The world will be watching as the Winter Olympics kicks off Feb. 12 at Vancouver's BC Place Stadium. And while the traditionally lavish proceedings introduce the competing athletes to viewers, the host country is responsible for providing the headlining entertainment. (Remember China's awe-inspiring fleet of dancers and musicians during 2008's summer games?)

Typically, the performers herald from the host country – and Canada has produced a ton of world-renowned talent – from Bryan Adams to pop upstart Justin Bieber to Neil Young. Already, Shania Twain carried the Olympic torch in freezing temperatures through her hometown, Timmins, Ontario. Hopefully she'll get a chance behind the mic in Vancouver, too.
