#WorldCup: Jennifer Lopez Turns Up The Heat At Opening Ceremony!!!


Day 1 of the 2014 FIFA World Cup was filled with plenty of entertainment as hordes of football fans tuned in to SuperSport to witness history in the making.  Before kickoff, we saw the passion of the Brazilians on full display as they bellowed out their national anthem for the world to hear at a packed Arena de São Paulo. Neymar did what was expected as he slotted in two goals, however Oscar’s display during the match was almost flawless.

Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte, hogged the the spotlight in their sassy costumes as they performed the official song of the 2014 Fifa World Cup We Are One (Ole Ola)… Oh, and we almost forgot, Pitbull was also part of the act.

One 'phase' of the ceremony saw entertainers dressed as lifesize footballs and referees, as a nod to the start of the 2014 World Cup

The ceremony featured several different 'phases' with some performers dancing to Samba, others on trampolines, others on stilts and some in canoes. Each aspect was designed to reflect a part of Brazilian life

The ceremony started with children, dressed in the colours of the 32 nations, bouncing on trampolines as performers dressed as trees walked around the centre of the stadium

After the energetic performance, the singers walked around the stadium and appeared to be touched by the response from the cheering crowd

Preparations for the opening ceremony, which falls on Brazil¿s Valentine¿s Day, started in March. There were 84 hours of rehearsals, with some 20 hours of artistic work going into each minute of the ceremony

Each of the props used in tonight's ceremony were specially designed with an even weight distribution so as not to cause any damage to the playing surface, which was covered for the opening celebration

Video highlights and memorable bloopers from past World Cups were shown on the big screens at either end of the stadium towards the end of the 30-minute show but not before performers twirled to Brazilian rhythms (pictured)
