After the 2012 London Olympics come to an end Sunday, the Closing Ceremony will provide a fitting end to the games, with musical acts The Who, George Michael, Annie Lennox, and Muse, among others, set to perform. All athletes will enter the Olympic Stadium for the 'after-party,' which will also feature the Men's Marathon medal ceremony.
Finally, the ceremony will serve as the official hand-off to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 summer games, and the flame at London's Olympic Stadium will be extinguished.
NBC, after opting not to live-stream the spectacular Opening Ceremony, will stream the closing ceremonies live online beginning at 3 pm CT on NBCOlympics.com. The network will show the ceremonies on NBC's primetime coverage across all time zones beginning at 6 pm CT.
