The performers for the League of Legends World Championship Finals Opening Ceremony have been announced by Riot through their official League of Legends Twitter account. One of the performers, obviously, will be none other than the president of League of Legends himself – Lil Nas X.

LoL Worlds 2022: All Opening Ceremony Performers

Who can you get hyped for on November 5, 2022 when the finals are set to kick off in San Francisco. Lil Nas X will be performing the LoL World Championship anthem in front of a sold out Chase Center. But, of course, that won't be the only performer.

Riot has also announced Louis Leibfried and Edda Hayes. Okay, sure, these aren't the most famous names out there, but then you realize that they worked on the League of Legends Season 12 'The Call' trailer and you're set for one epic introduction to the biggest esports match of the year.

Finally, we've also got one more performer. Jackson Wang, member of the Korean pop group Got7, as well as famous solo artist, will also be performing at the event which has kpop fans hyped. Lil Nas X and Jackson Wang on the same stage? Don't mind if I do.

Need a new pick in the bot lane? Why not try out some donger support?

This isn't Jackson Wang's first foray into the esports sphere. In 2020, it was announced that he would partner with the Macao based LPL team Victory Five. So now he gets to be even closer to the esports scene as a performing artist at the biggest esports event.
