And to celebrate the announcement of his imminent opening performance at The Emirates FA Cup Final, Tinie Tempah got his hands on the last two pairs of tickets and gave them away to two ticketless Crystal Palace and Manchester United fans.
Eagles and Red Devils fans were keeping eager eyes on Tinie’s and his #TinieTakeover. Clues were shared with fans as to the whereabouts of the tickets, sending fans on an adventure to grab the last remaining pairs of tickets for The Emirates FA Cup Final.
Tinie called on the help of his friend and social media star KSI to find a loving home for the last pairs of tickets. The pair revealed hints and clues to the whereabouts of the last pairs of tickets.
The ecstatic winners located the tickets at the Bullring, Birmingham, halfway between Selhurst Park and Old Trafford.
The Manchester United winner was fan Amy Wagstaff, who was first on the scene to claim the prize. Amy was shortly followed by Alex Munroe, a lifelong Crystal Palace fan who sprinted to the Bullring wearing his shirt and was relieved to be declared the winner after following the @IAmTheFACup clues all morning on Twitter.
Alex informed The FA that he will be taking his mum with him to The Emirates FA Cup Final as she is also a huge Eagles fan.
Manchester United winner Amy was sent on the adventure by her sister Laura, who had been following the clues closely in London, determined that she would be sitting in Wembley Stadium cheering on Manchester United on Saturday.
Tinie Tempah said earlier: “I can't wait to perform at The Emirates FA Cup Final. It’s literally a dream come true and I'm proud to be a part of such a historic final.
"I know the atmosphere will be electric and I’m thrilled to have the chance to get Wembley Stadium amped and spread that energy to every household tuning in to watch across the world.
“Since I was a kid I’ve always been swept away by the excitement of the tournament. The Emirates FA Cup is so unique in the way it brings everyone together to celebrate the magic of our national game.
"I feel extremely lucky to have been able to give away the last two pairs of tickets to Crystal Palace and Man Utd fans – I can’t wait to meet the Alex and Amy on the day.”
The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Choir will be accompanying Tinie Tempah on one of his songs and following his performance they will also sing Abide With Me with the Welsh Guards.
Comprising around 30 members of staff from across the NHS workforce, the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Choir came to prominence when it gained the 2015 Christmas No1 for its charity single, A Bridge Over You.
Following this and closing the proceedings of the opening show, the national anthem will be sung by Karen Harding, known for her 2015 hit single Say Something.
