It looks like she's in after all. 

Despite rumors to the contrary, Jennifer Lopez will perform the 2014 FIFA World Cup official anthem "We Are One (Ole Ola)" at the Brazil 2014 Thursday opener, her rep told the Daily Mail

"Jennifer has always wanted to participate in the World Cup opening ceremonies," her rep said. "We have been trying to work out scheduling and logistics. Any statements to the contrary were premature," he added. 

FIFA had announced on Monday that the former "American Idol" judge would skip the ceremony, citing "production issues." However, her rep said Tuesday, "Jennifer would not want to disappoint her fans or fans of futbol," and assured "she will be there."

Jennifer Lopez will perform the World Cup anthem along with Pitbull and Claudia Leitte. 

The FIFA World Cup will be held in Brazil from June 12 to July 13. For a full World Cup 2014 broadcast TV schedule, click here.
