Performing as part of a charity fundraising gig last Friday, 7th May, Jovi absolutely smashed the unexpected cover.
His sold out 90-minute set at The Clubhouse in East Hampton, New York was a huge success. Aside from the Harry Styles cover, which went down a treat, they managed to raise more than $50,000 USD for Meals on Wheels and Project Most.
A fan in the audience captured and shared the ‘Watermelon Sugar’ rendition.
Jerry Brayden tweeted alongside the video, “JBJ covering Watermelon Sugar! I vote this needs to be covered more! Of course, JBJ did an incredible job.”
Watch it below.
Harry Styles and his ‘Watermelon Sugar’ single took home a BRIT Award earlier this week for Best British Single.
One of Jon Bon Jovi’s last cracks at a cover didn’t go down quite as smoothly.
Fans were pissed that he took on all the vocals in a cover of The Pogues’ dueted ‘Fairytale of New York’. It appeared on his Christmas EP last year.
