BTS’ Jungkook Will Performing At Qatar Opening Ceremony World Cup 2022. Jungkook, the youngest member of BTS, will be performing in the opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup 2022 on November 20 in Qatar. On Saturday, BigHit’s official handle made the announcement that they would be contributing to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Soundtrack, and they included Jungkook in the lineup.
The opening ceremony of the 2022 FIFA World Cup will feature a performance by Jung Kook, and we are pleased to announce that he will be featured on the official soundtrack for the tournament. Keep an eye out! Tweeted from BTS’s verified account.
Since BTS is now on sabbatical due to Jin’s impending military service, many of the members are focusing on solo endeavours. RM has just revealed his first solo album, Indigo, following in the footsteps of J-Jack Hope’s in the Box and Jin’s solo track with Coldplay, The Astronaut.
The two artists worked together on Charlie Puth’s song “Left and Right” a few months ago. A number of other well-known artists, such as Shakira, Dua Lipa, J Balvin, Diplo from the Black Eyed Peas, Kizz Daniel, Calvin Harris, Nora Fatehi, and Trinidad Cardona, are also expected to perform at the next ceremony.
World Cup anthems and soundtracks have become cultural icons over the years. Some of the most well-known and widely played FIFA anthems are “We Are the Champions” by Queen, “Waka Waka” by Shakira, and “We Are One (Ole Ola)” by Pitbull.
The first instalments of this year’s competition soundtrack featured a fusion of Arabic rhythms, African vocals, and Caribbean sounds. Among the releases from earlier in 2022 is “Light the sky,” which features Nora Fatehi, Balqees, Rahma Riad, and Manal — four of the most popular female vocalists in the Arab world.
At this time, Jungkook’s team members are still a mystery. Shakira, Dua Lipa, J Balvin, and the Black Eyed Peas are among the artists rumoured to perform at the opening ceremony on November 20 at the Al Bayt Stadium.
In 2019, BTS played in Saudi Arabia, which drew criticism for being a “whitewash” of human rights abuses. The remainder of the BTS K-pop group, including Jungkook, who is only 25, continues to have massive success throughout the Middle East and beyond.

He made history by being the first Korean musician to play at a World Cup concert. The new track “Left and Right” by Jungkook and Charlie Puth has just been released. Just a week after the duo teased the song on TikTok, “Left and Right” was officially released, putting an end to months of speculation that the American singer-songwriter might team up with the K-pop boyband.
In 2018, during the MGA Awards in Incheon, Korea, Jungkook joined Puth on stage to perform their popular track “We Don’t Talk Anymore.” Puth repaid the favour later that night by joining the septet onstage to play the piano during a rendition of their song “Fake Love.”
