Jennifer Lopez to perform at FIFA World Cup 2014 opening

Pop superstar Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo), hundreds of dancers, drummers and gymnasts, and a paraplegic who will kick a football in a robotic suit will deliver a pre-match extravaganza Thursday to open the World Cup.
FIFA announced on Wednesday that Lopez would perform at the event, after it was initially thought she would pull out

"Please, get there early," pleaded Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte. Leitte will perform the official World Cup song, We Are One, at the opening ceremony along with Lopez, rapper Pitbull and Brazilian drumming collective Olodum in the ceremony's grand finale.
 
We Are One has been viewed more than 75 million times on YouTube, though some critics have panned it as a disappointing follow-up to World Cup classics like Ricky Martin's Cup of Life in 1998 and Shakira's Waka Waka in 2010.
More than 60,000 fans will be in Sao Paulo's Corinthians Arena, including 12 heads of state, and around one billion people are expected to watch the opening ceremony and match between Brazil and Croatia on TV
