A truly amazing master class by Danny Doyle. I'm so proud to be a Londoner tonight.

WELL DONE LONDON!!!!

That was a great show and much more human then Beijings ceremony and especially the rural land to the industrial revolution ending with the Olympic Rings on fire had so much soul. Almost brought a tear to the eye. It was very emotive and you felt part of it all. The Cauldron lighting was AMAZING so elegant, emotional and clever with the legendary Olympians passing on their torch to the new generation to light the cauldron. The Cauldron was brilliant and the guy who designed it deserve a great amount of praise. The individual small cauldrons and they way they all rose up was mesmerising. I thoroughly enjoyed and laughed at the Queens parachute jump and Mr Bean Loved it!

Bravo, a great show! I Preferred it to Beijing's strict regimented show. This was much more fun and seems more like the people's games rather then te governments games as it seemed like with Beijing. You guys should all be so proud. I wish I was there!
