Sexy Hip-Shaking Shakira Steals The Show At World Cup Closing Ceremony
Shakira helped to get the party started in South Africa on Sunday when she kicked off the 2010 World Cup closing ceremony with an energetic performance of the tournament's official anthem, "Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)."
The Colombian superstar headlined the opening celebrations in Soweto last month and she took center stage again on Sunday to sing the track with local group FreshlyGround, ahead of the final between Spain and the Netherlands.
Shakira's hip-shaking set came after a lights and fireworks show, which also featured a military flyover, to bid farewell to the 2010 competition in spectacular fashion.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo also performed.
But the sports fans at Soccer City reserved their loudest cheers and rapturous applause for former South African president Nelson Mandela, who waved to the crowds from the pitch with his wife, Grace, by his side.
It was Mandela's first official public appearance at the tournament since his great-granddaughter was killed in a car accident after the World Cup opening concert, prompting him to decide against attending the first game between the host nation and Mexico due to the tragedy.
Spain beat the Netherlands with a last-gasp goal to make the final score 1-0 and be crowned World Cup champions.
