Last night, Qatar held a spectacular closing ceremony ahead of the final of the FIFA World Cup 2022 in the match between Argentina Vs France
Qatar put on a classic show with its extravagant entertainment of Light, art, poetry, music, and fireworks at the Lusail’s Iconic Stadium for the conclusion to a historic World Cup – the first in the Middle East. A grand event was held to celebrate a month of drama, theatre, passion, skill, and luck on Qatar’s National Day. A spectacular performance in front of nearly 90,000 fans in the stadium and an unknown number of millions worldwide.
However, the final ceremony was not broadcasted globally, only a few channels showed it. As a result, BBC, a big British broadcaster also faced backlash for not showing the final ceremony. But here, we will cover the major highlights of the final ceremony!
FIFA promised “a night to remember”, and it was undoubtedly a night worth memorable.
Famous Bollywood performer and Moroccan-Canadian singer Nora Fatehi, Emirati pop star Balqees, Iraqi musician Rahma Riad and Moroccan vocalist Manal performed on “Light the Sky” and set the stage on fire.
Davido was the hit of the show with Aisha. The Nigerian superstar was the headline act of Sunday’s festivities. And he put on a rather standout performance, donning glinting silver suit while performing his smash World Cup anthem, “Hayya Hayya.”
Puerto Rican megastar Ozuna had a similarly glitzy showcase on the Lusail Stadium terrain. The two-time Latin Grammy Award winner was at the heart of an energetic dance ensemble, sporting a bright yellow outfit to match.
This was followed by fireworks, as no ceremony is completed without them.
