Music Artists You'd Like to Perform at the 2014 Sochi Olympics Opening CeremoniesDISCLAIMER: this list is in no way official. There is little chance, unfortunately, that the Olympics committee would view, let alone, consider, this list for their opening ceremonies performers selections.
Let's plan ahead, y'all! The more recent 2012 poll results shifted, a lot, and by that time, planning was finished and sealed for the opening ceremony. Hopefully, at this point, perhaps we can build up interest and solidify our input before final decisions are made. You've voted for the artists you wanted to see, but unfortunately, it didn't carry through. With a good 1 1/2-year start, perhaps that can change!
Please, no proxies, no multiple-browser voting, no voting more than once WHATSOEVER. A truly quantified gauge rather than a clicking contest would be refreshing. Please keep that in mind.
The Top Ten
They're both incredible vocaloids who have as much ability and potential compared to any other singer I have ever heard. I believe that the two of them performing can change how other's view music by showing the world what they're capable of. Every night before I go to bed I always plug my headphones into my IPAD and listen to their music. No matter how bad of a day I have they always seem to cheer me up. Their smiling faces (sometimes frowning or crying) give me an empathetic feelin that always brightens my mood. So let's vote for these two talented vocaloids, and perhaps they can change the world of music!
Ps, perhaps I like Rin a little bit more than I should
They were created as the second Vocaloid2 voice program, as the mirror image singers from the future. Since then, they have amassed even more fans the Hatsune Miku. Their songs have the most depth, and they would be perfect for the Olympics. By the way, they can sing other languages just as well as Miku.
Many people bust on them because they're not real, that they can never sing as well as humans. With just a little hard work, they can easily be mistaken for humans. Also, many new Vocaloid fans just follow Miku because the Kagamines seem to be for "veteran Vocaloid fans". They are just as good for beginners as Miku. They will be the first 3D holograms to sing!
Think about the Kagamines... Yea that's what I thought... OTHER CRYPTON VOCALOIDS NEED MORE LOVE! Like I hate it when people hate on vocaloids cause they're not real. Do they sound real? YES! Are they're songs great? YES YES! RIN AND LEN? YES YES YES! American Pop these days stinks cause they all talk about the same thing OVER and OVER again. Maybe synthesizer programs should get on stage and sing... So yep I want vocaloids this time and not boring American Pop singers. Why I chose Rin and Len over miku/everyone else is because they probably have one of the most unique voices of all vocaloids! (LEN! ) I just think they should get more attention. Great songs, adorable, (RIN! ) and they're songs are about daily life things... Lost destination, Abstract Nonsense, Daughter/Servant of evil, (Well if you think about its real life. ) and many other songs! HORRAY FOR RIN AND LEN! (Plus the others... ) As long as Lens fangirl song doesn't start playing we should have a great olympics! ( Lens ...more
A lot of people bash on Miku because they say she isn't "REAL". Well in my opinion, what makes her just as "REAL" as other singers is her ability to touch the hearts of her fans. And I'm one of those fans. Ever since I first heard her sing, all I've listened to is her music. I feel that when she sings, she sounds like she's putting just as much emotion into her music as any other singer. She has an incredible singing voice and appeals to a wide audience of people; from young children to adults. Anyone could enjoy her music. If anyone has the potential to change the future it's her. COME ON FELLOW MIKU FANS! LET'S VOTE FOR HER AND HELP HER CHANGE THE WORLD!
WKO signing out and helping spread the word; like you should be doing.
The most common reason that Vocaloids are looked down upon is because that they are not "real" and sound so "artificial". Well, the thing is, music itself is artificial. Non-artificial music is just noise. So what if Vocaloids are not real people? What matters is that their music is real and can be heard and enjoyed by people all over the world. We are also fortunate to have so many talented artists providing us with visual presentations of the Vocaloids in forms of drawings and videos, what more do we need? Miku and all the other Vocaloids represent the immense power of music. The power to spread joy and happiness and bring people all around the world together, regardless of race or gender. This is also the essence of the Olympic spirit. Therefore Miku would be a perfect choice to perform at the Olympic opening ceremony, no other human singers could represent the Olympic spirit better than Miku, or any other Vocaloids. Don't be so judgmental about the form the music is presented in, ...more
I see nothing wrong with Hatsune Miku (technically all Vocaloid in general) performing at the Olympics. Miku has fans around the world and her songs (all Vocaloid songs technically) are also made by her fans. Song writers around the globe work hard to make these songs for other fans around the world to enjoy. The Olympics is an event where people around the world gather together for athletic competition, and Vocaloid and Hatsune Miku is an icon in music that brings people together through music.
