Shakira's paternal grandparents were Lebanese, so it is possible she was performing a traditional Arab ululation called the zaghrouta.

Some Colombian Twitter users also wrote that she was replicating a tongue movement done at the Carnaval in her hometown of Barranquilla.

Other Twitter users saw the funny side of the viral moment, with one posting a clip and writing: 'Me in the bathroom mirror at the bar'.

A string of tweets saw a distinct similarity between Shakira and a tongue movement done by multiple characters from Spongebob Squarepants.
