Olympics closing ceremony: Spice Girls, George Michael and more

British music royalty light up London in psychedelic farewell to games


With a little British pomp and a lot of British pop, London
brought the curtain down on a glorious Olympic Games on Sunday in a
spectacular, technicolor pageant of landmarks, lightshows and lots
of fun.

The closing ceremony offered a sensory
blast including rock ‘n’ roll rickshaws, dustbin percussionists, an
exploding yellow car and a marching band in red tunics and bearskin

It was all delivered in a psychedelic mashup that had 80,000 fans at
Olympic Stadium stomping, cheering and singing along. Organizers
estimated 300 million or more were watching around the world.
