Copa America is in the United States for the first time in it’s 100-year history, and it’s staging a grand entrance for the opening match. Three musical acts will open the tournament Friday night, taking the stage just before USA and Colombia kickoff the opener. The festivities will begin at 9:00 p.m. Eastern, with the match set to begin at 9:30.

The lineup at Levi’s Stadium features three diverse acts with singles ready for the summer. First up is Latin Grammy award winner J Balvin. His single “Ginza” has been viewed on YouTube more than 584 million times, and he’s likely to perform his latest single “Bobo.” Balvin won the Latin Grammy for Best Urban Song in 2015 with his hit, “Ay Vamos.” American viewers might be more familiar with his voice on the Latino Remix of Justin Beiber’s song, “Sorry.”

Joining Balvin in the festivities is the multitalented Jason Derulo. The platinum-selling artist was recently added as a judge on the network series “So You Think You Can Dance,” and is enjoying single life after his split with model Daphne Joy. Derulo is expected to perform his latest single, “If it Ain’t Love.”

Also joining Balvin and Derulo on stage will be the reggae fusion band MAGIC! Known best for their smash single, “Rude,” MAGIC! is hard at work on their second official studio album. Their sophomore effort is bolstered by their latest single, called “Lay You Down Easy” featuring Sean Paul.

If the audio isn’t your favorite, the opening ceremonies promise to be visually entertaining. The event is produced by FiveCurrents, the company responsible for the opening ceremony at the 2012 and 2014 Olympics.
