Disney Family Singalong Volume II: Fans marvel at 'ageless' Shakira but call her out for lipsyncing
The singer reprised her song 'Try Everything' from 'Zootopia' but viewers weren't having any of it
Columbian pop icon Shakira dropped by the 'Disney Family Singalong' to reprise her song 'Try Everything' from the film 'Zootopia'. Unfortunately, fans were not impressed with her efforts.
One viewer was dealing with a rather odd phenomenon, as they asked "Why do I burst out laughing everytime i see shakira," while another was evidently traumatized by the singer's performance and stated, "Shakira gives me war flashbacks." And one viewer wondered, "Why does Shakira sound like she has loogie in the back of her throat?"
One severely enraged viewer tweeted, "THIS IS THE LITERAL WORST SONG FROM ANY DISNEY MOVIE!!!! THIS ISN'T MUSIC!!! SHUT UP SHAKIRA #DisneyFamilySingalong."
As another pointed out, however, "Lowkey, wasn't Shakira's "Try Anything" from Zootopia a HUGE global hit? #DisneyFamilySingalong." The song debuted and peaked at number 63 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was a certified two times platinum in the United States by RIAA for sales exceeding 2,000,000 units. It was also nominated for Best Song Written For Visual Media at the 59th Grammy Awards. So this viewer is technically correct.
Some fans of Shakira were upset with her singing for an entirely different reason: There wasn't any of it.
"I had like 3 tweets on my drafts saying how shakira ate that, how she served vocals and shit just for her to lip sync and do it really bad. The energy on her face didn’t match the energy of the song and she was ahead of the track Chile. At least she played the drums," stated one fan, while another simply said, "I thought shakira was gonna sing." "This is literally just the original track playing and Shakira pretending to actually be creative. It's so laughably bad. Being back the Broadway stars! #DisneyFamilySingalong," tweeted one angry viewer.
Regardless, fans were ecstatic that the singer chose to play the drums, tweeting, Aw HELL YEAH SHAKIRA BUSTIN OUT THE DRUMS."
Despite the general dislike for her performance on the Singalong, though, Shakira was still a hit among viewers for one very important reason: her looks.
"She looks and sounds incredible @shakira #DisneySingalong," declared one viewer, while others commented, "Shakira has. not. aged. #DisneyFamilySingalong." Others wondered, "Is #Shakira aging backwards?"
And many others tweeted hopefully, "Waiting for Shakira to break out the tongue thing on the @DisneySingalong." But as fans took notice that "Shakira isn't dressed like she was at the Super Bowl," it became obvious that Shakira was not, in fact, going to do 'the tongue thing'.
