The Who! Kinks! Muse! NBC's Axed Olympic Performances! WATCH HERE!!!

Don't worry disgruntled American Olympic viewers!! NBC may have failed at portraying the London 2012 Olympic Closing ceremonies in alll it's epic, musical glory, but we've got you covered!

Ok so yes, NBC DID broadcast wunderbar performances from the Spice Girls and One Direction, among others, but hold up…

ICONIC legends The Who playing Baba O'Riley (above) was axed from NBC's broadcast! And the former lead singer of defining rockers the Kinks performed his ODE to London AKA Waterloo Sunset, yet NBC nixed it in favor of what… four Jessie J songs? (We love her too, but fair is fair!)

And lest we forget Muse's insane, theatrical rendition of Survivor, THE OFFICIAL OLYMPIC SONG (below)… oh wait, we NEVER EVEN SAW IT!

Thanks again NBC!

Really, way to

Olympics Closing Mutilated By NBC! #NBCFails!

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteOops!Wacky, Tacky & TrueTwitterGlee

Awww DUDES!

NBC has been majorly criticized throughout their entire 2012 Olympic Games coverage, and THEN they go and cut half the Iconic British-musician STUFFED pie that was the closing ceremony in favor of some new comedy about an animal hospital…

Frustrating to the maximus!!

Wailing wombats!

British etherial rockers Muse have confirmed they will be shaking it to the right with other iconic UK musicians like the Spice Girls at the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony!

Obviously, the band SHOULD perform seeing as their song Survival is the official 2012 Olympic tune…

But who else will help musically celebrate the athletic triumphs of the past two weeks?!

Spice Girls To Party With Olympians!

Hmmm we give this news a…. 10 10 10!!

If you wanna see The Spice Girls you gotta get with the London 2012 closing ceremony this August 12!

The five-part musical rocket ship that's fueled by girl power is slated to perform two classic hits, Wannabe and some mystery number…

Ooo! Perhaps it'll be some new Olympic-inspired tune! Or a preview of upcoming Spice-infused musical Viva Forever?

George Michael, The Who, and Jessie J are also scheduled to perform at the closing ceremonies, so it's obviously going to be QUITE the epic occasion.

Which is appropriate, seeing as it's the mother f*cking Olympics!!
