We all remember the epic performance that was supposed to occur at the VMA`s between Jay-Z and Alicia Keys but was ruined by
Bow Wow in drag Lil Mama. Well Jay and Alicia have a second chance Hov and Alicia Keys will be performing the Big Apple anthem “Empire State of Mind” on Wednesday at the new Yankee Stadium before game one’s first pitch is thrown, Jay confirmed to MTV News on Monday
“First of all, the new [Yankee] Stadium — it’s the Yankees and it’s game one of the World Series,” Jay said while promoting his “DJ Hero: Renegade Edition” video game, which sees him teamed up with Eminem. The Yanks happen to be Hov’s favorite baseball team.
“I’m beyond excited about it, and on top of that, it’s a New York record. It’s a record that pays homage to New York . The timing of that couldn’t be better,” Hov enthused. Hopefully this time Lil Mama is not allowed in the building!
