Spotted: Black Eyed Peas And John Legend Prepare For The World Cup

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

There are less than two days until the 2010 FIFA World Cup kicks off, which means that the international community will be treated to a month of thrilling soccer action. The 32 teams who will battle on the pitch over the next few weeks represent the most balanced field the tournament has seen in decades. Though there are a handful of perpetual favorites like Spain, Brazil and England, but there are also plenty of dark horses who could separate themselves from the pack (like the Netherlands, Chile, Portugal and the United States) and threaten to take home the trophy. But before the matches begin, the music has to kick things off. On Thursday night (June 10), the World Cup opening ceremony will begin the tournament with a host of international stars like Alicia Keys, John Legend and the Black Eyed Peas. The latter two gathered in Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa to prepare for the big event.

The Black Eyed Peas and Legend weren't the only international stars making waves, as La Roux performed live on "Good Morning America" and 30 Seconds to Mars took the stage in New Zealand. Click here for these photos as well as the entire "Spotted!" archive, which features over 350 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Katy Perry, Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Jessica Simpson, Mariah Carey, 50 Cent and Diddy!
