I love George. Absolutely and unconditionally. If I win Euromillions I am going to pay him to walk next to me for the rest of my life, singing to me.

I'm also partial to a bit of George. But....
a) what was the second song he sang ???
b) he can't dance

And surely the purpose of Macca at the closing ceremony was to empty the stadium as quickly as possible?

Watching the Kaiser Chiefs, and that's almost exactly how I dressed thirty years ago! Good version of Pinball Wizard mind. .

His new song, White Light. R2 play it a lot. It's not my favourite.

Yeah, I liked that.

They're making great use of those LED pixel things.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Oh Please no. (Annie Lennox gets wheeled out as much a Sir Paul - being a nashnul institushon and whatnot. Has she actually recorded anything in twenty five years?)

Don't listen! I'm watching it via what is said on here and twitter - it's quieter and probably just as clear! :)

It's all a bit "dad-rock".

It's the visual equivalent of one of those old "Top of the Pops!" cover albums.

Is Norman Cook actually doing anything, or are we reduced to the level of a DJ miming?

Giant octopus type thing, it's like the thing from the Watchmen! (comic)

Ever since the Jubilee concert, there's been a running joke on social media about how the next act would be Russ Abbott's Atmosphere, I finally googled it on youtube, and noticed that Russ Abbott rides a bickerton. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFPLk5mJ1D4
