Jay-Z & Alicia Keys Performing "Empire State Of Mind" At The World Series
The New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies were supposed to be the main attraction Thursday night at Game 2 of the World Series. But Jay-Z and Alicia Keys turned the players into fans during a rocking pre-game performance of their hit song "Empire State of Mind."
Jay-Z prowled the outfield stage in a Yankees cap and varsity jacket, rapping his New York anthem, while Keys belted out the chorus, first while seated at her piano and then from center stage.
Cameras caught players from both dugouts bobbing their heads and enjoying the show, and the Yankees seemed unperturbed by Jay-Z's somewhat controversial lyric, "I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can." [source]
