Music Artists You'd Like to Perform at the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremonies
The Contenders: Page 6
Wonderful band from Japan! Distributed by Yuki Kajiura! With mysterious, melodic, gothic, pop, rock, fantasy melody elements in songs! Just perfection of performance!
Kalafina is not just a group, they are three ridiculously talented girls that make one VERY STRONG VOICE! You have a sweet sporano, a honey-like mezzo-soprano and a very very very very dark and rich contraalto! They have been so successful in Japan, as well as Anime Boston and Expo. To even see them in London, especially the opening ceremony, would do justice! Please listen to them on Youtube, because they are a rare group WHOSE LIVES DOMINATE THEIR RECORDINGS! ANd not to mention that their music producer is the genius YUki Kajiura ( Madoka Magica OST, Mai-Hime, Kara No Kyoukai, Noir, Mai Otome, Hack/Sign and many more) They can take to Nirvana and then bring you back to life only to be sent their by their voices! And if this sounds like a complete hyperbole, go and listen to their lives on Youtube! That is all.
It's a pretty group from Japan! I think most of people can feel in heaven when they just first heard it. What's more? These three girls are good at making the atmosphere high, in my opinion, this is the most important thing in the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremonies.
Music from the Heavens. My God bless them.V 41 Comments
I think the world has a lot to learn... Let's give the opportunity to an Asiatic Band to show their talent to the world
Love Miss A, they all are so talented beautiful and adorable, love to see their performance anytime, especially on the big stages, always support them!
Beauties with long legs and on high heels? Neat! Even singing? Hell yeah!
miss A you are the best ♥
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.V 1 Comment

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 playV 54 Comments
Mizuki is active both as a voice actress and a singer. She always does her best to do anything even that's hard for her. Her earnestness and her really fantastic songs move me.
The humble and brilliant singer in the Animation and games stand in the Kouhaku three times! The powerful singer skills with the pop music mix classical!
She is one of the best singers in Japan. Few people can success in both voice acting and singing, but she made it! Nana is not only very popular in Japan but in many other countries as well. Her voice is fantastic!
Mizuki nana is a great singer and would be great to sing at the games - kazanaritsubasaV 16 Comments
I'd definitely watch the Olympics if Metallica performed there. It's about time that we get a metal band to perform there.
Because we need REAL MUSIC in this event, some serious artist, like Metallica, Ozzy, AC/DC. WE NEED ROCK! NOT DANCES AND K-POP! Even Linkin Park, The 39's (Hatsune Miku) and Larc'n Ciel will be good. That's good music, Not a group of nice guys dancing doing lipsync, WE NEED REAL MUSIC! GOOD MUSIC! GOOD MUSICIANS! NO K-POP AT THE OLYMPICS! NO K-POP! THAT'S AN INSULT TO THE GOOD MUSIC!
Well, arguing will get me nowhere due to the amount of people in the world who listen to electronic rap and think that it has a beautiful melody and pop that secretly (or sometimes obviously) is just talking about drugs and sex, but I think that Metallica has plenty of talent. Maybe if they played a song like "Enter Sandman", other people wouldn't be AS upset, but I don't know...
! Just Imagine it... I'm already there :))V 18 Comments
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!V 40 Comments
Lead singer of The Click Five, Kyle Patrick, will wow the crowd with his amazing voice, and his new song Go For Gold. He is a truly talented performer, with powerful vocals and amazing guitar skills!
Reckon Go For Gold' as the 2012 Olympic Theme Song. The lyric is so encouraging, giving people hope to fight for their dream no matter what, just like the time when you're in the sport realm, even though you lose at the first round, you still gotta learn through the mistake, live it & change it to the utmost ability in order to fight for your GOLD medal in future. It's very fitting for 2012 Olympics not only because of the lyric but the title of the song as well " GO FOR GOLD!
The song is not released yet (approximately by May 2012) but you may search from the Youtube to check for its tunes & lyric.
In addition, as 2012 Olympics is gonna adopt the 3D vision, it is also very match to the Go For Gold that's gonna shoot in 3D video. Hope it'll be adopted as the Them Song of 2012 Olympics soon!
Kyle is not only the front man of the click five, but he is also a very passionate solo artist who is working on his own solo material. Kyle also believes in giving back to society and is involved in the MTV exit campaign that raises awareness on human exploitation and trafficking. Kyle has aspired to have his song "go for gold" involved in the London olympics in one way or another. The lyrics are very apt and it is an inspiring song indeed.
Such a passionate and talented singer should not be excluded in participating in the activities surrounding the olympics. His vocals are so powerful and can be seen that he really sings from the heart.
"Ready set go for gold, chasing every heartbeat we can feel it starting. Ready set go for gold! Chasing till we own it living in the moment. Ready set go for gold tonight. "
His song 'Go for the Gold would be a good anthem for the Olympics. It's fitting given the title. Most of the songs have good rhythms and his voice is nice and soothing. He would be a great choice for singing either the opening or the closer.V 224 Comments
Leona Lewis, sings like a angel, so beautiful but so powerful! She would be perfect! Her performance would most definitely be explosive! The world needs to see her perform!
