Not sure who was the most out of place performer last night - KISS, Earth Wind & Fire, or the italian fashion models......and it is always good to see Katarina Witt - even with a few extra pounds....

oh and what was with the Dinos and the Osmands - that was completely unneeded and unwanted

Well, I certainly was thinking "What the hell is KISS doing here?"

And man, the sound system either sucked or they were really bad, too. And I like KISS.

So, I vote for KISS as the most of out place, dunk.

The closing ceremonies sucked with the music. I think the only band there that wasn't lip singing was Bon Jovi. WHO KICKS ASS! I think that Christina Aguilara was probably the most out of place there with her little hip hugger out fit. I hope she was freezing her ass off.

Christina Aguilera is a genius and her outfit was AWESOME. I'm sure she was freezing quite a bit less than the Italian model sluts were, parading their boobery on the ice and all.

All closing/opening/halftime/A Very Special ceremonies are train wrecks. They can't help it, it's inherent in the activity. You just _can't_ put on a show that is Deep and Meaningful and Symbolic and Arty and Doesn't Offend Anyone, dig up however many has-beens as possible to perform, and expect the end result to be anything watchable.

But when I saw Earth, Wind and Fire, MY thought process went something like "They got THEM and they couldn't get George Clinton and P-Funk? Nobody called Bootsy? They dug up EW&F, but they couldn't reunite the Mothership? The Olympics have no room for SIR NOSE D'VOIDOFFUNK?"

Given that the Osmonds are from Utah, I don't think they had any choice but to include them.

Personally, I'm still thrilled that they had Robbie Robertson perform at the opening ceremonies.

Uh, the Osmonds are FROM the area (Ogden), and still live in the region (mostly in Orem). They are still very much loved in their home state. Their syndicated talk show a couple years back, which didn't do so well nationally, destroyed pretty much everything in daytime ratings in Salt Lake.

I still popped for KISS, who probably sounded the worst because they didn't appear to be LIP-SYNCHING.
