Guess which team they're rooting for!

New York natives Jay-Z and Alicia Keys will perform their hit single "Empire State of Mind" before game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium in New York. Following their duet, Keys will perform the National Anthem.

"As a die-hard Yankee fan, I'm honored to perform a song that celebrates the greatness of New York in one of our city's most important landmarks, Yankee Stadium," Jay-Z said in a statement Monday.

The New York Yankees will face off against the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series, which will air on FOX (7:30 p.m. ET).
