Who will perform at the Fifa World Cup 2022?

FIFA has yet to announce the official list of performers for the 2022 World Cup. However, South Korean singer Jeon Jung-kook (a member of the Korean boy band BTS) was announced as one of the performers in the opening ceremony.

On November 11, BTS tweeted the happy news.

“Proud to announce that Jung Kook is part of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Soundtrack & will perform at the World Cup opening ceremony. Stay tuned!” the band posted.

The news quickly trended on social media as fans congratulated their favorite artist. Jung-kook is the first Korean artist to perform in the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony.

While no confirmation has been announced, Shakira (a three-time FIFA World Cup performer) is rumored to be part of the ceremony this year, along with J Balvin, Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams, and Nora Fatehi. – WhatALife!
