“Hey, guys! Thank you so much for having me, Billy,” Rodrigo said after walking onstage in the famed New York City arena. “I’m such a huge fan, and I kind of wrote this next song about you,” she continued before launching into a rendition of her hit song “deja vu,” which famously references Joel and his classic song “Uptown Girl.”

“I'll bet that she knows Billy Joel/'Cause you played her ‘Uptown Girl,’” Rodrigo sang, Joel accompanying her on piano. “You're singing it together/Now I bet you even tell her/How you love her/In between the chorus and the verse.”

The pair then performed Joel’s aforementioned 1983 hit.
