Musicians from around the world came together to perform John Lennon and Yoko Ono's "Imagine" for the opening ceremony at the Tokyo Olympics on Friday (July 23), and among them were John Legend and Keith Urban.
The performance kicked off with children's choruses from Asia singing on the floor of a mostly empty Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, before the set melded different genres of music from around the world. Four-time Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo -- who represented Africa with her fusion of West African traditions with R&B, jazz, and more -- danced and sang on a screen. Europe was represented by Spanish singer and composer Alejandro Sanz.
The performance quieted down as Legend, representing the Americas, appeared on the screen to sing his parts. Finally, country star Urban, who hails from New Zealand, was introduced, representing Oceania.
