World Cup Taps Shakira, Santana and Wyclef for Closing Ceremony

Shakira performs at the Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 18 in Las Vegas.

Before the final two squads in the World Cup face off on July 13 in Brazil, FIFA will get fans pumped up for the last winner-take-all match with the customary closing ceremony.
Organizers unveiled the ceremony's entertainment on Thursday, tapping Shakira, Santana and Wyclef, and Brazilian stars Carlinhos Brown, Alexandre Pires and Ivete Sangaloto, to perform.

Shakira, making her third consecutive appearance at the World Cup since 2006, will perform "La La La (Brazil 2014)" with Brown. Meanwhile, Santana, Wyclef and Pires will take on "Dar Um Jeito (We Will Find a Way)," which is this year's World Cup anthem. Sangaloto and Pires will add homegrown zest with a medley of Brazilian songs.
There's no word on whether "Hips Don't Lie" sensation Shakira will recruit backups from the Colombian players, who last month used their hips to celebrate a goal and caused an announcer to blurt out, "Move over, Shakira, there's a new Colombian No. 1."
Shakira's "La La La" music video features flags and fans from countries participating in the World Cup, and athletes are shown playing soccer during some portions of the clip.

"I have an intricate relationship with football for obvious reasons, and I truly understand what the World Cup means to so many people, myself included," Shakira said in a statement. "I just feel so grateful for the opportunity to come back to perform ... it feels right."
The opening ceremony featured Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Claudia Leitte.
