ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., May 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- World-renowned actor Megan Fox defeated multi-platinum-selling music mogul DJ Khaled in front of more than 1 Million total viewers on Wednesday night, in a 90-minute Fortnite battle to kick off LG Electronics USA's Only On OLED, a campaign featuring exclusive events and moments in gaming, sports and movies on LG's critically acclaimed LG OLED TVs.
Live streamed on professional esports team Evil Geniuses' Twitch Channel, DJ Khaled was coached by Evil Geniuses talent Justin "FearItSelf" Kats, while champion Megan Fox was supported by legendary Evil Geniuses Counter-Strike coach Wilton "Zews" Prado. LG Smart TV owners now have exclusive access to behind-the-scenes moments, additional content from the Showdown between Megan and DJ Khaled, plus the ability to watch it whenever they'd like on LG's exclusive FOMO Channel app. Future Celebrity Gaming Showdown participants and battles will be announced throughout the year.
The two superstars engaged in playful smack talk leading up to and during the competition, and the pair was even joined by Megan's rockstar boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly during the event, who helped cheer her on as she took down DJ Khaled. Despite losing to Khaled in Round 1, Megan ultimately came out on top in Round 2 and 3, crowning her the Fortnite winner.
Only on OLED features unparalleled access to a live celebrity gaming face-off series, docu-style short films featuring professional star athletes and exclusive sneak peeks at never-before-seen content from some of this year's most anticipated movie releases, available only on LG TV's FOMO Channel app on its webOS smart TV platform.
Beyond gaming entertainment, Only on OLED will also deliver exclusive sports and movie experiences featuring star athletes and some of the most anticipated movie releases of 2021. Launching this spring, Only on OLED will debut two bespoke short films featuring professional football and basketball superstars taking fans behind-the-scenes for a glimpse into the story behind the player.

Experts worldwide have hailed LG OLED as the best TV technology ever, thanks to its unique ability to create its own light. Only OLED features over 8.2 million self-lit pixels that can be individually controlled, resulting in the deepest black levels, greater detail in darker areas, and rich colors for superior and realistic picture quality.
