Kelly Ripa got her dance on today – and big time. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host appeared in an Instagram video with Anna Kaiser (posted to both ladies’ accounts), with fans likely immediately noticing that singer Shakira’s iconic “Whenever, Wherever” track was playing.
Shakira’s hips may not lie, but Kelly’s workout body doesn’t either. The video was showing the 49-year-old unleashing her moves to the max, and it tied in with the Colombian singer’s headline-making as she joins Jennifer Lopez in the lineup for the Super Bowl Halftime Show on February 2.

The video showed Kelly and Anna in a dance studio. Kelly kicked things off by announcing that this was “Shakira Super Bowl audition take 3.”
The music quickly began playing, with the two ladies co-ordinating their dancing to “Whenever, Wherever.”
Kelly was looking sensational, showing off her gym-honed and age-defying body in a tight black pair of yoga pants paired with a muscle-back tank that was doing wonders for the mom of three’s strong arms and shoulders. Kelly wore her hair down (things did get wild), also wearing light-colored sneakers.
Kelly’s video racked up views in no time. Over 80,000 had been clocked by the time the video was just one hour old.
Comments poured in, both from fans and, it would seem, from Kelly’s own family members. Daughter Lola Grace Consuelos left a note.
“Oh Lord,” she wrote.
Kelly replied to her teen daughter.
“Shhhhh. Do you want me to release the video of us dancing to your song?” she wrote.
FYI, Lola’s voice is something that’s worth listening to. The 18-year-old recently wowed Instagram with her stunning voice.
Kelly’s daughter wasn’t the only face in the comments section. Fans turned out in full force to reply, with responses going down all avenues.
“Shakira Shakira #hipsdontlie,” one fan wrote mentioning the Colombian singer.
“Whoa! Got moves KR!!!” another said.
“I mean. This is everything,” one user stated.
Fans had noticed Kelly’s mention of an “audition,” and a fair few seemed out to let the star know that she’d nailed it.
“I think you passed the audition,” one fan wrote.
“Great job, Kelly,” another added.
Kelly is a workout queen, with many an Instagram story having shown the star getting her fitness fix in. Speaking to The Cut in 2019, Kelly revealed that her youthful body may simply be a natural thing.
“I was talking to a cardiologist and he said to make sure your heart beats out of your chest every day. The more you exercise, the healthier it is. And I can be honest: My body looks like Peter Pan no matter what I do. I’ve never been a va-va-voom woman,” she revealed.
