Jennifer Lopez makes World Cup U-turn to perform at opening ceremony

Jennifer Lopez makes a U-turn by opting to perform at the World Cup opening ceremony on Thursday.

Jennifer Lopez will perform in tomorrow's World Cup opening ceremony, despite originally pulling out of the show due to 'production issues'.

FIFA confirmed last weekend that the American popstar would not feature during the show to mark the start of the tournament.

However, it appears that Lopez has made a U-turn and will perform alongside rapper Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte to perform World Cup anthem 'We Are One (Ole Ola)'.

A spokesperson told People magazine: "She will be there. Jennifer has always wanted to participate in the World Cup opening ceremonies.

"We have been trying to work out scheduling and logistics. Any statements to the contrary were premature. Jennifer would not want to disappoint her fans or fans of futbol."

Brazil's Group A clash against Croatia will kick off the tournament tomorrow evening.
