Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb with Pitbull on 'Today'Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb brought a Latin flavor to 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), interviewing rapper and producer Pitbull and dancer-cising with Zumba creator Beto Perez. They talked with Pitbull, co-founder of the Bad Boy Latino label with P-Diddy, about the finer points of creating mega-hit records before putting on their workout clothes and trying to keep up with Perez in an outdoor exercise session.

Pitbull has appeared on a lot of other artists' records, including Marc Anthony and Lil' Jon. Sometimes he writes the entire record, sometimes just his part, and he said he was thankful that big names seek him out. "I don't look at it like they're clamoring to get me on the record, I look at it more like they gave me an amazing opportunity after all these years of hard work," he said. "To me, the secret behind a record is arranging the record and having fun while you're doing it."

Then it was time to exercise, and Gifford and Kotb looked a little lost at times trying to keep up with Perez and his crew. Perhaps if they had paid more attention in their Brazilian Butt segment a couple of weeks ago, they'd have had a better handle on Zumba.
