It was announced last week that Kournikova will take over from Jillian Michaels as the head trainer on The Biggest Loser.
Shakira, who's seeing defender Gerard Pique, invited the player and a couple of his teammateson stage while performing a show in Pique's native Barcelona.

Singer/actor Justin Timberlake couldn't believe his luck when the race car sponsored by his William Rast clothing line won the Indianapolis 500 today.
The car was driven by British racing veteran Dan Wheldon who beat a field of other drivers for the coveted Borg-Warner Trophy.
