Taylor Swift probably just found her way into several people’s cool books.
During his appearance at the Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace, Jon Bon Jovi performed a version of his classic 80s hit “Livin’ on a Prayer.” Although fans have heard the guy perform this song countless times, this is probably the first rendition that involved both Taylor Swift and Prince William.
According to the folks at Entertainment Weekly, the event was reportedly put together to support Centrepoint. The charity’s mission is to provide help for young homeless people. Swift also performed separately during at the organization’s recent event.
The Huffington Post explains that gala attendee Rebecca Dowling is responsible for leaking the clip online. Once video of Taylor Swift, Jon Bon Jovi, and Prince William’s performance of “Livin’ on a Prayer” hit the web, it didn’t take very long for it to go viral. You can find the clip embedded below.
“Classic Tuesday night with Jon Bon Jovi performing ‘Living on a Prayer’ with Taylor Swift and HRH,” Dowling wrote on Instagram.
If that short video doesn’t do it for you, the entire performance is also embedded below. Definitely give them both a look since it’s not everyday you get to see a prince, an ’80s rocker, and a pop darling perform together onstage.
Of course, this isn’t the only reason Taylor Swift’s name has appeared in headlines this week. In addition to taking a hike through the Hollywood Hills with best fried Ed Sheeran, the singer snagged four major honors at this year’s American Music Awards.
During her recent chat with Rolling Stone, Swift hinted that she is currently hard at work on a follow-up to her award-winning album Red. While she’s certainly stoked about winning all of the awards, it’s clear that the singer isn’t going to rest on her laurels.
She told the publication:
“I’m so obsessed with where it is right now because I think, for me, the goal is that we start coming upon a sound that’s different from everything that we’ve done before, an identity to a new record. Having come upon that so early in the process is just really thrilling,” she said. “I’ve got a lot of time to write more, but it’s really looking promising so far (…) It’s way ahead of schedule. So I’m really stoked for you to hear it.”
