    Is there any way to watch the gala streaming live in Canada, like it was for the rest of the competition? the main Canadian channels don't seem to have it listed...

    They invited some junior nobody to skate but not Johnny Weir? VANOC is officially the worst Olympic organizers ever.

    Why would they have invited Johnny Weir? He did not place in the top 4 nor is he from the host country so I am confused as to what he should have been invited? Nam is an exceptional skater and he brought down the house when he skated at the 4CC exhibition last year. The Olympics is all about the journey of an athlete and the young talent coming up. The crowd will love him. He is also a three time Canadian Champion at the age of 13 so he is not a nobody here in Canada.

    The Olympic games aren't some podunk backyard gathering for some kid's family and friends. It's an international stage, and people around the world want to see Johnny Weir, not the third place finisher in juniors who didn't compete in the Olympics.

    Any link for the rest of the World? I'm sure NBC won't air the whole thing.

    Don't watch him then. Johnny didn't qualify to skate in the gala so there is no reason he should be there.

    Who is this joker singing? It's like a poor man's Josh Groban, and Josh Groban is pretty shoddy to begin with. I haven't heard a national anthem butchered this badly since Roseanne at the Superbowl. Good thing it's only the Canadian national anthem.

    Er what? You crazy. And some kid who didn't even skate in the Olympics did? Your logic is astonishing in its utter nonexistence.

    The point is that he shouldn't be there. Only figure skaters who actually competed at this Olympics should be there.

    Too bad we will have to see that little creep Patrick Chan tonight afterall.

    I'm on sportsnet. Pretty sure that it would be on CTV's Olympics site too. I too would like to see Weir; but, at least Lambiel is skating!
