Imagine there’s no celebrity “Imagine” videos — it’s pretty hard to do if you’re watching the Olympics opening ceremony, where another one of these things just debuted. As NBC’s Savannah Guthrie put it afterward, “If the games were a song, ‘Imagine’ would be the song.” Aside from the whole countries-competing-against-each-other bit, sure! And, to be fair, the performance didn’t seem to be inspired by Gadot & Co. An array of singers, including John Legend and Keith Urban, have performed “Imagine” at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics. After a sweet performance of the song’s first verse by Tokyo’s Suginami Junior Chorus from the Olympic Stadium, representing Asia, the opening ceremony pivoted to celebrity video performances of the rest of the John Lennon hit, giving us flashbacks to Gal Gadot’s video from just 16 short months ago. as much as past Olympics ceremonies, after a group of Korean singers covered the song during the opening ceremony of the 2018 PyeongChang Games.
