Shakira will be the star of a brief closing ceremony at Sunday's World Cup final between Italy and France in Berlin.
The Colombian pop singer will perform her hit "Hips Don't lie" during the 11-minute long ceremony while veteran group Il Divo will sing the official World Cup anthem "The Time of Our Lives".
"We don't want a rigid, serious ceremony but instead want to show that Germany is a country where you can dance and celebrate," said Dieter Brell, the man who developed the ceremony concept, on Thursday in Berlin.
"I think it's enough time to ignite that flame."
The show will take place on the terrace at the Marathon Gate end of the Olympic stadium as no activity is permitted on the pitch prior to the match itself.
Around 400 actors will be on hand masquerading as a wild horde of fans to help increase the atmosphere in the stadium. The performance will be choreographed by Doug Jack, the man responsible for the closing ceremony at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin earlier this year.
Apart from Shakira, there will also be a big-name appearance at half-time when Spanish tenor Placido Domingo takes to the stage to perform "Willkommen bei uns", a song written by his son Placido Domingo jr.
The opera star, an avid football fan, has attended every World Cup final since 1982, when Italy beat Germany 3-1 in Rome.
