for me the opening 100%

loved it. the spectacle, the frankly batshit insanity. Closing was far more traditonal, however any ceremony that includes a 30ft see through plastic octopus with a DJ in its head cant be ALL bad. Unlike Liam Gallaher.
This space for Hire! Reasonable rates. Reach an audience of literally dozens!

Why was Gallagher there? It seemed to me that he tried to ruin Wonderwall by singing it through his nose.

Jessie J singing Money in a convertible Roller wasn't exactly clever, and George should have stuck to his older songs.

What I saw of the closing ceremony was excellent, didn't see the opening.

Thats how he always sang everything. Cannot stand him, never could. I'd like to punch him in the face.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

It'll be much easier if you just comply.
