Red Hot Chili Peppers, CeeLo Green and James Corden Entertain at L.A. Rams' Home Opener
Corden danced with the Rams Cheerleaders and the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed a pregame show at the L.A. Coliseum home game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
The NFL has returned to Los Angeles with a bang.
The Rams and the Seattle Seahawks are underway in the first regular-season game in L.A. since Dec. 24, 1994.
The gridiron matchup is only part of the action on a sweltering day at the Coliseum, where LeBron James is hobnobbing with Rams owner Stan Kroenke and a litany of entertainment celebrities on the sideline.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers played a high-energy pregame show for the packed stadium, with Rams fanatic Flea leading the way on bass. Frontman Anthony Kiedis sported a Jared Goff jersey until he stripped down to football pants to announce the Rams' starting defensive lineup.
After CeeLo Green sang the national anthem, the Rams marched down the field and scored their first points of the season on a field goal by Greg Zuerlein.
The Seattle Seahawks again linked arms during the national anthem, while the Rams assumed their usual line of players on the sideline. Defensive lineman Robert Quinn again raised his right fist in the air during the anthem. He was not joined by receiver Kenny Britt, who raised his fist before the Rams' opener.
With the recent New York and New Jersey explosions, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck released a statement asking people in Los Angeles to "stay vigilant" on Sunday, being that both the home opener and the Emmys are occurring in Los Angeles.
With the Primetime Emmys drawing most of Hollywood tonight, stars including James Corden, Magic Johnson and Elizabeth Banks are showing their support for the Rams at the L.A. Coliseum. Ty Burrell told the Los Angeles Times he plans on attending the first half of the Rams game before hitting the Emmys. “I don’t think I’ve ever changed into a tuxedo in a car before,” said the Modern Family star.
