Sir Elton John will send the Olympics out rockin'

The Olympic Games Closing Ceremony airs Sunday night at 7 p.m. ET on NBC, but the details of the festivities have largely remained a secret. However, never fear because we have looked everywhere and here is what we learned about the end of the Games from The Telegraph.

"A Symphony of British Music"—that should give us a big-time clue. The man in charge is artistic director Kim Gavin and his impressive musical background should make the show one for the ages.  

Look for the closing of the Olympics to go out with plenty of great music. The English are proud of their many contributions in the world of music and indications are that it will be a true British celebration of rock and roll to send the Games out on a high note.

Per The Telegraph, we should expect to see Sir Elton John, who has worked with Gavin many times and was not featured in the opening of the Olympics. The Spice Girls might reunite for a special performance, although personally, I hope that is just a rumor.

There are two big acts that everyone wants to see and Gavin has worked them both before. That means The Who, The Rolling Stones and Adele could possibly be a part of the ceremonies. Adele remains one of the most popular pop stars in the world and it is hard to picture a Closing Ceremony that would not include her distinctive voice.

While we'll have to wait to find out the exact list of performers, we do know that the 2012 London Olympic Games will go out rockin’ the world.
