Riot has confirmed that Jackson Wang will perform live in this year’s Worlds.

Worlds is the biggest and most anticipated event of League of Legends. It’s an annual event where the best team from around the world compete against each other.

Ever since Imagine Dragons in 2013, there are always live performances by top artists in the Worlds. So naturally, these live performances create a lot of hype for the remaining Worlds matches.

These live performances happen during the Finals of the Worlds. So many fans go to the Worlds event IRL to meet their favorite artists.

The finals for Worlds 2022 will take place on November 5, 2022, and will occur in San Francisco, California. The first artist confirmed to make an appearance at the Worlds 2022 was Lil Nas X, who made this year’s Worlds music video. However, other than him, there was no confirmation as to who would perform in this year’s Worlds.
