Twitter reacts to 'disappointing' Commonwealth Games closing ceremony

The part of the closing ceremony that organisers made a decision to broadcast included performances from local musicians including Amy Shark, Guy Sebastian, Yothu Yindi, Kate Cebrano and Dami Im.

The event was criticised for letting the athletes into the stadium before the ceremony kicked off, effectively eliminating the traditional "entrance" that many viewers look forward to.

"Please remember that (the Games) have been the most inclusive event that our nation has ever hosted", he tweeted. A decision by the artistic creative team of the ceremonies. "Again, we got that wrong", he wrote.

"This resulted in the athletes entering the stadium during the pre-show, rather than during the live broadcast". She released a lengthy statement on Twitter saying: "at no point does it mention there wouldn't be one single shot shown of athletes".

The closing ceremony will be broadcast from 8:30pm AEST, tonight, April 15.

"With over half the athletes scheduled to depart the Gold Coast tomorrow, it is understandable that large numbers of athletes chose to depart the ceremony early, to prepare for their journey or attend their own team celebrations", it said.

But Griggs said Zempilas' admission the ceremony hadn't "lived up to expectations" was too polite. I'm furious. Actually wrecking a tradition that is so important.

"You want to see the athletes come and you want to see them jumping in front of a camera, you want to see them celebrating 11 days of great sport".

Griggs' anger at host broadcaster NEP however was misplaced, with GOLDOC Chairman Peter Beattie admitting to Sunrise this morning that the "buck stops with us". "We got that wrong", the Commonwealth Games chairman said. "The people who have been critical are also justified", Beattie said.

"That's our fault. that's my fault. I accept full responsibility for it", he said.

"I've been talking to families that were there as well and Kate Jones (Commonwealth Games Minister) also shares that view".

"We wanted athletes to be part of and enjoy the closing ceremony".

"It was a little disappointing with the athletes being brought in before the actual ceremony began", Brandt said on Australian Television on Monday.

However, Mr Beattie told Sunrise that the reason for leaving the athletes out was based on the competitors' welfare. They've competed, they're exhausted.

"But we made a mistake".

"I'll contact Kurt Fearnley who I'm a big fan of to apologise to him today".
