Jay-Z & Alicia Keys LIVE From The World Series-"Empire State Of Mind"


In case you missed it tonight (like I did even though I was sitting RIGHT in front the tv, smdh), here's Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' live "Empire State of Mind" performance. They performed at Yankee Stadium before the game got officially underway. Wow @ Alicia's bright purple-pink (I'm told it looked hot pink on tv) jacket and matching thigh high boots. Hot performance though....

I was 5 feet away from the before the performance and I'll tell you...her outfit is PINK...and they did NOT lip sync. We did several sound checks during the afternoon and I was standing right next to the stage during the performance and I GUARANTEE they did NOT lip sync!!!!!!!!!!! Also, they couldn't pull that train (the cars held the stage and all the speakers on different carts) over the infield. As it was, they did damage part of the outfield grass and quickly tried to repair it before the performance. There is NO way it could have been brought closer to the crowd. The show was AWESOME!

Bet Beyonce wishes Jay would hold her like that. He won't touch her or walk next to her.

Skye5000: That was pure

Skye5000: That was pure HOTNESS!!! I have always liked Jay-Z’s SWAGGA. He was and always will hold it down for NYC!! AK was hot, as well!! Good solid performance! I loved the way Derek J was nodding his head and the Philly players were jammin too…I saw that… AK’s outfit was cool. No problem, but damn the heel on those boots was awfully HIGH!! But, I guess it’s cool. It wasn’t like she was gonna be doing alot of dancing obviously. NOW… CONCERN: I do not think that it’s cool for Jay to be putting his arm around AK and being all affectionate with her like “that” considering she is NOT his wife NOR his girl. I mean…it not like I know either one of them personally and it should not matter..BUT. BEY is my Girl. And, I am a married woman. And, I did not like it and Jay is NOT my husband, but I felt like, Damn. Why is Jay all up on AK like that? Unless they like Buds in all. But still…I was not FEELING that at all!! YBF ones.. What Y’all think about that? Do you think it was all innocent like a good pal you hang around and like high fiving each other like yeah, we did that SH_t!! or what?Peace…Skye5000 I think its innocent like, "yeah we killed it!" He's huggin her like he would a sister. :)

Females are going to talk

Females are going to talk regardless....like I said before, Alicias record was sqeaky clean before Swizz came in the picture, so now that there is some supposed dirt...people are going to keep bringing it up because they have nothing else to talk about before that. Just to prove how quick folks are to jump on gossip..the only person we heard from about the situation is Moshanda..because she the only one living in the past. Swizz and Alicia been together for a while now...their relationship is nothing new. Some folks are a trip...it wasn't too long ago that people was claiming Alicia was a closet lesbian...now she is a 'homewrecker' and everyother name in the book. Please...I like Alicia, and her personal life has nothing to do with her turning out them hits..so as long as she continues to be as talented as she is, im going to keep on buying her music.
Oh Please....'s picture

Im not trying to start

Im not trying to start nothing....but why is Jay always shows more affection towards other women then he does his wife? He was all over Alicia lastnight. I mean, I know Jay and Beyonce are a "private" couple and all...but even in pictures where they think no one is looking they barely touch....im sorry, they are just a strange couple to me. But whatever makes them comfortible I guess... I thought the performance was ok...I didn't find anything really wrong with it other then they seemed distant and it was wierd watching them perform without a crowd close to the stage...thats they only thing that threw me off...they should have allowed them to have fans on the field close to the stage like they do during the Super Bowl Halftime shows. And LMAO @ the comments about Lil Mama...she is never going to live that down.

I don't know what some of you

I don't know what some of you were watching but Jeter was grooving, the Phillies were bobbing their heads and one of the Yankees even pulled out his camcorder to record it. Not too mention the announcers afterwards who were so excited that they said they were gonna all go catch a Jay-Z concert next week...lol You can dislike both of them but give props when it is due. They rocked that song... plus it is Jeter's 'at bat' song... They repped last night.

Hating much? I thought the

Hating much? I thought the performance was good. They were live, you could hear them echoing in the stadium. I thought it was a nice performance, but of course the atmosphere changes things. So this is a much diffrent performance than it would be in a concert venue. They are in the middle of a baseball field, and the crowd was cheering veyr much so! I'm just glad that hip hop artist got the cchance to play at the WORLD SERIES!! THAT'S HUGE!!!!!! Great for hip hop. Don't care too much for Alicia as many don't, but love the SONG.

I was at Jays concert Wednesday in Columbus Ohio...In case you didnt know...jay just REALLY broke history for Rap...like he's the FIRST SINCE ELVIS to have 10 (NOW 11 since BP3!!) consecutive albums hit number one...AND HE'S A RAPPER!!!!!

DAMN ALICIA AND HER AWFUL

DAMN ALICIA AND HER AWFUL OUTFIT!....ughhh @ those DOOR KNOCKER earrings.....Im sorry but I used to really feel Alicia...I feel like her whole 'old' persona is ruined once the whole messing with married men thing...now everything she does just seems old... Bet that everytime she performs she gotta wear black spandex or black tight ass jeans...SMH @ her ghetto sense of horrible style...Im sorry, but shes played out

LOVE JAY-Z & ALICIA! THEY HELD IT DOWN FOR NY! Even the haters on here had to watch that performance last night and most of y'all don't even like Baseball! Who else you know in hip-hop or R&B would be able to get a chance to perform at the World Series? Nobody, cause both Jay and Alicia are at the top of the game. Let your haters be your motivators! Love the song and the performance!

I thought the style of Alicia's jacket was kinda cute, definitely would've looked better in black! Didn't realize she was sooo thick!...lol... I was also surprised that Jay-z actually left in the line about "making a Yankee fitted more famous than a Yankee can!"... the crowd straight-up BOOED him at that point!! lol... It really took A LOT of balls to say that in Yankee Stadium, though!...(The performance sounded live to me) :-0

Umm.. a purple leather jacket?? Why can't she get casual down, she can get it right for red carpet events, but other than that...
Yas's picture

the song itself is AMAZING.

the song itself is AMAZING. the performance was ok. the color of the jacket ain't bad its just the jacket itself is ugly and probably would be in any other color. maybe she should have worn something more fitting for the event like jay and everyone else on stage. EVERYONE DOES LOOK BORED THO u can't miss those expressions looooooooool i woulda been jammin.

um, alicia's part was straight from the studio version...they can't do it live due to the echo effect. jay's may have been prerecorded during rehearsals. i like the song, but am damn sick of it as they played it out here in nyc already. i love the players bored ass reactions...what was up wit all the booty shots tho?? a.keys gets a hell to the no on those purple hooker boots...jacket was kinda cute in an 80's way tho.
