One of the high points of the Ceremony will undoubtedly be the performance by Andrea Bocelli, who will be one of the main acts of the show. Bocelli, who is a world-famous tenor with a tendency for pop, will use his powerful and melodic voice to stir the worldwide audience of the Closing Ceremony.
The "hand-over" segment of the event will include an eight-minute show from Vancouver 2010 that will include Canadian rock star Avril Lavigne. Both Lavigne and Boccelli feature in the IOC's current Celebrate Humanity advertising campaign.

Meanwhile, Allen has sent me a recording from the US as well - I hope to get this up tomorrow.
