Alicia Keys couldn't be on hand for Drake's performance of "Fireworks" at London's Hammersmith Apollo theater on Saturday night, but the rapper found a fine replacement in the form of Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine.

The singer came out midway through the tune, inspiring seemingly everyone in the venue to reach for their cellphone to snap photos of two on stage together. Then Drake treated the audience to an actual fireworks display at the end of their performance.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
