Twitter has lit up with fury over the 2018 Commonwealth Games closing ceremony, held last night on the Gold Coast. 

As ABC reports, organisers have come under fire for the decision not to include the traditional broadcast of athletes entering the ceremony, featuring long, rambling speeches and confusing performances.

After Channel Seven commentators Johanna Griggs and Basil Zempilas vocally criticised the ceremony on live television, Commonwealth Games chairman Peter Beattie took to twitter this morning to admit the follies of the event.

The lack of focus on the athletes wasn't the only thing that left people unsatisfied with punters criticising the confusing musical performances and Double J's Zan Rowe calling out Channel Seven for not focusing on the acts in their broadcast. 

Performers included the likes of Archie Roach, Amy Shark, Kate Cebrano and more with 1.141 million Australians tuning into the television broadcast according to TV Tonight.Footage shows attendees leaving the ceremony mid-way through and large blocks of empty seats.
