London

(LONDON, ENGLAND) Earlier this week, London went through a dress rehearsal of the Opening Olympics. Nearly 60,000 people were in attendance, but asked to keep quite and not spoil the spectacle for the rest of us. In general, they have remained mum, but overall the reviews have been very upbeat and positive.

Tonight, the real deal happens on NBC. Here’s what you can expect to see:

  • The Queen, Prince William, new wife Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry are expected
  • Fiery Olympic rings will rise over the stadium
  • The show's cast includes 12 horses, 10 chickens, 9 geese and 70 sheep
  • Two “mosh pits” will be filled with dancers
  • Sir Paul McCartney closes the ceremonies with a song
