Evanescence is full of energy and life. They will bring the place to life and give all the players strength and energy to fight

It would be nice to have a decent rock group sing at a Worldwide known event for once! Evanescence would deliver a fantastic performance!

Seriously they need to perform. Their sense of style is very different towards other artist out there. They will blow your mind!

Evanescence is a successful band. Amy's voice is powerful.

I hope t-ara able to represent asia at the opening ceremony Olympic London
Because they were one big group together also girls generation

I believe T-ara's song can make the crowd sing along and dance along. Their dancing performance and dressing are more decent. Song also acceptable from kids to adult.

T-ara the best forever, the came from a really tiny company and now they are at the top! I guess dreams DO became reality, they worked hard since debut, they haven't had a break since debut (4years ago)! Fighting!
A fan from Tunisia

44Han Geng

Han Geng is the popular Chinese singer & actor. His performance is excellent which can make the opening of the Olympic much more watchable. I highly recommend Han Geng.

If Han Geng is in Top ten he will see his friends again E.L. F born to make them be together in peace.

He is a good model to the young, positive, responsible, hard working!

CNBLUE is the most perfect choice CNBLUE is a very professional band.
They have many abilities and talented. In their song, it has mysterious force to attract people to listen their song and every song of CNBLUE is very nice. They can make everyone who listen their song feel inspiring and exciting. I believe if CNBLUE perform in the Opening, the Olympics will be the most interesting sport game and can make all of spectator fun!

I love CNBlue's music, which can make me high. I wish they can show their music on this stage to the world.

They have the difficult color among so many teams which attract fans to love them. In addition, they work hard day and night. They also said :"Choices make them grow better. So there's no denying that they will become better not only for in return, but also for their own dream

Their music make me happy and give me power to face life. They are best in my heart. They try to make better and work hard.

46The WantedThe Wanted are a British-Irish boy band consisting of members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes.

They are the most talented group of boys I have ever came across. They are so down to earth and care about their fans so much. They would do anything for anything if it meant they were making them happier. They have such amazing songs and they are very good at playing live. They always perform well on stage and put on a mind blowing show. They are the best musical artists in the UK.

They play their own instruments and can entrance an arena with just guitars, a piano and a tambourine. I have seen them live many times and they are just incredible. They have had top ten hits (even number 1s) across the globe and they are about to set off on their American tour. In such a short time they have done more than any other act could without a television show to help promote them. They deserve this so much as they don't know how much they do for people. I've heard many stories from people in person about how they were about to commit suicide but The WANTED had just stopped them. Just by their music. If they find out you are going through a rough patch they tweet you and Direct message you often to check if you are alright. They are from all over the UK from normal backgrounds and have joined together to make thousands of girls and boys happy. They deserve this more than anyone else.

They're known internationally and are a great sign of the talent we have in this country. I think they'd put on a great show as they always have strong live performances, and they'd show how great the UK's music scene is!

They are from all over the UK from normal backgrounds and have joined together to make thousands of girls and boys happy.

47Miley Cyrus

Miley cyrus is the best! She has a powerful voice, her sound carries, and she is often underestimated. I believe it would be an absolute blast if Miley got the chance for this performance.

Miley the best singer and actress in the world!
She have a very amazing song Party in the Usa and When I look at you! Miley helps children in Haiti! I Miley so much!

She's the BEST singer! Her clip Party In The USA for a long time held on the first line of the rating. This means that many people love to listen to Miley Cyrus.

Miley Cyrus is the best ever. I LOVE Taylor Swift and Demi... But she my role model from when I was only 7 years old, and I'm very smiler LOVE Miley FOREVER AND EVER!

48Jessie JJessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.

Jessie J is fun, lively, talented and well known around the country. She gives great performances wherever she is and will have the audience up on their feet! Jessie J is just what the 2012 Olympics needs to start off the show! VOTE JESSIE J!

Jessie J is one of the few artists who sounds better live then on record. She has a powerful voice that was meant to be heard in a giant arena. With a message of hope, a fighting spirit and the heart of a champion, Jessie J embodies the spirit of the Olympics.

Jessie J has once saved my life, I suffer cancer, my sister died of leukemia last year, and I went through a bad time, and as I got to the point I wanted to end my life, I took a huge overdose, then slept for 2 days, when I woke up, hardly able to focus, I put my I-pod on shuffle, led there listening to it, until Jessie J 'who you are' came on, then I sat up, looked at myself, cried, and called an ambulance, I am now finishing my hopefully last session of chemo and things are getting so much better, now every time I feel down, I put her music on. That is just one small reason why people love her so so much, she is so inspiring to all different people, and deserves to perform at London 2012 Olympics. I would give my life to her now, just for her music.

Firstly this is the London olympics that we're talking about so an English singer should perform and jessie j is amazing and I have no idea why she is so low on this list VOTE JESSIE

They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from more.

Beyonce! She's the best! I love her! She did that once and this time I'm sure she'll be on top!

Incredible DIVA! She's the best! Her voice is brilliant, she's so sexy and beautiful! I think she's the only who must be there, one of the greatest entertainers!

She is the best singer, that I've ever heard! Her voice is fascinating. Beyonce is deserving attention. She is worthy of opening London Olympics Ceremonies! DIVA!

