Every four years, athletes from all corners of the earth gather to play the most popular sport in the world - soccer, er, football, er, kick rock in net game.
But before the players can take the field, we all must sit through a totally head-scratching ceremony to open the World Cup!
Well, Brazil did not disappoint in the WTF department. The show they put on in Sao Paulo today!
Here are the most bizarre moments that we spotted during the 2014 World Cup opening ceremonies!
Woohoo! World Cup, baby!
Jennifer Lopez joined Pitbull and Brazilian singer Cláudia Leitte onstage to kick off the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Brazil today! And she looked SPECTACULAR!
The singer flashed her famous curves in a forest green bodysuit completely decorated with dangling beads and shiny crystals, just like something you'd see a partier wear during Carnaval!
It even had a triangular boob window and side cut-outs! Soooo HAWT!
We especially love that J.Lo didn't skimp on the rest of her outfit and wore rhinestone stockings and silver booties!
An electric ensem truly worthy of Brazil!

Well that's certainly one way to get things started!
Today marks the beginning of the highly anticipated 2014 World Cup as Croatia prepares to take on Brazil in their own backyard!
But before the players took the field, Pitbull got things started with a little help from Jennifer Lopez and Cláudia Leitte as they performed the official song of the World Cup, We Are One!
Nooo! The World Cup just won’t be the same!!!
Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull scored the official FIFA World Cup anthem, but the songstress won’t be singing it at the actual opening ceremony in Sao Paulo, Brazil!
Apparently there are “production issues” that can’t be fixed before Thursday, so the show just won’t go on. Or at least the part of the show involving J. Lo won’t!
Pitbull popped the 2014 Billboard Music Awards' musical cherry!
How appropriate that they chose to kick off the show with the official song of the FIFA World Cup!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Pitbull, Claudia Leitte, and Icon Jennifer Lopez pulling some Beyoncé moves performing We Are One (Ole Ola)!
Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez are inviting the whole world to play! And the world apparently accepted their invitation!
With help from Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte and a few hundred world class athletes, they gave the official song of the 2014 FIFA World Cup a video that is as much a love letter to soccer (sorry, football!) as it is to music!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see We Are One (Ole Ola) and wave YOUR flag from side to side!
If there's one person who knows how to get the iHeartRadio Music Awards started, it's Get It Started singer Mr. 305!!
Yup, Pitbull & G.R.L. just stormed on to the stage and blew our minds with a wild rendition of Wild Wild Love!
Ch-ch-check out the performance (above)!
We don't know how Mr. Worldwide plans on burying our bone in his backyard while he's on a boat, but we cannot wait to watch him try!
Either way, Pitbull hearts radio & we heart him!!!
