Alicia Keys has resurrected "MTV Unplugged"
"I've always been a very big fan of the show and when they stopped doing it, I was like, what happened to 'MTV Unplugged?' I specifically went in there and said we have to do an 'Unplugged,'" so said Alicia Keys expressing her excitement to get the chance to resurrect "MTV Unplugged." The singer and pianist has performed an acoustic set for the dormant MTV series, filmed July 14 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, with some guest appearances from the like of Mos Def, Common Sense, Damian Marley and Maroon 5's Adam Levine, with whom she remade The Rolling Stones' classic "Wild Horses."
Concerning Keys performance, MTV announced Tuesday that the show will first premiere Sept. 15 on Overdrive, MTV's broadband network, before then be released as a CD and DVD on October 11.
