Another Olympics is in the books. Tonight marks the end of the Winter Games in PyeongChang, with the closing ceremony. Here's what to watch for on the last day of the Winter Olympics.
What to expect at the Closing Ceremony
8:00 pm ET / 5:00pm PT | Watch on NBC
Thousands of fans will pack into the PyeongChang Olympic Stadium for the closing ceremony. Like the opening ceremony, unity and culture will be the main focus of the event. Oh Jang-hwan, the director of the ceremonies, has said that the theme of the closing ceremony will be "Next Wave." The event will be all about looking toward the future.
Here's what you should watch for:
- Figure skating commentators Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir will be hosting the event along with sportscaster Terry Gannon.
- Cross-country skier Jessie Diggins will be the U.S delegation's flag bearer
- K-pop singer CL and boy group EXO are confirmed performances during the ceremony. The opening ceremony did not heavily feature k-pop, but it will make a larger appearance tonight.
- Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump will lead the U.S presidential delegation.
Because of the 14-hour time difference between South Korea and the East Coast, the show you'll see on NBC Friday night is pre-recorded. But if you're committed to watching it live, you can stream the opening ceremony starting at 6 a.m. ET / 3 a.m. PT Friday on NBCOlympics.com
Cross-country skiing: Women's 30km final
