Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis Get Down in Beijing

August 25, 2008

Last evening at the 2008 Beijing Olympics closing ceremony, Led Zep legend Jimmy Page and British hottie Leona Lewis joined a buttload of Chinese performers while they busted out a live version of “Whole Lotta Love.”Held at the National Stadium (a.k.a. the Bird's Nest), the ceremony was held before a capacity crowd of 91,000 and hundreds of Olympic athletes. Damage.

After handing over the Olympic flag to Boris Johnson, mayor of 2012 Summer Olympics host city London, a red double-decker London bus entered the stadium. Leona Lewis and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page emerged from the bus and broke into their performance.

Jimmy may be old as dirt, but his chops still sound pretty awesome. I’m just not really feelin’ this Leona Lewis chick. She sounds like a broke-ass Christina Aguilera. Zeppelin!
