    Any sightings of our boy? I want to see him in his beret :lol:

    I can't hold my eyes open anymore, so I will be watching the remainder in the morning.

    I saw he tweeted a picture of him on some sweet plane so I think he went home early? He tweeted it like 16 hours ago so I don't think he stayed for the closing ceremonies.

    Yeah, Lochte didn't stay for the closing.

    I'm disappointed that Elton John didn't perform!

    Annie Lennox rocked the house, but how on Earth did the Pet Shop Boys manage such a lackluster performance? They are always the best at huge, multimedia spectacles.

    I watched the closing with BF, which gave me free reign to sing along at the top of my lungs :p. Of course he made fun of me the whole time, though. ("Hey, Mike." "Yeah?" "Your gay is showing." "Shut up and dance or we're over.")

    My mom was obsessed with the Spice Girls when I was little, so I grew up with them. Last night I realized how much I missed them!

    When I hear Spice Girls I think of Chicken Little movie when they are singing it...Love Steve Zahn the pig's voice in Chicken Little!!!

    As soon as they started singing I was up singing and dancing with them. My daughter was a little embarrassed!

    monsieur~WHEN??! I didn't see them! Oh, if NBC skipped them I'm going to be MAD!

    You know that I love you, all of my American friends. However, I was not happy to be in the U.S. during the closing ceremony--having to wait until 8:30 pm to watch when it aired live here at home.

    It was replayed on tape delay during prime time, but ran live on at least 2 networks.
