Stars Unite For World Cup

Shakira, Alicia Keys And The Black Eyed Peas Take To The Stage In South Africa

With just one day to go until the sporting event of the year, some of the biggest names in the music industry united to kick off the World Cup in style!

Setting the battle away from the football pitch was Fergie, who scored with fans in a revealing silver and gold gladiator-style outfit, teamed with some rather scary looking bejewelled claws.

The popstar was joined on stage at the Orlando Stadium in South Africa by her Black Eyed Peas bandmates and mum-to-be Alicia Keys.

Last but not least was Shakira, who shook her famous hips in a skimpy cut-out leotard and grass skirt.

Wowing the massive crowd with her sexy moves, the singer closed the event by belting out the official World Cup anthem ‘Waka Waka (This Time For Africa).”

South African President Jacob Zuma also made an appearance on stage to thank South Africans for welcoming World Cup supporters, and asked them to "show warmness for the whole duration of the tournament.”

The World Cup kicks off tomorrow (Friday June 11) with hosting team South Africa vs Mexico.

But for those of you not suffering World Cup fever, don’t fear, you still have your MTV! Check out the video clip below…
