64 The Wanted The Wanted The 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!

I pick them cause they don't have much fame like 1D ( NOT SAYING THAT 1D SUCKS ) its just cause they have wayy moré fame! Thanks
Still I'm a a directianator and the wanted family I love them =aly
Love. Angela

65 Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

Ed Sheeran. What can you say about Ed Sheeran?
He has pure raw talent.
He means all the words he sings.
He appeals to all ages.
He makes his whole backing track on stage.
He has fans.
He is ginger.
He does loads of different genres of music.
He makes me smile.
He own the stage.
Ed Sheeran is amazing.

Ed Sheeran has had an incredible 2011 but that was just the start. He has inspired many young people with his incredible talent, is an amazing act to watch live and has really raised the bar in the music scene. I think he would show off the UK's music talent perfectly - he can sing, rap, beatbox and play guitar and most importantly, he has achieved everything from his musical talent and by putting 110% into everything he's done. The whole world needs to know and appreciate Ed Sheeran's talent. He is the perfect act for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies. 2012 is Ed's year.

Ed Sheeran is the most talented man in the music business. He keeps it real, everyone loves him, he is beautiful, can make an epic song from his voice and a guitar ( and sometimes a loop pedal) Ed has come on such journey, gigging all over the UK and over in America to get him where he is now, whereas other so called 'singers' have it handed to them on a plate. Ed Sheeran is most deserving to sing at the opening ceremony, he is a success story of Britain and the best talent Britain has to show, and that's what should be represented - the best of Britain.

I agree. He is the best. I listen to "Give me love" all the time. You can feel his energy and emotion throughout the song. I give him an A++++.

Their song 'Ready to Go' would be perfect to get the crowd going and make everyone feel a little better!

Their song 'Read to Go' would be perfect to get the crowd going and make everyone feel a little better!

They've worked so hard ever since the split. They deserve to perform. They're an amazing band, my favorite.

They are really good, and sing in a variety of different genres. They have songs like "Nails for Breakfast, Tacks for Snacks" "9 in the Afternoon" and "Pas De Cheval" which are all really different. They've worked hard after splitting up, and they have great voices and songs. They really deserve the chance!

69 P!nk P!nk Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

She is the absolute best... Everyone will have a great time! No matter what she sings she brings the house down!

She is one of the best singers of the generation, encouraging people to be themselves. She stands for everything the Olympics represent, diversity. All the countries around the world united under one roof showing off sporting brilliance, why not have her help them also show off the brilliance of acceptance.

She is the best artist ever and would make everybody stand up and sing!

Simply because she is the best and no one can beat her. She should be at the opening ceremony of Olympics, because she can cook up such a performance with her athletic skills and voice, you will sit and stare in awe for her.

73 Elton John Elton John

Because this is Elton John! He's a complete legend and very British and would be wonderful to represent the UK. And come on seriously, who actually wants JLS singing at the Olympics, you must be kidding. I'd be downright ashamed if we had those guys representing our country.

A real legend, the best piano player and performer that England has ever done! And also a great variety of songs that everyone knows. One of the best representative of United Kingdom in the world!

British legend, worldwide fame, brilliant performer and songwriter...

He's the best, one of the few who could make me watch the Olympics...

74 Kaito Kaito KAITO 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

75 Robbie Williams Robbie Williams

Who else could entertain and captivate every single person in the stadium. He's got some cracking songs. Everyone should see Robbie Williams live at least once in their life time. I can't think of anyone better. Plus everyone knows the words to Angels it's like a mini national anthem.

England's king of pop! Enough said! And who the hell is Joe McElderry?

Because he is amazing at singing, and has brilliant looks.. And is one of Britain's greatest musicians

105 place? Robbie is the best British singer he must be at London no metter what 20 years of pure records awards and Guinness, UK=Robbie Williams all world knows who is Robb and where he come from so take robb in first place and please JB, Lady Gaga? WE ARE TALKING ABOUT good MUSIC GOOD SINGERS AND NATURAL PERFORMANCES..

77 Bon Jovi Bon Jovi Bon Jovi is a hard rock band formed in 1983, which had a streak of successful albums in the late 1980s. The band originally consisted of lead vocalist Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Ritchie Sambora (left in 2013), bassist Alec John Such (left in 1994), keyboard David Bryan, and drummer Tico Torres. The band's more.

Bon Jovi should be there, this band is a living Legend! Also, they are a versatile band and their live shows are amazing, and they are known for their humanitarian support, so it can be perfect in an international event such as The Olympic Games

Bon Jovi is one of best bands of the world 15 million people want to see them on the stage in the London Olympics opening they had sold out there in the UK in the last concert

What! Bon jovi should be top 10 his one of the best bands ever there been there for 25 years and his songs are full of passion they are amazing and Justin Bieber don't deserves being top 10

Holy crap, this list might as well be top 10
Bands that female teenagers that no one thinks understand them listen to and the rest of the world hates. Bon Jovi is pretty good, though.
