Shakira's performance last night at the MTV Video Music Awards, held at the Prudential Center in Newark (New Jersey), will go down in the history of this awards ceremony, which since 1984 has recognized the best `video` clips in the music industry. The Colombian swept away a review of some of the best songs of her career, which she combined with three of her latest songs, which have already become global superhits. Shakira's performance was so spectacular that Taylor Swift herself, the big winner of the night with nine awards, couldn't help but get up to dance and applaud, absorbed in a performance full of passion, dance and energy.

Shakira, who has become the first Latin artist to receive the Vanguard award - which recognizes the contributions and impact of music `videos` on popular culture - and who also won the award for best Latin `video` for TQG alongside Karol G , saved the best of the night for the performance.

The singer began with the English version of Loba (She Wolf), a song she released in 2009 and which was also selected for the Super Bowl show, which she performed alongside Jennifer Lopez. The She Wolf `video` is one of her most viewed `videos` and has accumulated more than 336 million views on YouTube. This song was received by music critics of the time as a change in Colombian music towards more sensual and daring music.

Shakira continued with Te felicito, her first song of the 'post-Piqué' era, with which the artist was able to demonstrate that her dancing skills and her peculiar hip movement are still intact, after 33 years of career. Surrounded by an army of male and female dancers, the singer showed off with all kinds of dance steps and demonstrated that there is no artist who moves like her.

Combining songs in English and Spanish throughout the performance, Shakira continued with the English version of Te ano, te aviso Objetion (tango), which belongs to her album Servicio de Lavandería (2001). It is the first song that the singer wrote in English. At the time when Shakira triumphed with this song, Emilio Estefan was leading his career. It was Emilio, along with Gloria Estefan, who convinced the singer that she needed to take the `step` of writing songs in English because her success could be global. They weren't wrong.

Next, it was the turn of Whenever, Wherever, (2001), one of the most important songs of his career and with which he managed to get into the pockets of the Spanish public in the early 2000s. By the time he performed Hips don' right after t lie, Newark's Prudential Center was already fully up and dancing. "In Barranquilla she dances like that," the singer shouted, to make her Latin roots clear to the American public. Among her attendees, her two sons Sasha and Milan Piqué enjoyed her mother's performance, from whom they `did` not leave each other all night. They also posed with her on the red carpet and with the awards.

As it could not be otherwise, he closed the show with BZRP Music Sessions #53, a song with which he ended up launching himself to the `public`. A perfect closing for a performance of 10 minutes and 53 seconds of pure enjoyment and enjoyment. Also a good reminder that Shakira's career is long, diverse and multicultural. She has earned being one of the most important Latin pop divas in history.

Versace was also the brand chosen by Shakira to pose on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards. The Colombian wore a golden mermaid-style dress with a low back. Shakira did not leave empty-handed and she took the award for best collaboration with Karol G for her song TQG and the Vanguardia Michael Jackson award.

Shakira came accompanied by her two children Sasha and Milan Piqué, from whom she only left to make history with her performance at the gala and to go up on stage to collect the award. The children's looks, like their mother's, are signed by Versace.
