The “New Corinthians Stadium” in Sao Paulo has bee choosen to host the opening ceremony which is promising to be one the biggest showpiece curtain raiser in the recently history.

Jennifer Lopez performances was the only thing keeping the ceremony together, otherwise it was not only waste of time but was bit of awkward and embarrassing.
