John Legend And The Roots Wake Up Miss Universe Pageant

Aug 24th, 2010 // Comment

The world is, sadly, not full of venues for socially conscious soul music, so John Legend and The Roots are taking what they can get when it comes to getting the word out about their vintage new Wake Up! album — even if it means performing on beauty pageants. Watch John, ?uestlove & Co. keep straight faces while lovely ladies from around the globe attempt simple (very simple) choreography, wearing evening gowns, not bell bottoms.

Wait, did you catch Miss Finland fondling John’s piano? What was that?

Truth be told, the highlight of the evening for us had to be keeping up via ?uestlove’s live commentary — which included hilarious asides and sneaky photos of co-host Bret Michaels.

Here’s to the Legend/Roots collaboration continuing long past the reign of the next Miss America.
