The Contenders: Page 6XW


They are not only famous in Korea but now they are rising new top girls' group in all over Asia. If London Olympics would really like to make the event as a world event, they sure should invite singers from different parts of the world including Asia too. Kara would be perfect to join the event as a representative of Asia.

Kara is the best
KARA is a great korean girl group
They are also a big hit in JAPAN, they are the most popular Korean Artist in Japan, and their last japanese album "Super Girl" was top 5 the most sale album in the world. They sale 600000 copies in one months.
They have a lot of fans all around the world.
They have great personalities and they deserve to be there.

.. KARA is the best representative for Korea... And they really know how to cheer everybody up.. Fighting! ..

I've always loved kara and I never stop listening to their music. They are the only group that I have ever loved this much!

102KaitoKAITO is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Yamaha Corporation using their new Vocaloid singing synthesizer technology under the codename of "Taro".

Who wouldn't want an ice cream loving 20 year old? He sings about rainbows and other random things. Who wouldn't want him?

KAITO is such an inspiration. Even if 'he' doesn't exist, at one point his sales weren't so good, but eventually he got to the point he's at today: A large fandom and rabid fangirls!

Kaito would be a pleasure to have there at the summer Olympics who wants to hear one of the best songs kaito Shion has

103Hatsune Miku and Kagamine Rin and Len

Because they would sound really good together and all three are really famous to a lot of people and it would not cause arguments about if only one of them wins so Miku fans and Rin and Len fans alike will be happy with it if they win and if not people can still be happy all three could have done an amazing trio performance.

I'm a very big fan of vocaloid and it would be very cool if they sing together

I love this idea. It would be wonderful if they sang and hey, they wouldn't mess up. They sound wonderful, too!

Rin kagamine and len kagamine are awesome you should have seem uphappy refrain.

They are very talented, kind hearted, take part in lots of charity events. Also, they are very active and encourage people to get up and start dancing, and there is nothing not to like about them

They are truly amazing dancers and inspire people to chase their dreams and make you want to get up and dance. I love them so much and they deserve this!

Diversity are AMAZING. And they represent the range of British people. And they support sport and exercise, especially in young people, which is what the Olympic games is trying to encourage.

WOO! Diversity for the win! Never seen anything so cool! And just to say the reason I am writing this much is so I can get full green

111Red Hot Chili PeppersThe Red Hot Chili Peppers is a Californian funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. more.

A live band that leaves you totally excited and their music is turned thereby jump and scream like crazy, and deserves a lot of votes

I really think that the Red Hot Chili Peppers should be on the opening of the olympic games for two reasons, they are one of the famous around the world and when you listen them playing live, they rock so hard that you can smell your brain as it melts.

KAT-TUN should totally perform~! They are awesome and inspirational! They are know worldwide and are a unique group of idols with different talents and personalities.

Best band in the world. Period.
Best music in the world. Period.
The best

114Joe 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.

How can people forget about these five? They deserve to be better known worldwide they are known in Asia the most but they have a huge worldwide fan base they deserve to be known by other countries worldwide.

P.S Azu-nyan for the win!

They are awesome! I just love the way they play their instruments! & Well I don't Mind Who Gets to Sing, & I would love to see anyone sing! Why not maybe the Top 3 or 2 most wanted singers to sing at the Olympics? Well it's my opinion,.. So maybe its sort of fair for the K-pop fans..

116Kelly Clarkson

She is the greatest voice of pop nowadays! She should sing in the Opening Ceremonies! She deserve it! Best singer! And she is with a new album in the stores now! STRONGER!

She's the original national idol of America and has the best voice in the world of pop music. She'll also go great in representing the voice of the English-speaking world. Does best when paired with co-idol Will Young. :-)

She has just released an album, and sings very well live, and deserves be at this event

The best singer ever! All the qualities in her, the best voice and she's so sweet! If you want to hear real music, is she!

Looking at how Jennifer Lopez is working on stage during concerts or performances, charging some sort of special energy. Its great dancing and great voice make you dance and get udovolsvie from this... And you want to make this never ends! In my opinion, Jennifer - the best singer and dancer of our time...

She's wonderful and surep star! Her song "On the floor" would be one of the number one hit at the Olympics! ;)

118Queen with Adam Lambert

Queen Adam Lambert Best Performance Ever!

Queen and Adam performed at the 2011 EMA. It was the most magical performance of the last 20 years. Queen still showed their genius musical talent and Adam well is the new vocal prodigy of the 21st Century. Absolutely fantastic. Adam fit like a smooth velvet glove with Queen. Perfection

Laugh out loud! Who seriously said Queen without Adam Lambert? There will never be another Freddie Mercury but in terms of vocals, performance skills, stage presence and charisma, Adam Lambert is the closest living artist to the great man. After seeing the EMAs performance, it's almost impossible to envisage anyone else filling Freddie's shoes.

Even though I think you need all the members to call Queen who they really are, I think this would have been awesome to see. Maybe not Adam but maybe Paul Rodgers.

119U2U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, the group consists of Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. U2's early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group's musical pursuits, they have more.

U2 of course! They are the greatest rock band in the world... What they reached the past 35years is unbelievable! The best live band, their360tour was amazing! So it's nothing more then normal that they are the best possible band to do this... U2... UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD!

They hold the record for most attended tour of all time! Over 7 mill. No one else comes close to that record

U2 is the best band in the world!
U2 is the most important band actually, they have been in the music for 35 years, they represent what the Olympic games are supposed to be the friendship. "We are ONE but we are not the same we got to carry each other" and they are a rock band interested in the people, so I hope they open the Olympics

Greatest band of all time!

120L'Arc-en-CielL'Arc-en-Ciel is a Japanese rock band, founded in Osaka in 1991. With a reported 40 million records sold, they were the first Japanese act to headline at Madison Square Garden.

Vote for L'arc~en~ciel, they have such beautiful music that not only Japan has the luck to hear, around the world I know there are fans as me that will agree that they must sing at the Olympics. If they have London, why don't have a little Japan?

One of my favorite bands from Japan. Hope to see them perform live.

The best band ever from Japan! Love their totality at music and very attractive in live and concert. They will be held world tour. Hope Indonesia can include

L'arc en ciel is the best band ever! They can make their audience sing and dance together with them, they must sing at Olympic
