NBC Universal has announced that Kelly Clarkson and Peyton Manning will join Mike Tirico to host the opening ceremony of the Paris Olympics this summer. 

The duo will bring a fresh perspective to the coverage of the event.

Live coverage of the ceremony begins at 12:00 ET on July 26 on NBC and Peacock. “I'm extremely honored to have a front-row seat. Kelly and I are both fans of the athletes and the opening ceremony of years past," Manning told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday (March 12). "I think there’ll be a lot of emotions for these athletes. I look forward to finding out those stories between now and July and maybe sharing that with the audience.”

The Olympic opening ceremony on the Seine is scheduled for dusk, according to the organizers.

Aiming to live up to the theme "Games Wide Open," the Olympic opening ceremony will take place outdoors in a stadium for the first time.

Along a 6-kilometer (3.7-mile) course, about 10,500 athletes will march on boats on the Seine through the center of the French city.
