The 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony will finally close out this year’s Games with a huge bash on Sunday night, bringing an end to the endless television coverage and letting everyone get back to watching America’s Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance.

The 2012 Olympics have been fun to watch, with some truly brilliant moments, but at this point I’m just ready to get back to some plain, stupid reality TV fun. Too much drama, heartache, pain and stunted growth freakish body shapes due to over-training since you were 3-years-old. Maybe that’s just me though. I really only watch gymnastics and swimming, so I can’t say I’m the biggest Olympics fan.

The 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony will air on NBC Sunday night and feature a horde of famous faces giving the massive crowds one last thrill. Performers for the Olympics Closing will include One Direction (did I hear tweens screaming?), Spice Girls, Muse, Madness, George Michael, Take That, and The Who. Also participating will be such luminaries as Queen with Brian May, Pet Shop Boys, and Russell Brand.

Expect some surprise guests as well. Rumors of who might also pop in for the Olympics 2012 Closing Ceremony include performers such as Elton John, Adele, Kate Bush, members of Pink Floyd, and Paul McCartney contributing to the event.

“It’s going to be beautiful, cheeky, cheesy, camp, silly and thrilling,” David Arnold, music director of the Olympics Closing Ceremony told the U.K. Telegraph.

The 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony will begin at 2100 local time in the UK, and a slew of us will no doubt be watching it on the Internet since NBC has no intention of airing it live. They will start airing it in the U.S. at 7PM. One of those reasons the #NBCFail hashtag is still running strong.

The 2016 summer Olympics will be held in Rio De Janeiro; the first time the Olympics have taken place in South America.
