All the nations, including the United States and host nation China have lined up on the stadium floor in what has been a long yet always exciting parade of nations. There were 205 nations and around 10,000 athletes that marched into the stadium over the past two hours and now we await proceed with the formalities of this ceremony. We will soon see remarks made IOC President Jacques Rogge and the Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee. Then Chinese Presidnet Hu Jingtao will declare these games open. The raising of the Olympic flag, the oaths and of course the lighting of the Olympic cauldron.

Keep up with the ceremony at our live blog: and remember you can catch the entire ceremony tonight on NBC starting at 7:30PM / 6:30 PM Central.
