The Who, Spice Girls, and Many More to Perform at Closing Ceremonies
Organizers of today's closing ceremonies of the London Olympics vow it will be ``the best after-show party of all time.''
The extravaganza, which starts at 4 p-m E-T, is called the ``Symphony of British Music'' from Sir Edward Elgar to such pop acts as The Who, Annie Lennox, The Spice Girls, and George Michael.
Music director David Arnold says the star-studded event will be ``cheeky, cheesy, and thrilling.''
Meanwhile, Christine Sinclair will carry Canada's flag at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics.
Sinclair was chosen after leading the women's soccer team to a bronze medal. It was the first medal for Canada in a traditional team sport since 1936.
Sinclair was the popular choice after scoring an Olympic-record six goals in the women's tournament. The Burnaby, B.C., native scored three goals during an emotional 4-3 semifinal loss to the United States.
Sinclair previously carried the flag during the opening ceremonies of the Pan American Games last fall in Mexico.
