Shakira’s hips certainly didn’t lie as she performed the tournament’s national anthem Waka Waka (This Time For Africa).
Far more exciting than the slightly underwhelming final between Spain and Holland - the Colombian singer closed the 2010 competition in spectacular style!
Lighting up the stage in a show-stopping tribal-themed neon outfit with floral wristbands, Shakira performed with a huge backing band and African dancers along with costumed elephants and an incredible light and fireworks display.
But the biggest cheers were saved for former South African president Nelson Mandela and his wife Grace who waved to crowds from the pitch.
