You may have heard Jon Bon Jovi’s 1986 classic ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ a million times — but you’ve never heard it like this before! Jon invited Taylor and Prince William up to sing the hit song with him on stage at Kensington Palace. Watch the video here!
Who knew Prince William could carry a tune? The Duke of Cambridge, 31, accompanied by singers Taylor Swift, 23, and Jon Bon Jovi, 51, wowed the crowd with an impromptu acoustic performance of “Livin’ on a Prayer” at the Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace in London on Nov. 26. Is he the coolest prince in history or what?! Read on for all the details and watch the performance here!
Prince William Singing With Taylor Swift & Jon Bon Jovi — ‘Living On A Prayer’
Will, who had mingled with Jon and Taylor at a drinks reception before the gala, shocked everyone when he accepted Jon’s invitation to join him on stage for a song. But Will said he would only sing on one condition — that Taylor join them! The trio then sang an amazing acoustic rendition of “Livin’ on a Prayer” that won’t soon be forgotten!
The prince, who reportedly sung the song at his cousin Zara Tindall‘s wedding reception, looked like he was having a ball on stage! In fact, he even joked about taking the stage again, telling the crowd of 600 he “felt a duet with Tinie Tempah coming on.” Rapper Tinie and singers James Blunt and Eliza Dolittle also performed at the charity event, but Will, Taylor and Jon definitely stole the show!
Taylor Swift Looks Like A Princess At Winter Whites Gala
Taylor, who headlined the glamorous gala, looked like a perfect princess in an off-the-shoulder gown which featured a gold embellished bodice and a plunging neckline.
In fact, Taylor looked so regal that we couldn’t help but think she would make a perfect match for Will’s younger brother, Prince Harry, 29. Taylor is American royalty, after all, and Harry is just her type — tall, cute and fun!
We hope Taylor took this opportunity to talk to Will about a possible set-up with Harry! Who knows — maybe they can all do karaoke together!
