The world is gearing up for the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremonies tonight. With acclaimed filmmaker Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting) as the director behind the event, the "Isles of Wonder" theme promises to dazzle audiences around the globe.
The Ceremony will begin at 9 p.m. in London. While that's only 4 p.m. in the U.S., the stateside broadcast will be delayed until 7:30 p.m. ET. NBC has cornered off almost five hours for the full evening of coverage.
Meanwhile, in the Twitter bullpen, US Olympians are ready and raring to go for one of the most thrilling summers of their lives.
Will you be tuning in tonight?
