More surprising is the YouTube slayage of Enrique Iglesias. He also has two entries in the top 10 with current smash “Bailando” and Spanish language hit “El Perdedor”. The high ranking of The Chainsmokers‘ “#Selfie” underlines its online popularity, while Pitbull cements his status as Mr. Worldwide by racking up hundreds of millions of views for “We Are One”.

After Germany and Argentina duked it out during yesterday’s nail-biting 2014 FIFA World Cup final (congrats, Germany!), the “Empire” songstress hit the stage in front of an estimated 1 billion viewers at home to perform a rousing and colorful rendition of her latest hit: “La La La (Brazil 2014),” a special World Cup reworking of her uptempo Shakira EDM anthem. (The lyric “the whole world is watching” has never been more accurate.)
Donning a sexy red dress not unlike her “Can’t Remember To Forget You” get-up, the seasoned vet happily belted her joyous tune and hip-thrusted across the stage alongside Brazilian musician Carlinhos Brown and dozens of dummers, doing her best to unite the world in celebration.
The performance is now the Colombian pop diva’s third FIFA fete in a row, following 2006′s “Hips Don’t Lie” with Wyclef Jean and 2010′s “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa),” confirming that no matter which team wins the World Cup every four years, it’s Shakira who ultimately reigns supreme time and time again.

When it comes to football anthems, FIFA should stick with the Colombian goddess. Her 2010 effort “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” sold four million copies around the globe and is the eight most-watched video of all time with 660 million+ views on YouTube. While not quite as catchy, “La La La (Brazil 2014)” will do nicely. As for the video? Nobody kicks sand with more grace than Shakira, as she proves (yet again) in the video up top. More »
Usher, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton still have horses in the race (these horses’ names being Josh Kaufman, Christina Grimmie and Jake Worthington, respectively), and Shakira is just along for the long ride.
Kicking off the show, Voice “family” members OneRepublic perform “Love Runs Out.” Front man Ryan Tedder had a much larger role in the Season 5 finale, penning Tessanne Chin’s sendoff song “Tumbling Down,” so this limited involvement was a bit of a downgrade. No matter: The Voice is a moving target of rotating rules, so there’s always next year! More »
“I can’t even talk,” Josh exclaimed as confetti fell overhead after his victory. “I’m overwhelmed, I’m surprised, I’m happy, I’m relieved.” And so are we, Josh. So are we. More »
The contestants, truly the unsung heroes of this whole extravaganza, are tasked on Monday (May 19) with singing three songs to close out the competition section of their season. Christina Grimmie, Jake Worthington and Josh Kaufman pile on a coach duet, a throwback performance and one final song in their musical plea to be voted The Voice.
But first! Blake and Shakira perform their new single, “Medicine” from Shakira’s self-titled album. Shakira’s outfit leads one to believe that she must have gotten lost on the way to the Dancing with the Stars finale, and Blake’s signature awkward dance moves make it clear that he should stay as far away from DWTS as possible.

The festivities started with Pitbull croaking his way through the official 2014 World Cup song “We Are One (Ole Ola),” before Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte did what they could to salvage the thing. What we’re saying is, it can only go uphill from there. And it soon did, as Iggy Azalea teamed up with both Charli XCX and Ariana Grande for a pair smash hits.

The blond bombshell will perform an unspecified song at tonight’s (May 18) event. The safest bet is current US single “Empire”, which is turning out to be something of a slow burn hit, but she could surprise us and perform international single “Dare (La La La)”. That song is being used to promote the 2014 World Cup and is certain to become a massive hit in her biggest markets (Europe and South America). More »
