Shakira Stops Gyrating For One Second to Sing ‘Santa Baby’

Shakira sang the flirty Christmas classic “Santa Baby” last night at Rockefeller Center, finally giving her pelvis a break from performing. We almost didn’t recognize her without her belly-dance-cum-biomechanics-experiment hip contortions, not to mention that vintage ’80s combover on her head.

Her performance will air on December 2 as part of ABC’s 12th Annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center, but in case you’re missing Shakira’s gyrations (we know we already do), check out her Good Morning America performances of “She Wolf” and “Give It Up To Me,” which sound just as good at 8 am as any other time of the day: “She Wolf”

“Give It Up To Me”
