The Champions League final is the most important event for European football, but also at international level, as this match is viewed by millions of people around the world. That is why everything is always taken care of in the smallest detail. Before Manchester City and Chelsea fight on Saturday night to become the winner of the UEFA Champions League 2021, viewers have been able to visualize a very special moment.
Minutes before the ball started rolling into the Estadio do Dragao in Porto (Portugal), UEFA and Pepsi have offered the mythical opening show of the Champions League final. On this occasion it has been led by the DJ Marshmello, the enigmatic producer and artist, known for hits such as ‘Happier’, ‘Silence’ and ‘Friends’.
A virtual performance
The pandemic situation in which we find ourselves has meant that the show could not be experienced on the pitch, but the artist has offered an authentic virtual show that has seemed most real. Marshmello has started the virtual performance with his characteristic mask and has been gradually encouraging viewers who were viewing the show through their televisions. It has also shown what he sees through the eyes of his mask.
They have sounded various ‘temazos’ of the artist and little by little other singers have been appearing on the Estadio do Dragao in virtual format. Selena Gomez has made viewers fall in love with his song ‘Wolves’, just like the singer Khalid with its theme ‘Silence’.
In a world ball
The protagonists of the show have appeared on a virtual world ball which has shown the different European cities. Around them it has been possible to see the Eiffel Tower or the London Eye. The whole show has been accompanied by dancers who have made the virtual performance has been, once again, the most spectacular.
the social networks have been filled with positive feedback towards the performances of Marshmello, Selena Gomez and Khalid, though the appearance of Selena has been the one that has most impressed viewers.
