Pitbull is helping to kick off this year's World Cup soccer tournament.  

Mr Worldwide will take the stage at today's World Cup opening ceremony in Sao Paulo, Brazil alongside Jennifer Lopez and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte.  The trio will perform the official World Cup anthem "We Are One (Olé Ola)." 

Earlier this week, there were reports that J. Lo would miss the performance, but the singer's rep made sure the world knew that Lopez would be there.  The ceremony will kick off at 2:15 p.m. Eastern, less than two hours before Brazil and Croatia take the field for the first match.  ESPN is airing the match at 4:00 p.m. Eastern.
