Shakira set the tone in the closing ceremony of the FIFA World Cup 2014 at the Maracana Stadium in Rio, Brazil. As if the ceremony was not spectacular enough, Shakira’s ‘La La La’ easily overshadowed the glitch-infested opening ceremony and the rather drab ‘Ole Ola’. Everything in the closing ceremony was perfect – a thing that eluded the opening ceremony. In other words, all is well that ends well.
