Update: Jennifer Lopez will perform.
Today the World Cup kicks off at 2:15 ET with the opening ceremony in São Paulo, followed by the first match between the host nation Brazil and Croatia. The festivities are 25 minutes of amazing acrobatics, singing, dancing and more. The lineup features Pitbull accompanied by drum group Olodum and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte, who sings for just a few seconds at the end. Jennifer Lopez was set to perform as well, but she totally bailed last minute because of “production issues”.
According to FIFA.com, for every minute of the 25 that the show is set to last, 20 hours of preparation have taken place. But then again who the hell actually believes anything FIFA says?
