Reeves and Connick Jr. Close Olympics

Vocalist Dianne Reeves will perform at the closing ceremony of the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. She will be joined by ice-skating champion Kurt Browning, who will dance across the frozen water in a skin-tight and sequined suit as Reeves croons. The closing ceremony takes place on Feb. 24, between 7 and 8 p.m. Mountain time.

The Olympics’ closing ceremony will also feature Harry Connick Jr., Yo-Yo Ma, Sting, Jon Bon Jovi, Charlotte Church, Josh Groban and, of course, requisite teen-pop icons N’Sync and pop-tart Christina Aguilera. There’s no word as to whether or not John Tesh will perform, but one can only pray.