Best voice, best look, best personalities, Her performance sure will stun the audience! GO BUNNIES!
I'm from America and I'm rooting for the British songbird which is clearly the one to represent the Brits worldwide. Since it's the Olympics, they better have someone recognizable, with eye magnetizing looks, and voice as a clear as crystal. May I add she's had experience closing the Beijing Olympics ceremony. Leona Lewis is now and the future!
She is the greatest UK artist right now. She must be at the Olympicss. Let her make us proud!V 59 Comments
What a performance they would have at the opening ceremony. They are brilliant live and it would give them a chance to showcase their AMAZING music to the world. Once in a lifetime opportunity - vote Daughtry!
Grammy nominated band. 14 million albums sold. Three number one albums. Debut album was certified 4x Platinum, sophomore album was certified Platinum and their new release is predicted to sell 250k in it's opening week.
Amazing band! With amazing music! With amazing voice! They create a really good music! A lot of energy! Love it! They are the best!
They are fantastic great voice, the best! Their music should reach each heart and each soul.V 1 Comment
They are awesome and can sing a big variety! They are from the first Japanese Prototype of Vocaloid (YES, THEY CAME BEFORE MIKU HATSUNE), but that doesn't mean that they are in a lower level.. , IT'S TOTALLY THE OPPOSITE! With a little bit of attention they could be amazing.. , LET CRYPTON HEAR US AND VOTE THEM SO THEY COULD GIVE MORE LOVE TO THEM! VOCALOID 1 YEAH!
Yes even though I wanted miku these will make it, there different and sophisticated and have such great talent, I am one of their biggest fans and I believe them performing will make a big impact on the music industry hell yeah go on
A new era has begun with Miku and vocaloid. Their music has now given the world the vision to see that music is not only made by humans.
We must show London the beauty of Vocaloid! If they get chosen I will be so happy!
THE CLICK FIVE is a band of naturally talented men who perform for a massive show. They have incredible songs that they wrote, with great melodies. They should be performing at this event, simply because they deserve it and everyone wants a brilliant show. If you don't know this band, better search for them and listen to their songs, it's simple to do, and I am certain that you won't regret anything. I am fan who doesn't live in London nor in Europe, I don't have the chances of watching them perform if ever, but I am still doing this for them because they mean so much to me and you people should notice this band too. They deserve the fame and support from everyone. So pleasee!
The Click Five is amazing! Their songs are made with love and quality!
It is really painful to see that they are not that popular in their own country but in Asia, The Click Five is a big thing! They are so kind to their fans and even play music for charity all the time!
The should be in the 2012 Olympics! Let their music be heard and appreciated by people who don't know them yet!
The Click Five is one of the best rock bands out there! They are awesome musicians which have a big heart for music! They are a group of talented musicians that drive themselves to the limit in order to make new music that everyone can enjoy! They are also advocates of Anti-Human Trafficking and have visited many shelters in Cambodia! They not only have hearts for music but hearts for people who went through bad things! They should be in 2012 Olympics! Come on! Consider this band! We beg you!
THIS BAND NEEDS TO PROVE THAT THEY'RE ONE OF THE GREATEST ROCK BANDS OF OUR GENERATION. THEY HAVE PERFORMED TO LARGE CROWDS FOR A CAUSE BEFORE. AND NOW I WANT THEM SO BAD TO BE ON STAGE DURING THIS EVENT, I AM A BIG CLICK FIVE FAN AND THIS WOULD BE A DREAM COME TRUE, NOT ONLY TO THEM BUT ALSO TO ME.V 7 Comments
They are british metal incarnate... Why not the most influential british metal band besides judas priest?
The ultimate of BRITISH rock music... No contest
Maiden all the way
For sheer presence, entertainment and solid performance
It would be an absolutely amazing feat for Maiden to play
At the 2012 Olympics
It's utterly ridiculous they didn't perform at the ceremony. While some of the other acts who performed were decent enough, a lot of them seemed like they were chosen as they were flavour of the month artists who while popular now, no-one will care about in the decades to come. Maiden however are not only popular now but have maintained high levels of quality and consistency throughout the past 40 years, and show now signs of slowing down. They spearheaded the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal in the 80's (making them one of the more important British bands in that decade in my opinion) and represent everything good about British Heavy Metal. They still produce great music now, and despite starting out in an era whose music tends to show its age, Maiden are truly timeless and are a band that makes you proud to be British. That's more than I can say for some of the others who performed. - Mrveteran
It is pathetic that they have 0.1 percent of the vote and stupid asian pieces of Software over shadow them. Iron Maiden is god of British heavy metal and forever a classic. - LucretiaV 60 Comments
They are cool! I love them like crazy. These guys have sacrificed so much to get where they are today. They deserve a chance like this more than any band of performers I know. They've won many awards and are very popular throughout the entire world. The bonds between each member are unbreakable and now matter what happens, they'll always have their fans' hearts. Super Junior forever.

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! ;)
because she sings way better than cher and she can dance and really put on
She'll rock the stage/ I'm pretty sureV 8 Comments
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.
Queen with Adam Lambert are best!
It's very nice and excited!
