Music Artists You'd Like to Perform at the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremonies

The Contenders: Page 12XW

221Joe McElderry

Joe is an exceptional talent of the likes that the UK has not seen in decades. Joe represents all that is good about the UK at the moment. He is talented with a capital T. Joe is a beautiful person inside & out & has a lovely caring nature. This was shown at it's best when Joe organized a concert on the ward of his local Teenage Cancer hospital, to which he is an Ambassador. This concert was shown in wards across the country. Joe had a bad throat that day but was determined to go ahead with the day, as he did not want to let the sick teenagers down. Joe also ran in last years GNR for the charity & is also running this year too. Joe's note perfect rendition of anything he sings makes him a perfect choice to sing at the Olympics. I had the great pleasure of hearing Joe sing Nessun Dorma live, It was spine tingling & reduced be to tears. Joe would be my ultimate choice to sing for the 2012 Olympics

Joe has a strong and natural quality to his note perfect beautiful voice. He sings with so much emotion, and has a smile that will light up the skies. Here is a young man who is an inspiration to all ages with his kind and humble spirit, and the superior quality of his voice is uplifting and touches your heart. Joe's kind and charitable ways are demonstrated by the fact he is an Ambassador for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Since Joe is a dedicated runner, always maintains a strong work ethic and positive attitude, has the voice of an angel that can sing anything, I believe Joe, at the young age of 20, is very worthy of the proud distinction of representing his country with a voice that will truly mesmerize the onlooking world! Deane

Joe McElderry is a fine example of a kind young man of today in giving hours of his time to young people with the debilitating condition of Cancer and has been awarded to be ambassador for the Teenage Cancer Trust in Newcastle where he brings pleasure to them with his beautiful singing voice and also running for the charity TCT during the GNR half marathon he is a true inspiration of young people today.

With the purity that this guy represents in so many ways, he would be an ideal person to sing and demonstrate the best of British talent at the Olympic Games. An ideal role model for so many, the definition of tolerance and understanding, a champion of those with life challenges, a better person could not be found.

Even though they didn't debut yet they're amazing based on their performances and teasers

Although not debuted yet, they're teasers and short appearances on stage is amazing they will be out by the Olympics start though!

A new guy group from SMent! They haven't debuted YET, but I can guarantee that they will be a hit!

Latest boy group from SM entertainment, the same company Super Junior, SNSD, TVXQ, BoA, F(x) is under. Consists of 12 members divided into two groups, Exo K and Exo M having 6 members in each group respectively. Exo "K" stands for "Korean" while "M" stands for Mandarin.

223Michael Ball

Michael has an incredible voice, the power, the emotion, to carry all before him - the Olympic Spirit would soar above all the troubles surrounding the world today, and hopefully encourage a feeling of unity. That's what it should be about, as well as recognizing the achievements, of the individuals, and their dedication to their sport.

Michael Ball has represented the UK in many international musical events and has been hailed in the New York stage as well ( Broadway and New York City Opera). He is arguably the leading musical theatre star in the UK and has also graced The Proms in his own concert! Wonderful voice and amazing stage presence! No one can represent the UK better than Mr. Ball!

If you want a voice to fill the stadium and show off the best of London, Michael Ball is it. Powerful, appealing and a born entertainer.

No one else has the voice to do this! Sings with so much passion and intensity he's got to do it. Also, he's sung before huge crowds before, so would be a brilliant choice.

Gwen is an angel among humans. She is literally the epitome of perfection. Her performance would leave the audience so stunned by her sheer beauty, they wouldn't even remember they were at the Olympics.

226Mumford & SonsMumford & Sons are a British rock band from London, formed in 2007. The band consists of Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall and Ted Dwane.

A great up and coming British band that will be able to play friendly music for the world to listen to, while also playing music that not everyone hears every single day.

237Jane Zhang

Because she sings song very well and she share her own special skill to the people I love her very much

Good voice and powerful word hard lovely strong power in music

Jane Zhang is not only young and beautiful but vibrant and energetic. Sweet and lovable, her versatile voices of big range from her heart reach deep into ones' inner soul with much feeling and emotion. Her gracious dance movement will help sway many others to follow. Besides Chinese, the talented and hard working Jane Zhang also sings in English, Spanish, French and Japanese. She has won the "Best Female Singer in Mainland China" Award for 5 consecutive years from 2006 till 2010 in the Chinese Billboard and is expected to do the same for 2011 which will be announced shortly on 19 January 2012. She is most probably the only Chinese singer that had appeared on Opray Winfrey Show. She deserves to be in the world arena besides China. In short, Jane Zhang deserves to be one of the singers in London Olympic Games 2012

She is the princess who has a gentle voice. She is the first singer who took part in Opera Talk Show and showed her talent of singing. So I sincerely hope that people can vote for her! - guixinchen

239Rhydian RobertsRhydian James Roberts, known as Rhydian, is a classically trained Welsh baritone singer, musical theatre actor and television presenter.

Rhydian is a rising star with masses of charisma and stage presence, combined with a splendid baritone voice. He has spent four years developing his appeal with widening experiences. He is very patriotic and loyal to his country and, no doubt, the whole of the UK. He gives unstintingly of his time taking part in concerts to support Charities and truly deserves to be given the honour of using his powerful voice to support the Olympics. We need a singer with wide appeal and whose pride in his country is evident in his powerful performances. We need someone who can vocally display OUR pride in OUR country and is British through and through. Rhydian Roberts is the person to represent us, the wider public. - ChrisJ

Rhydian Roberts has a powerful and fantastic voice and would be the ideal choice for the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games 2012. He has sung at many sporting events, recently at Wembley Stadium, and always gets an outstanding welcome. His voice fills the arena, and whats more he's British!

If we want to show to, and share with, the world, what's great about Britain - you don't get better than this. A voice to blow your socks off, a stage presence and performance crafted over the past 4 years and a genuine, non-diva star.

Such an entertainer and a perfect voice for such an event. He's British and whether you are a fan or not everyone who sees him perform says it's just phenomenal!

240Show Luo

He is one of Asia's top idols and currently singing in Japanese and mandarin. He isn't just a singer though, he also has amazing acting and hosting skills. He deserves to open the Olympic games.

He is absolutely awesome. He is the best in the entertainment industry! There is a reason why his name is Show because he puts on awesome shows! To have the time of your life... VOTE FOR HIM!

He is always behaving enthusiastically on stage. He is not only a singer, dancer, entertainment programme host, but also a skilled actor. Now, Show's fans are widely spread around the world, and he himself is one of the top idols. I'm sure he won't let us down. Count on him!

You will not regret having him as an artist for opening as he is capable of bringing the atmosphere to its highest with his well known dance songs. There is not a doubt why he is called Asia Dance King.