The Queen Of R&B! She would slay by singing and dancing at the same time in 10 inches heels!

ARASHI is not only a group or idol group they are like brothers already because of how they show love and care for each other. Their songs also always give us lessons and become our inspirations! We Love ARASHI not only as a group but we love all the members of it!

They're just one of a kind! Even if you're sad and you feel really lonely, they can always make you smile! They're smart, kind, generous, funny and really heart-warming. Every song is a masterpiece and every show deserves to be seen!
The best group ever!

One of arashi member is a newscaster from a well known news show in japan, I'm talking about sakurai sho and news zero. And sakurai has gone numerous time to cover previous Olympics. So it won't be a loss at all to invite arashi to sing at this year Olympics, at least you'll get a performer that know what the show/Olympics is about. Although because they are the main personality of 24hourTV 2012, I guess it'd be hard for their schedule laugh out loud.

Because they have more than just a star, but a spiritual pillar-like existence, all of their works are endless sunshine brings us happiness and virtue, let us go on the road in their life more comfortable. Think they can close. Love them, no reason.

51Meiko Sakine

She is an awesome vocaloid but some people don't like her because she killed Len in the evil series. She realized she was guilty!

Meiko is the first female Japanese singing vocaloid. Meiko sexy, tough, and has the best voice from Vocaloid 1. Her first performance was during 39's day 2012! Listen to her song Change me, It's a really good song, so she has to perform again! I don't want her to seem " forgotten! "

There is a vo loud group. Hatsune Miku, the kagamine twins, kaito, and MEIKO! She has sang songs a little bit, but still, SHE'S IN THE GROUP! I hope they can give her a chance in the top ten before my birthday. I would love to have them ALL sing. P. S my birthdays in July.

The lyrics of their songs are very good and I love real
Is a complete artist, which makes all his songs are very good the motivated and energetic songs. So they would have to sing not just groups that come to light, one of my favorite songs is that I play stand duet with Dido

Oh my good! King of rap in the Olympics! Man that would totally be so cool! I love him so much and how he writes and raps his songs with emotion! I think he would be good--no; GREAT-- in the Olympics Opening!

It would be sweet to see Eminem perform! He is an amazing artist and a very inspiring writer and role model honestly.

Till I collapse will be the best option to play

56Wonder Girls

WONDER GIRLS can't WAIT! WONDER GIRLs started for the girl group. And now they are going to debut in America. And now with their smash hit Be My Baby.

Korea's most famous girl group. They spread their dance craze Tell Me. Their song Nobody is also known worldwide. They are the best! Wonder Girls daebak!

I think that the Wonder Girls should perform at the 2010 London Olympics Ceremony because they are capable of doing it. Just last year, the Wonder Girls performed at the closing ceremony of the "2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games" in Greece. They are now appointed as the "2013 Pyeongchang, South Korea Special Olympics Winter Games Ambassadors. " In South Korea, they are considered as "Korea's Little Sisters" who debuted on February 2007, and led the rise of Korean female groups today. They have won various awards because of their songs. Other than performing in Korea, they also perform in China and Taiwan, and is debuting in the United States on February 2012. In 2009, Wonder Girls made a debut on Billboard Hot 100 at the #76 and became the 1st Korean group to enter the chart. They also performed with the Jonas Brothers at the Jonas Brothers World Tour as the opening act across the US. They were initially asked to perform for 13 concert dates but ...more

They are famous, talented, and already spreading even to America. The Wonder Girls are a wonderful international group that would help promote the Olympics.

58Olly Murs

Olly murs is without a doubt the most amazing male artist and he never fails to put on an awesome performance! He is a true inspiration and if he performs at the Olympics he is sure to become a bigger icon to the nation and find a spot in everyone's heart! Bringing olly to perform at the Olympics will be a massive event no question about it, he's a brilliant dancer and singer and his cheeky smile will honestly cheer anyone up! To conclude I can not think of a better person to perform at the Olympics other than olly murs and it would be a huge mistake to not include him;therefore make olly a part in this and I can guarantee that it will be a true highlight to 2012! Everybody loves our cheeky chappy Essex boy, I don't think there's a fanbase stronger than the Murs army and I can assure you I am totally dedicated to olly and will not let him down by you not letting him perform at this years Olympics 2012! OLLY MURS ALL THE WAY!

Olly is an amazing singer, dancer and entertainer. Everyone should be able to listen to him. He is one in a million and enjoys every minute when performing. He is what Britain is all about. Plus he is seriously good looking. VOTE OLLY!

Olly Murs is an amazing entertainer, and all of his songs can make you feel better. He looks great, he sounds great, he acts great with everybody, and he can always make me and millions of others smile, just by looking at him. He has two albums out at the moment, with many songs that he wrote on them. He can sing well live and deserves more credit, and his smile, and voice should be spread around all countries to bring joy. Unlike other artists, all of his music videos are family friendly. His fans are so strong and I am sure we will all stick together and get Olly to the olympics. He deserves your vote because he is not just a great entertainer, but is an inspiration for everybody unlike other performers who just think of themselves. OLLY MURS ALL THE WAY!

Why is he not in the top 10!? He's amazing! He's gone so far since the X Factor and it would mean so much if he was voted to do this!
