It has been reported sometime ago that Leona Lewis will appear at the closing ceremony of Beijing Olympic Games on August 24, performing a duet with Led Zeppelin's guitarist, Jimmy Page. It is now revealed that the spectacular collaboration will present a version of Zeppelin's 1969 song "Whole Lotta Love".

The play set was supposed to be a top secret but it was unveiled by one of the musicians who will support them in the performance. Bassist Guy Pratt who has worked with numerous rock stars, spilled on his blog, "You may also be interested to know that when Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis perform Whole Lotta Love at the end of the Olympics, that's me playing bass on it." Still, there is no confirmation from the show's organizer regarding the song.

"Whole Lotta Love" appeared in the legendary rock band's second album "Led Zeppelin II" and was ranked no. 75 by Rolling Stone in its 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list.

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that David Beckham too will appear at the closing ceremony, arriving on top of a red double-decker bus and kick soccer balls to children representing all the countries competing in the games. He, Leona and Jimmy all represent London as the next host of the games in 2012.

They already did that. Actually they did that for 12 years from 1968 to 1980.

How sad...and equally pathetic. Jimmy Page's star is gone forever.

How lame - a big bus that unfolds into a green globule while an empty pop star sings to a dinosaur?

"Can someone please talk my husband into going back to the UK? I'm sick of being made fun of by no talents in Hollywood. Now if you'll excuse me - I need to vomit up my lunch."

In 10 years - Leona Lewis will look like Lennox Lewis. Everybody had better get to bangin' her before the clock strike midnight.

Uhh - Robert Plant would have impregnated Leona by the time she got to the second chorus. Trust me.

This shouldn't be happening. Jimmy Page playing with a forgettable pop star? No.

"Kick soccer balls to the children representing all the worlds competing." Seriously, I'm in the wrong business. I need to come up with lame ideas like that.
