Kate Bush has praised the organisers of the Olympic closing ceremony, after a remix of 'Running Up That Hill' was used in last night's finale.

The track prematurely appeared on Amazon last week, sparking rumours that the reclusive singer was going to make a rare live performance. The track was subsequently taken down, before being officially released after last night's (August 12) event.

Posting on KateBush.com, Bush wrote: "I hope you all enjoyed the remix of Running Up That Hill this evening at the Olympics Closing Ceremony. They certainly put on a brilliant show."

The remix of 'Running Up That Hill' featured last night as a group of dancers built a pyramid out of white boxes while highlights of the Games were shown through the stadium.

Other performances at the closing ceremony included Liam Gallagher's Beady Eye playing Oasis' 'Wonderwall' - the first time Gallagher has sung the track live since Oasis split up in 2009. Muse meanwhile performed their official Olympic song 'Survival', with the help of a huge choir. The Spice Girls, Kaiser Chiefs, The Who, Pet Shop Boys, Jessie J and Brian May also appeared.

'A Symphony of British Music: Music For The Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games', an album containing music performed on the evening, is now available digitally via iTunes.
