Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Claudia Leitte perform onstage during the 2014 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 18, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Pitbull and Billboard Award Icon Award winner Jennifer Lopez, along with Claudia Leitte, performed 'We Are One (Ole Ola)" at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, opening the show with a bang.

Pitbull began the tune with several scantily clad dancers backing him up, then kicked it over to Lopez, whose gold-fringed outfit sparkled in the lights. Leitte finished out the song.

The performance relied heavily on soccer imagery, since "We Are One" is also the official 2014 World Cup anthem. The trio will perform the song at the World Cup opener in Sao Paulo.

Lopez will accept the Icon Award later in the broadcast.
