Paul McCartney leads an Olympic sing-along7/28/2012
After a comprehensively British opening to the Olympics -- which took in everything from the country's bucolic past to the Industrial Revolution to Voldemort and Mary Poppins -- Paul McCartney closed out the night with a sing-along version of "Hey Jude." The former Beatle opened a two-song set, appropriately enough, with "The End" -- of a very long show. McCartney followed a who's-who of British entertainment, from Kenneth Branagh and J.K. Rowling to rapper Dizzee Rascal, and was arguably the night's most famous name -- besides, of course, the queen herself, who arrived, sort of, with James Bond. McCartney had a better reception at the games than he did just two weeks ago, in London's Hyde Park -- when he and Bruce Springsteen had their mics cut after over-staying their welcome past a sound curfew.