"Music is something you enjoy. Regardless or not if the singer in question is real or fantasy. That's why everyone can enjoy it. " Hatsune Miku and Vocaloid is essentially the embodiment of this quote.
What makes Hatsune Miku number one on this list she has the ability to touch peoples hearts from poor people who don't have any money to rich people who can buy almost anything other singers don't have that ability Hatsune miku has been famous for years everwere around the world fans support her The music industry leaders in america and UK don't really know or care about her because shes not real Hatsune miku fans need to open up and spread the word of hatsune miku from the internet and the real world so hatsune miku and other vocaliod can be on the radio and other music networks Hatsune miku is only about music not ANIME even most of her fans watch anime were not crazy like Justin Bieber fans and one direction fans who bash on any any one who hate them we are peaceful fans who want to make you life better and show the world of hatsune miku If any one threaten to attack us for real we have the power of most of the internet on our side since the save miku campaign we grew even more and ...more
Why would you only vote for Miku or the Kagamine twins when you can vote for ALL THE VOCALOIDS! Vocaloids have many different songs and beautiful voices. More people need to learn about Vocaloids! Everyone knows about Justin Beiber and One Direction and all those people, but I have never heard Vocaloid on the radio. It's about time Vocaloids were introduced to EVERYBODY... I'm so glad Vocaloids are occupying the top spots on this list. VOTE VOCALOIDS
All of the Vocaloids are amazing singers and should be expressed in public events, even if they are not real. Vocaloids are computer singers, They are usually not seen a lot in America and other country's other then Japan, which they are VERY famous there.
The Vocaloids ARE WAY BETTER than girls generation COME ON who needs a whole bunch of normal girls performing BORING get the vocaloids CHANGE TO THE WORLD
All of them should perform! (Or at least as many as they can! ) If not the Japanese vocaloids, maybe the english ones, like Sonica or Oliver. It isn't all about Miku, you know! All of them deserve the same amount, if not more, attention Miku gets. They represent just how much technology has advanced. At times, vocaloids sound more human than those crappy artists using autotune!
Luka needs to be 4th 1st all vocaloids 2nd hatsune miku 3rd rin and len and 4th luka if all vocaloids come then luka will be included
Luka needs to perform she is amazeing and needs more attention since she came out she has amazed even more fans than meiko gumi lily even kaito! Luka deserves this.
Luka is better than Miku in my opinion! But that's just what I think, I want her to perform! She should be first, then Len and rin, then Meiko and so on! But if not Luka, all Vocaloids with Luka as the star! It would be so cool.
I couldn't careless about the rest. But Luka is Luka.
I personally think that Katy Perry is an inspirational, great singer. I hope she performs at Sochi. - swrs1234
I think she is the best! Her stage performs are so colorfull and brilliant :D I love her so much and she means a lot to me
My name is scotty masters I what to hear katy perry last firday night
performs songs on radio stations of 107.7 magic
hi katy perry I need you now life with you forever are you feeling in love with
scotty masters my life
They are wonderful and also are a awesome music group!
They are the best. So talented, so kind, so beautfiul VOTE!
They are reallytalented and they never went at the olympics ceremony
Girl's Generation is absolutely so talented...
I think, compared to Hatsune Miku, they are almost twins. Girl's Generation can dance just as well and sing just as well as Miku. Especially their leader, Taeyeon. Her voice is just beautiful. She can sing really high and really low.
Comparing to Miku, Girl's Generation's dancing and singing is unbelievable. They are just as good as Miku. I am also a Miku fan but I choose to stay on Girl's Generation's side... They are actually human yet they can do all the things Miku can. They can dance, sing, act cute, stay cute...
They also have a member that speaks really good English. Tiffany and Jessica had the best English since they were born in America but Jessica left but Tiffany's still there.
Please please please let Girl's Generation go to the Olympics! Give them a chance to prove to everyone that they truly are talented.
I like Justin Bieber very much. I hope he can appear in the London Olympic Games Olympic Games add different colors to.
To the one who put the flaw, really? You know there's Summer Olympics and Winter Olympics, right? Like Vancouver 2010? The Winter Olympics is next year!
