Blew my fucking mind. It was truly the single most beautiful thing I have ever witnessed on television. China knows how to show off, that’s for damn sure. The progression of a painting with its performers and parade influencing it (stepped in paint and walked across it) was pure genius. The Bird’s Nest was full of surprises and it literally took my breath away many times, including chills upon chills. I can’t wait to see what they do for the closing ceremony.
