At the recent Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime show, singer Shakira performed the Colombian dance called the Champeta before sending out a challenge for others to do it. One celebrity who took up the challenge was television personality, Kelly Ripa.


Ripa, 49, recently showed off some fierce dance moves by taking on Shakira’s Champeta challenge. On Wednesday, the “Live With Kelly and Ryan” co-host took to Instagram to share a video of herself and two of her friends performing a routine for the Colombian dance.

The song that played in the background was "The Water Dance" by Chris Porter featuring Pitbull. Ripa captioned the post writing: “#wcw with my sisters in the @shakira Champeta challenge. 3 mothers. 7 children. 36 pack…”

This wasn’t the first time that the television host has shown love to Shakira. Before the Super Bowl, Ripa took to Instagram to share a video of herself jokingly auditioning to be featured in the singer’s halftime set.

In the clip, the star performed a choreographed set with her trainer Anna Kaiser who was also featured in the Champeta challenge video. Kaiser also happens to be Shakira’s trainer too.
