Watch: Shakira Performs ‘La La La’ At World Cup Closing Ceremony

Published: Sunday 13th Jul 2014 by Sam

Like the antics on the pitch, the musical aspect of the Brazilian World Cup has been action-packed.

Indeed, though Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, and Claudia Leitte‘s ‘We Are One’ was christened the soccer competition’s “official anthem”, most preferred the unofficial offering by Pop superstar Shakira.

So much so was the magnetic pull to her song ‘La La La’ that organisers FIFA seemingly had no choice but to draft her in to perform at today’s Closing Ceremony.

So, after all the ado, how did she fare? Find out below…

Solid.

Although, is it us or have Brazil seriously been a let down with the “spectacle” element of their opening and closing ceremonies?

Like, if there’s one place one would expect to boast all the bells, whistles, and all else in between, it’d be Brazil. Yet, Shaki’s showing and that of Pitbull, J.Lo and co, all felt like rehearsals at the school gymnasium. From the sound, to the camera angles, placement of extras. Subpar.

Not “bad”, but could have been infinitely better.

Your thoughts?

    That was horrible could have been better.

  3. Jesse Rivera July 13, 2014

    Yeah both opening & closing ceremonies were underwhelming. Shakira did the best she could do with what was given to her.

  4. Like Gaga July 13, 2014

    Forgettable 🙁

  5. Kisses Down Low July 13, 2014

    Mess

    • Lana Tropicana July 13, 2014

      Kelly wouldn’t even be able to book a show in the locker room let alone the main stage, so stop.

      • LDNNavi July 13, 2014

        From when Kelly has never even performed at the VMAs I think you should shut your mouth.

  6. Suicide Blonde July 13, 2014

    The world cup has been a disaster, i don’t like the performance but i think is more of a FIFA problem than the performers themselves.

  7. LaLopez July 13, 2014

    That was s***.

  8. Germany Will Win July 13, 2014

    Tacky!

    Next?

  9. SIA July 13, 2014

    WHO??

    SOLID, BASIC AND BORING!

  10. Beyhive Army July 13, 2014

    Nothing beats Madonna and Beyonce’s performance at the NFL Superbowl. Shakira has proven to the world that she is still a 3rd- world class entertainer.

        Bruno Mars is not a female…so sit before jumping to conclusions, @sshat!

      • Truth Tea July 13, 2014

        NFL Superbowl Half Time are for gifted legends!!! #FACT

        AMAs, MTV and BET Awards are for amateurish and wannabe artists like Rihanna, Lana, Nicki, Katy, Ciara, Kelly, Xtina and Mariah…..

      • Brian310 July 13, 2014

        But Nicki and Xtina have performed on the super bowl stage.

      • Lily July 14, 2014

        So what moron @truthtea is saying is that Madonna and Beyoncé are wannabe amateurish artists too cus they’ve performed on the AMAs, MTV etc stages too. Go sit your ass down sybil.

      • There once was a pimp and his h**…. July 14, 2014

    • Gaga’s Monstah July 13, 2014

      Obsessed with Mariah I see?
      You mad at the fact that she is considered a legend and respected by many in the industry while Lady CaCa is considered as a copycat and an attention seeking fame w****

      • La Qoyah July 13, 2014

        Have you seen Chanteuse sales lately? #DEAD

        😀

    • Gaga’s Monstah July 13, 2014

      Gaga achieved more than your Kunty Perry and Rinhanba- the Goat. So…take a number, wait and hoping for the Grammys.

  12. SMH July 13, 2014

    Shakira is boring….why are folks surprised?

  13. juju July 13, 2014

    South Africa’s closing ceremony was beyond this world, you would expect Brazil to do better. Ah well, the same happened with London, they just couldn’t upstage Beijing with the olympics ceremonies.

  14. Gaga’s Monstah July 13, 2014

    Gaga will be performing in space 2015 and slay your favs.
    Just wait…just wait.

    • CommanderKaty July 13, 2014

      She should stay there.

    • LOL July 13, 2014

      I hope she will get a one-way ticket. Irrelevant copycat much. What a waste.

  15. Did Ya say Justin Bieber,Beyoncè,Miley,Lady Gaga,One Direction,Rita Ora,Sam Smith,Lil Kim or Austin Mahone? July 13, 2014
