TikTok Challenge
Shakira shows off her TikTok dance moves on The Tonight Show. You probably already knew Shakira is a better dancer than Jimmy Fallon, but it’s still fun to see them battle it out.

The Colombian singer stopped by The Tonight Show this week to talk about her new job as a judge on the upcoming NBC series, Dancing with Myself. In honor of the show, Shakira showed off her dance skills in the form of a dance battle against the show’s host in a segment titled, “Watch It Once TikTok Challenge.”

During the show, the musican joined Fallon in replicating two trending TikTok dances, one choreographed to “Jiggle Jiggle” by Duke and Jones with Louis Theroux and one by Shakira herself.

Even though she knew she would probably win, Shakira provided an important lesson before starting the battle: “I’ve learned something, never underestimate your enemies, so I know I have to be careful here.”

In the end, she came out victorious, but she still had some kind words for Jimmy.

“You’re Shakira,” Fallon said. “It’s not fair.”

She responded, “I’m very impressed by you. It wasn’t bad at all.”

Following the hilarious dance-off, the star went on to discuss her latest single, “Te Felicito,” with Rauw Alejandro. She explained to the late night host why she doesn’t put out new music very often, saying that her priority is her kids. But, she added, “when I do it, I focus. I had to dedicate like three months to just prepare the video.”

“Te Felicito” dropped following “Don’t Wait Up,” a song Shakira released last summer, which saw her experimenting with futuristic electro-pop production just like the Rauw collab. She is currently working on her next studio album.

Dancing With Myself is set to premiere on NBC on May 31.

No one above her! Shakira has proven more than once that she is an accomplished dancer. She, who always rocks the choreography of her clips, was on the famous couch of “The Tonight Show Show”, with Jimmy Fallon, where she was challenged by the presenter to reproduce some challenges that are viral on TikTok. The Colombian star, of course, didn't look bad and played the game.

Promoting the reality show "Dancing With Myself", in which she is part of the judging panel, the star talked about the program that premieres on May 31, in addition to highlighting her latest single, "Te Felicito", in partnership with Rauw Alejandro. According to her, the visual concept of the work came from her children, Sasha and Milan, the fruit of her marriage to Spanish football player Gerard Piqué.

Between conversations, Shakira took on a challenge proposed by the presenter: both would have to watch choreographies that are trending in the short `video` app and play them on the spot. The singer showed her skills in a battle against the presenter in the “Watch It Once TikTok Challenge” board.

During the show, the two replicated two dances from TikTok trends, one choreographed to “Jiggle Jiggle”, by Duke and Jones with Louis Theroux and another by Shakira herself – after all, in “Te Felicito”, the star reproduces the famous dance of the robot, which became popular with the `public`.

In the end, she emerged victorious, but she still had a few kind words for Jimmy. “You are Shakira. “It's not fair,” Fallon said. “I'm very impressed with you. It wasn't bad at all," she said, further explaining why she doesn't release music very often. According to her, her priority is her children. But, she added, “when I do that, I focus. I had to dedicate like three months just to prepare the `video`,” she `said`.

It is worth remembering that “Dancing With Myself is inspired by the viral dances that circulate the internet and create trends. With this, dancers of all areas and ages face fun challenges designed and demonstrated by the judges.

With this, each competitor is isolated in a `type` of box and has little time to rehearse and create their own vision for the challenge, making it more special. The dancers can get feedback and tips from judges Shakira, Nick Jonas and Liza Koshy, but in the end the audience decides for the best.
