The singing! The dancing! The absolute burn on her ex. We lived and she ATE.

Talk about accepting an award with pizazz. This is probably a first, can you recall anyone else cool enough to literally crowd surf their way into accepting an award? Shakira performed “Hips Don’t Lie,” “Objection (Tango)”, “Whenever, Wherever,” and more in her show-stopping Video Vanguard Performance, presented by Toyota. The entire audience joined into to sing-a-long to her latest song with producer Bizarapp. Everyone has heard “BZRP Music Sessions #53,” by now. With entire stadiums singing it to her ex, it should come as no surprise when a celeb and lucky fan attended jam packed VMA kicked into high gear when the track hit. Everyone was singing and is a further testament to Shakira’s social impact and star power.

Let us know what you thought of her jaw dropping performance.
