Let the games begiiiiin!!!

Yesterday (June 12) was the kickoff for the 2014 World Cup in São Paulo, Brazil, and Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, and Brazilian pop star Claudia Leitte hit the stage for the opening ceremony.

While standing on a huge stage shaped like an open flower, the three performed the World Cup anthem “We Are One (Ole Ola),” surrounded by drummers and dancers. Jennifer Lopez hyped the crowd in a glittery green leotard while doing the traditional Brazilian Samba. Pitbull, who who repped the home team by wearing a Brazilian jersey, emerged from the center of the stage with Jennifer, while Claudia broke out some saucy dance moves.
