Selena Gomez, Khalid and Marshmello will perform at Saturday’s (May 29) UEFA Champions League final opening ceremony. Marshmello announced the news on Monday (May 24) in a video in which he borrowed the method for selecting matches in the early rounds of the elite club competition that crowns the European soccer champ by pulling random miniature soccer balls out of a bowl and revealing his co-star’s names written on slips of paper hidden inside.
“Hey @selenagomez and @thegreatkhalid, see you at the #UCLFinal opening ceremony,” wrote the 29 year-old DJ in a tweet. The Pepsi-sponsored league final is slated to take place on Saturday at Estadio do Dragao Stadium in Porto, Portugal where Manchester City will face off against Chelsea in the 66th European Cup final.
It’s a busy summer for Gomez, who just popped up in the trailer for the upcoming Steve Martin/Martin Short Hulu series Only Murders in the Building, as well as launching the new Mental Health 101 educational campaign with her beauty brand Rare Beauty last month.
Meanwhile, Khalid has been riding high on the Hot Latin Songs chart with his first collaboration with J Balvin, “Otra Noche Sin Ti,” and Marshmello has another potential hit in the making with his summery “Leave Before You Love Me” collaboration with the Jonas Brothers, which they performed at Sunday night’s 2021 BBMA.
