On Thursday night, June 10 in celebration of soccer, music and unity, the three international headliners took the stage of FIFA World Cup Kick-Off Celebration Concert to perform their hit singles.

Shakira, who was dressed in a cut-out, animal-printed bodysuit with a shredded skirt, started off her set by singing "She Wolf". The Columbian singer then moved on with another of her hit singles, "Hips Don't Lie". She closed her performance by delivering "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", the official World Cup anthem.

Meanwhile, Alicia first rocked the stage with "You Don't Know My Name". The songstress, who has recently announced her pregnancy, continued on to sing "Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart", "Fallin' " and "Empire State of Mind". For the occasion, she changed lyrics of the last song from "New York" to "World Cup". As her last song, she covered Brenda Fassie's "Too Late for Mama".

Black Eyed Peas got on stage after an address by FIFA president Sepp Blatter and South African president Jacob Zuma. They pumped up the air of party with "Where Is the Love?", before members and aka Fergie led concertgoers through "Pump It". The group ended their set after delivering two more songs, "Boom Boom Pow" and "I Gotta Feeling".

Those three weren't the only performers making merry the gig. Six-time Grammy winner , South African trumpet legend Hugh Masekela, Somali hip-hop artist K'Naan and several other international artists, such as Amadou & Mariam, Vusi Mahlasela, and Vieux Farka Toure, also took part.
