The former The Voice Coach decided to show off her flexibility.

By Jackie Manno

Her hips may not lie, but they can surely bend. 

How to Watch

Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

Former The Voice Coach Shakira (Seasons 4 and 6) has proved once again that her flexibility is unmatched. On September 10, the "She Wolf" singer posted some seriously impressive photos of her contorting her body to the extreme while at choreography rehearsals for the MTV VMA Awards. 

In the third photo, she managed to put both of her legs behind her head for a truly impressive feat. We also caught a glimpse of her holding a guitar in front of a microphone.

"Adivinen de que canción es esta pose?" she wrote, which translates to: "Guess which song this pose is from?" She added, "Can’t wait for Tuesday!"

“Shakira is a true global force who continues to inspire and influence the masses with her unique, musical prowess,” Bruce Gillmer, Paramount and chief content officer, Music, Paramount+, said in a press release, via Hola!. “She’s a trailblazer for women around the world and one of the first artists to lead the globalization of Latin music. Her massive impact across the musical landscape will be long-lasting as she continues to create and entertain at the highest level.”

Shakira opens up about the healing powers of music

In a 2022 interview with Elle, the singer opened up about how creating music helps her stay balanced.

"It just helps me process my emotions and make sense of them. And it helps me to heal. I think it’s the best medicine, and along with the love of my family and my kids that sustains me, music and writing music is definitely one of those tools—one of the few tools I have for survival in extreme conditions. It is sort of like driftwood for a man drowning in the sea, that piece of wood that you hang on to when you feel like you’re drowning. I think that music is a life raft. There have been days when I had to pick up the pieces of me from the floor. And the only way to do that, to actually do that, has been through music. You know, to really, like, put myself back together and to see myself in the mirror and know that I am a mom and my kids depend on me," she said.
