Jimmy Barnes To Perform With Diesel, Josh Teskey, Emma Donovan At NRL Grand Final

The NRL has announced the performers for its Grand Final this weekend. Taking place at Sydney’s Accor Stadium on Sunday, 2nd October, both the NRL and NRLW Grand Finals will feature performances from a number of Australian musicians, including Jimmy Barnes, Diesel, Josh Teskey, and more.

The NRLW Grand Final will feature its inaugural pre-show celebrations, with Mahalia BarnesA.GIRL, and Emma Donovan teaming up to perform a rendition of Russell Morris’ ‘The Real Thing’. The NRL Grand Final pre-show will see Jimmy Barnes joined by Diesel, Josh Teskey, and Emma Donovan, who will be pulling double-duty (and also performed at the AFL Grand Final.)

“Grand Final Day is a chance for us to all come together and celebrate with the best of the best,” Barnes said in a statement. “I can’t wait to perform with an exciting all-Australian Pre-Game Show line up in front of a full house again.”

In addition to the aforementioned performers, Moulin Rouge! The Musical star Alinta Chidzey will sing the national anthem, while Australia’s Eurovision 2022 representative Sheldon Riley will also perform. Elsewhere, hip hop outfit Bliss N Eso will be joined by JOY. for a performance of their 2017 single ‘Moments’, which aims to pay tribute to the game’s retiring players.

The 2022 NRL Grand Final will be played between the Penrith Panthers and Parramatta Eels on Sunday, 2nd October. It takes place just over a week after the AFL Grand Final, which saw performances from Robbie Williams, Delta Goodrem, G Flip, Goanna, Tasman Keith, The Temper Trap and more.
