the only thing missing was the "Borismaster" the new London Bus.
I can't believe One Direction got (quite a long) spot towards the start of the ceremony. Absolute talentless idiots put together by the puppet master Simon Cowell. They even mimed to the song they had no input in writing! Disgrace to British music.
I didn't actualkly watch the ceremony because I was in class, but the line up seemed to go from musical greats to greatly overrated and everything in between. The line up of junk artists (One Direction etc) is actually what makes me not want to see it at all.
I thought it was great. The opening ceremony was fantastic and left such a high bar. But the closing was perfectly cheesy and it was great to see all the cameos. I enjoyed it thoroughly and thought London did a wonderful job all up. You guys all should be proud - ignore the cynics. I'm sad I couldn't be there to enjoy it with you all in such a beautiful city.
