Hips Don’t Lie

Last night, my mom, little sister, hubby and I went to see Shakira at the American Airlines Arena (home of the MIAMI HEAT!!) in downtown Miami. What a concert! There were quite a few surprises. Wyclef Jean entertained the crowd for a while, singing some of his solo hits as well as those with the Fugees. After intermission (which seemed to take forever) Shakira hit the stage just a bit past 9PM. She sang and spoke in English and Spanish, and after about six songs, a very special guest came on stage to sing with her on one her recent hits, La Tortura: Alejandro Sanz. That was completely unexpected, and totally amazing. (Let me go off topic here for a moment and say…THE MAN IS HOT!)
Shakira would not be Shakira if she did not show off her belly dancing moves. There were several performances, backed by sensual, beautiful Middle-Eastern music, and that girl shakes like nobody’s business!
Also worth noting is that the female guitarist in the first picture above is none other than Olgui Chirino, and her proud papa
Willy and stepmom Lisette
were in the first row, having a great time.
The last song was “Hips Don’t Lie”, with Wyclef coming back onstage to sing with her. They were all over the stage, with pink, white and orange confetti flying through the air. It was a big party, Shakira-style.
Here’s the review by the Miami Herald. I told you it was a great show!
