The dance routine, which was choreographed to “The Water Dance” by Chris Porter featuring Pitbull, showed off the incredible dance moves of Kelly Ripa and her posse.

Kelly Ripa has been a fan of Shakira and her music for a while, which was why she was excited to see that Shakira would be performing during the halftime show. Before the Super Bowl even aired, Kelly and Anna posted a video in which they joked about how they were auditioning to be included in Shakira’s dance troupe for the show.

“Answering the call for the she-wolf Shakira Super Bowl audition halftime,” Kelly wrote, along with the corresponding hashtags to get as much engagement as possible from her thousands of fans.
Ripa shared the video of her take on the Shakira dance challenge on the same day that she revealed a story about her husband, Mark Consuelos, surprising her outside of the gym.
“I left the gym, and he’s standing outside of the gym. I have my earbuds in, and I hear, ‘Hey sexy.’ And it’s so funny. It never occurs to me that this person is talking to me, but it sounds too close. And I was like, ‘I’m about to be mugged by somebody flirting with somebody, who doesn’t even have the thoughtfulness to pay attention to me while they’re mugging me!’ So I look up, and my husband is there. And he was talking to me as it turns out. He had flowers for me, and he said, ‘I have to tell you something. It dawned on me as I was flying home. Today is 26 years to the day since we met.’ Isn’t that crazy?”
Although Kelly Ripa may be known for her daytime talk show career now, she has a lively life as a dancer and actress.
