The closing ceremony will also feature the highly-anticipated reunion of Spice Girls, and One Direction is expected to perform as well. Paul McCartney will make an appearance to sing another Beatles hit following his gig at the Opening Ceremony, and the music director of the Olympic Closing Ceremony, David Arnold, told The Telegraph that he thinks the Closing Ceremony "should be the greatest afterparty in the world ... If the Opening Ceremony was the wedding, then we’re the wedding reception."

Arnold has been working on the music content for the ceremony alongside artistic director Kim Gavin, a theatrical and ballet choreographer, and designer Es Devlin, who has created sets for Lady Gaga and Rihanna, for the Closing Ceremony.

The Closing Ceremony, featuring more than 4,100 performers, will kick off Sunday at 9 p.m. in the Olympic Stadium.
