I wouldn't go as far as saying it's a rip off, but the new version is unnecessary - from a fan's point of view. I have to say it made the track sound fresh in the "live" context. I think the organizers simply wanted something new, instead of just using the original version. Although Kate didn't appear in person, it was still one of the classier acts in the show. But of course with Spice Girls, Take That and a plethora of old hags in the line up, the competition wasn't very hard. Obviously Kate's voice is different, but the original was recorded closer to 30 years ago. Her voice is still fine, unlike that of Annie Lennox (listen to her Christmas Cornucopia), who wisely chose to perform to a prerecorded vocal... Unlike Ms. Sandé who was constantly flat (chills).
It remains to be seen whether the new version was made for the Olympics or if the Olympics came just in time for the forthcoming KB compilation, which is rumoured to be released later this year... ;.)

I love Kate Bush but this sounds as if she is closer to the grave.

As heard in the London 2012 Olympic Games end ceremonies. Despite being titled '2012 Remix', the track is not really remix. The backing track is a new mix of the original recording and stays true to the original sound. There are no new instruments or rhythmic patterns introduced (typical to a 'remix') - so perhaps this should have been titled 'New Vocal' like the 1986 version of "Wuthering Heights".
