In addition, Bryan Adams, k.d. Lang and Nikki Yanofsky will also attend aboriginal-themed festivity along with skiers and snowboarders.

Who will likely be performing at the opening ceremony of 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics on Friday, February 12 have been unveiled. Nelly Furtado and Sarah McLachlan are among the rumored musical guests and reportedly have been spotted at the dress rehearsals for the show.

Other suggested performers include Bryan Adams, k.d. Lang and Nikki Yanofsky. Bryan will perform with one of the female singers, k.d. may entertain the audience with one of the singles from her latest album "Recollection", and Nikki is expected to deliver the opening anthem.

In addition to the singing performances, the event will also treat sport mania with aerial acrobatics which include skiers or snowboarders jumping through Olympic rings. Formally opened by Governor General of Canada Michaelle Jean, it will begin with the arrival of athletes from every competing country with Team Canada entering the stadium last.

Meanwhile, who will be lighting the Olympic cauldron at the aboriginal-themed festivity is yet to be revealed. Rumor has it, hockey legend Wayne Gretzky will come forward for the duty.

The opening show will be held at B.C. Place Stadium starting 6 P.M. PST/9 P.M. EST and will be broadcast by NBC. Music Video for "We Are the World" remake which features Michael Jackson is scheduled to be premiered at this event.
