Jay-Z and Alicia Keys bring the VMAs home

With the Brooklyn Bridge in the background and the crowd at their feet, the two NY natives truly brought the VMAs, broadcast last year from Las Vegas, back to the Big Apple with their powerful and poignant performance of their duet, “Empire State of Mind.” Bonus points to the audience member who managed to grab her 15 minutes of fame during the last moments of the two’s performance.
