Valerie Broussard of Philadelphia kicked off the holographic concert by performing “Awaken,” a song released earlier in the year to signal the beginning of the League of Legends calendar year. The debut single from augmented reality hip-hop group True Damage, “Giants,” consisting of vocals from Rebecca “Becky G” Marie Gomez, Jeon “Soyeon” So-yeon, Umar “Thutmose” Ibrahim, Jared “Duckwrth” Lee and Keke Palmer was also performed.
