Alicia Keys has truly been playing up to the locals during her recent run of U.K. shows, performing for the Queen outside Buckingham palace one weekend and then bringing out Johnny Marr in Manchester the next. Yes, on Saturday night Keys was playing at the AO Arena in Manchester when she brought out hometown hero Marr to run through "This Charming Man" by his band The Smiths. Naturally, understandably, Morrissey wasn't invited. Check out footage from the Manchester show below.

Late last year Keys was a guest on The FADER Interview, in which she discussed her album KEYS. She also appeared alongside Kanye West on drill rapper Fivio Foreign's "City Of Gods," released in February.
