What do The Spice Girls, The Who, Adele, and Eric Idle from Monty Python have in common? We're not sure, and we're also not sure that whoever is in charge of the closing ceremony is sure, but they'll all be performing at tonight's event as London hands over its duties as Olympic host to Rio de Janeiro.
The finale of the Olympics doesn't typically have the pomp of its opening counterpart, but it serves as an opportunity to put a lid on the past two weeks of sports. There will be music and plenty of looks back at the various accomplishments that took place during the London games with an eye towards 2016 in Brazil.
The ceremony will be broadcast via tape-delay on NBC, starting at 8:30 p.m., but unlike the Opening Ceremony, will also be available for live-streaming via NBC's official website after the network's policy of keeping the United States in the dark about what the rest of the world had already seen took criticism. The ceremonies will start at 4 p.m.
