The opening ceremony kicked off with a performance by the wildly popular virtual K-pop group K/DA, which features Akali, Ahri, Evelynn, and Kai'Sa. The group played "More," the second single from its EP "All Out."

Next up came a dance routine set to "Take Over," the official song of Worlds 2020 featuring Jeremy McKinnon, MAX, and Henry. After that, the ceremony ran through a medley of past Worlds anthems. The show culminated in a virtual rendering of League of Legends champion Galio appearing on stage, towering over the competitors.

When the ceremony wrapped up, Damwon Gaming and Suning Gaming played out a 3-1 set in which Damwon earned the title of Worlds 2020 champion.
