"Wait!...did I just rock out with Bon Jovi tonight???" Rihanna tweeted after joining the band for "Livin' On A Prayer" at a pre-European Music Awards concert in Madrid Saturday night. "WTFFFF!!!!!!!" The surprise duet was the highlight of the intimate gig, which also featured "Wanted Dead or Alive" and Bon Jovi's new single "What Do You Got?" Sadly, Rihanna didn't convince the group to tackle "Rude Boy" or "Shut Up And Drive."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
