    Can I just say mad props to the choir! That was a beautiful rendition of our anthem, a lot less harsh than the instrumental. Also, were they prepared to sing anthems from other nations besides Can/US, cause if so hats off to them.

    Of course, only holding texts. They were singing Russian anthem almost without accent, that's for sure.

    The whole sung anthem thing reminds me of the late, great Roger Doucet, who used to sing the Canadian national anthem, O Canada, partly in French & partly in English, for Montreal Canadian hockey games. He also sang the American national anthem. And in the Canada Cup hockey series, he sang the Soviet anthem & all the other teams' anthems-in fact, he was instrumental in getting words rewritten for the Soviet anthem.

    http://www.greatesthockeylegends.com...-national.html

    During the inaugural Canada Cup tournament, Doucet was scheduled to sing the national anthems at a game between Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union on 3 September 1976. However, the lyrics for "Hymn of the Soviet Union" were omitted since the mid-1950s due to their Stalinist content. Doucet consulted with the Université de Montréal's Russian department staff who provided a modified anthem to sing at the game. These lyrics were approved by the Soviet Union the following year for use in its national anthem.[3][4]

    This singing of anthems for other countires is quite the Canadian tradition, one that I think may have begun with Roger Doucet.


    When the Summer Olympics were held in Montreal, Doucet learned all the countries' anthems, and sang them, in the medal ceremonies.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Doucet

    He then made an album of 24 national anthems

    Glad to see the choir at London, ONT carrying on

    Thanks for the link TanithandBenFan

    I have a feeling we're going to be waiting a very long time until they announce their music.

    Oh and I also hope they attend The Ice this year

    Oops! Thanks, I've fixed it.

    I'm surprised the dude who was all "This is not your seat, sweetheart" didn't get on video.

    I know, I was waiting for that to show up on there. He was so rude. I've never seen more commotion about seats for a medal ceremony before.

    Speaking of the award ceremony, I just watched it on IN. That was an odd bit when Sherry Johnston, the wife of the Governor General of Canada, attempted to give the flowers to Tessa first rather than to Meryl. It wasn't like dance was the first award ceremony after all; men's & pairs were the previous day.

    I really enjoyed watching Bobrova being so obviously happy, she was such a joy!
