The opening ceremony began with a moving monologue from veteran actor Morgan Freeman who hosted the ceremony with differently abled Qatari YouTuber Ghanim al Muftah. Previously, musical stars like Ricky Martin, Shakira, and Enrique Iglesias have performed official World Cup songs.
Before Jungkook took to the stage, a medley played iconic World Cup anthems like Cup of Life by Ricky Martin, Waka Waka by Shakira, and Waving Flag by K’naan while previous World Cup mascots took the stage, and flags of the participating countries were flown.
As noted by Korean tabloid Soompi, Jungkook took the stage at Qatar’s Al Bayt Stadium to premiere his new single ‘Dreamers’, produced by the famous Moroccan singer, songwriter, and producer RedOne. Jungkook was also joined by Qatari artist Fahad Al Kubaisi towards the end of the performance.