One slight flaw with your list; the next Olympics is 2016 not 2014. Green Day should perform reguardless.
She has a great charizma to make a show hot and sizzling. She deserves the spot in the ceremony
Linkin Park is awesome. that's why
He will rock the ceremony. As he has many hard rock songs. Ladies will go crazy.
Super Junior has been through so much and really are one of the greatest musical acts out right now. They always put on a fantastic performance no matter what. They show their talents a variety of ways, both as a group and on their own. They're so humble and always show their love to their fans. If you ever have a chance to search them on youtube, you won't regret it. ELF will forever be by their side! Super Junior Fighting!
JJANG! They're really amazing! The BEST boyband EVER in the WORLD! VOTE THEM, ELF and you will never regret bout that!
SHiNee hasn't done many activities inn the states so it'll be good for them to come here. Plus, everyone will love them. They are pretty much legends. From their vocals to their dancing, how could they not be ranked number 1?!
Vote them guys if you really one true SHINee world
Shawol like the rice and shinee like is the soup!
One Direction are amazayn! They have made it extremely far and what better way than to really feel accomplished then to sing at the OLYMPICS! I'm sure thousands of fans would be happy. One Direction isn't just a boy band for girls many adults like their music too! One Direction for the 2012 Summer Olympics!
Number one material here
They sing at the 2012 London Olympics, so why couldn't they sing at the Sochi 2014 Olympics? I'm watching the closing ceremony only for the, just saying :)
If they sing at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, there will be a lot of people watching the Olympics, they really should sing here!
Okay, these 5 guys just are amazing! They are so popular, and about every teen girl would want to go to the opening ceremonies just to see them!
I love kim hyun joong
It would be awesome if they play in the Olympics.
If. This band
Yui is an inspirational singer and she deserved a spot performing at the olympics.
I love JYJ very much. I want to see them in the London Olympic Games Olympic Games. they're so amzing
I love JYJ very much.They are so amazing.
Well, the winner was tatu, since they did perform. I would've preferred just Lena. I would've loved hearing "just a day" or "waiting'.
It will be ridiculous if they don't choose Lena or tATu to perform at the games. She is the most successful artist in Russia. It will be great if tATu reunites in this event.
The angelic voice of the most successful Russian group, ever...T.A.T.U... Belongs to Lena Katina.
Ha Ha! I just found a whole face book account titled: We Want T.A.T.U. To Perform In The 2014 Olympics In Russia
Vitas could not come to America because of the politicians and visa is an obstacle, but a lot of people want to see Vitas.
Bigbang is boyband the best from korea - iqbalkusumah
Big bang needs to be there
They're one of a kind!
He would be so cool to see pump everyone up. The Olympics at times can get really boring, but having the best DJ on the planet would get a lot of people to get off Reddit and Facebook and watch the Olympics.
Laugh out loud SKRILLEX WILL SING WELL THE MUSIC THE BOOGIE MAN ONE WERE THE GIRL MURDERS THIS GUY AND THIS SCARY CREATURE TAKES HIM AWAY AND THEN THE MAN DIES
He is the perfect choice for this list. He is such a singer who can sing any kind of song in the world perfectly. He can sing in differnt voices uniquely & also in differnt languages perfectly.
Best one sonu nigam we love
Its no use picking an artist for this based only on their musical abilities - they need to be able to put on a really good show as well. I don't believe that any artists in the world have a more explosive show (literally and metaphorically) than Rammstein. Their shows are such a visual and aural spectacle and general assault on the senses that they would fit right in with the extravagance of the Olympics opening ceremony.
Also, there is no such thing as the "2014 Sochi Olympics", the next Olympics are in 2016 and in Rio De Janeiro.
One of the best visual kei bands (if not the best). They writte music that has sence, messages and emotion, something rare for the songs of 21st century. Vote for The GazettE! Gazerock is not dead!
Me encanta la música de the gazette, me hace sentir que no estoy sola, y son lindos
Neru may be a Derivative but that doesn't mean she doesn't get her chance to shine does it no VOTE FOR NERU AND HAKU Haku may be a derivative but she has also done WAY BETTER than one direction could ever do because One Direction arnt Derivatives and people don't judge them because of it Haku has been doing well for her deritivity and is doing better than one direction ever could if this happened to them AND she only has 4 songs and all the other vocaloids have like 12000 songs so Haku and Neru are good decisions
To be honest, I'd pay to listen to these guys play at every Olympics all the time.
