Vancouver 2010 Closing Ceremony, a slight disappointment
The three hour Vancouver 2010 closing ceremony show included performances by Mime Yves Dagenais, Le May Doan and the rendition of the Olympic hymn by famous Canadian tenor Ben Hepner.

THE OLYMPICS Closing Ceremony didn’t quite live up to the expectations, according to a number of sports journalists, but all in all, it was entertaining. The three hour show included performances by Mime Yves Dagenais, Le May Doan and the rendition of the Olympic hymn by famous Canadian tenor Ben Hepner.

Joannie Rochette, the figure skating bronze-medallist was selected for carrying the Canadian flag across the stadium while the poignant speech of John Furlong was greeted by a rousing ovation by 60,000 spectators. It was followed by performances by Nickelback, Neil Young, Alanis Morissette and Avril Lavigne.

However, the topping of the cake was provided by the Russians, who are incidentally the hosts for 2014 Winter Olympics. Some spectacular dances from Bolshoi and Kirov ballets and Valery Gergiev’s live orchestra via satellite added a rich cultural dimension to the closing ceremony.

The ceremony ended with rap group K-os, along with some thumping music and a host of break dancers.
