The United States won't be able to view the closing ceremony at Fischt Stadium until the taped delay airs at 8:30 p.m. EST on Sunday night, however, here's a spoiler alert -- all five rings will, finally, appear.

Sochi just needed a second chance and ditched technology for real-life.

According to the Associated Press and ABC News, "A group of 700 dancers formed the five Olympic rings Sunday night during the closing ceremony at Fischt Stadium, but delayed forming the fifth ring in a humorous nod to a pyrotechnic malfunction during the opening ceremony. Dancers symbolizing small fish wore flowing, mirrored robes while forming different shapes on the arena floor, including a sea, the infinity symbol and eventually, the rings. Above them, a boat with a clown and a little girl passed in the air."

Julie Chu of the American women's silver-medal hockey team was the appointed Team USA flag bearer during the ceremony.
