Audio Vision: Alicia Keys and Stephen Colbert Make Duetting Magic

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

As I'm wrapping up my final paper for the Fall semester, I decided to give you guys a study break in the form of when music and comedy collide. Alicia Keys was on The Colbert Report last night performing, "Empire State Of Mind II" off of her just released The Element of Freedom and was greeted with a surprise guest. The beginning of the performance is actually quite lovely, and then it gets some added spice when "MC" Stephen Colbert, host of the Colbert Report, steps in the shoes of Jay-Z and begins to rap and rally along with the song making it the "Upper Middle Class Remix" version of the song. It's really hysterical and definitely gave me some chuckles to get me out of my finals funk. How Miss Keys remained her composure to perform as Stephen was "rapping" and spinning around with an attached hoodie to his suit, I do not know.
