WORST: The musical pairing the world was not waiting for China may have its adorable lip-syncing children, but the West has The X-Factor and classic rock. So call it a draw? And whereas China opened the Olympic Games with a show-stopping futuristic display of rhythm and light, London looked to 2012 by turning to 1969, tapping Led Zeppelins Jimmy Page to perform Whole Lotta Love with pop singer Leona Lewis. And it was a tamer, friendlier version of the song at that, according to multiple press reports, as the lyrics Lewis sang were slightly altered from the original. But maybe we can see if Simon Cowell is available to offer a different assessment?
