Jennifer Lopez will be at this year's FIFA World Cup after all!

Earlier this week, reports surfaced that the "First Love" singer had to cancel her appearance at the event's opening ceremonies due to unspecified production issues.

"Jennifer has always wanted to participate in the World Cup opening ceremonies," Lopez's rep told People.

"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. She will be there."

J.Lo also confirmed the news via her Twitter last night. "Smile... ," the 44-year-old superstar wrote, along with a selfie.

Lopez will perform 2014's World Cup song, "We Are One (Ole Ola)," with Pitbull and Claudia Leitte on Thursday for the finale of the opening ceremony.
