A potential One Direction 3D movie might’ve been the hot gossip earlier this month, but it sounds like fans of the British-Irish lads may have a totally new event to look forward to instead: the 2012 summer Olympics. Although it has yet to be confirmed, the boy band is supposedly slated to perform at the closing ceremony of the games — in front of billions of people – which will be held in London this year. (Wow, and we thought the fact that they were playing Madison Square Garden in December was a big deal.)
According to the Examiner, “Harry, Zayn, Niall, Liam and Louis are expected to sing “What Makes You Beautiful” at the ceremony for the fans watching the sporting event around the world.”
Meanwhile, ‘rumour has it’ that Adele will also be a part of the big affair (hopefully singing as well). According to UK newspaper, The Daily Star Sunday, “The main theme of the Olympic closing ceremony will be celebrating the best of British music, so it’s only right that One Direction are opening the show. They are the UK’s biggest music export at the moment behind Adele, who is also rumoured to be involved in some way.”
Official confirmation of the summer 2012 Olympics closing ceremony performances will be posted on August 12, 2012. Do you hope One Direction will be a part of the event? How about Adele? Is there any other celeb (British or other) you wish to see perform? And finally, are you excited to watch this year’s games?
