Think it was just to Britaish viewers but still amazing and Gary LIneker saying 'well done Frank' was surreal! Loads of ridicoulously stupid people on twitter saying he wasn't right to perform because not enough well known, idiots. So many supporters though too. Love the fact that he sang 'corporate souless circus tops'!

Spot on Frank so many of my friends said they were glad to see a great singer songwriter in the ceremony and shame on BBC for missing out your first two songs especially the sing a long bit

It seems he's been trending on twitter for about 2 hours now. On surely one of the busiest nights of twitter of the year. Amazing.

I'm so proud. I hope there's a video of it somewhere because CTV didn't show it.

I was on a train when it was shown on the tv so I was only able to follow it on twitter. Watching people complaning about there being no Frank, to being able to hear him but not see him to finally seeing I Still Believe on the TV made my journey stuck on a train with kids tired from a day out to the seaside really bearable. It was really nice just seeing everyone in my timeline exclusively talking about Frank.

Watching the whole ceremony I can't believe that Frank, the Sleeping Souls, Marwood, Jim Lockey and the Solemn Sun and Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo were part of that.

Incomprehensible. Speechless. What.
Yep, still totally gobsmacked!

So pleased for them all :-)

wasn't on in Ireland - we had boring talks..... (yawn) and we don't get the BBC (no I don't have sky or cable or freesat)

saw twitter & phoned Mum (in Law) and she said... " no.... can't see him.... they are talking in the studio.....maybe we missed it - hang on - is this it ? " She put the phone near the TV so I could hear I Still Believe and then described all the people and the hill and the sheep and what Frank was wearing.......

I'm hoping it will still be on BBC player when I get home... for Frank's Frome gig - slightly smaller crowd ;-)

Mum is a total star!

What Drew said. Boo on NBC! Can't wait for a new blog and a link (hopefully).

Absolutely mental and brilliant. You can now also buy the soundtrack of the opening ceremony on itunes with I Still Believe being the first track!

Felt slight surreal watching that. Absolutely amazing though. The estimated TV audience, as well as the amount of people in that stadium, was humongous.

Well done Frank.

I think surreal absolutely nails it. So proud of everyone at Xtra Mile today. Plus the live version of it now seems to be up on iTunes.
