Jennifer Lopez heads from Bronx to Brazil for World Cup performance

After a triumphant concert in the Bronx, Jennifer Lopez is next hitting the stage in Brazil. 



J. Lo will be performing at the World Cup opening ceremony, her rep confirms, after FIFA announced earlier this week that she wouldn't make it. 



She'll sing the cup's official tune "We Are One" with Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte. 



The opening match kicks off Thursday between Brazil and Croatia.
