Alicia Keys was asked to perform at a special opening concert to celebrate the start of the 2010 World Cup, which is being hosted by South Africa.
We’ve all heard her acoustic version of Empire State of Mind, but in this performance she decided to add a little twist to it:
â€œTonight weâ€™re in Jo-Burg,â€
â€œConcrete jungle where dreams are made of/Thereâ€™s nothing you canâ€™t do/When youâ€™re in Africa.â€
â€œLetâ€™s hear it for World Cup, World Cup, World Cup!â€
Pretty cringe-worthy, but thankfully she didn’t add this ‘twist’ to any of her other hits she performed on the night, which included Fallin’, No One, and You Donâ€™t Know My Name among others.
