All right, it wasn't quite a supergroup. But the 600 invited guests who witnessed a slightly nervous Prince William joining Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi for a rendition of "Livin' on a Prayer" will likely never forget it.
Rocking a tux, the prince was led to the stage by Swift late Tuesday night at Kensington Palace. Once in front of the mic, he clapped his hands and nodded his head to the music as those in the crowd hollered the chorus. At times he even managed to harmonize with Swift and Bon Jovi – and play air guitar.
The impromptu concert was described by William's aides as completely "off the cuff," and as it concluded, William and Swift high-fived each another, while Bon Jovi, who was awarded the Great Britain Youth Inspiration Award in honor of his Soul Foundation, gave his royal backup singer a big hug.

Nashville is in the house. Well, make that the Palace.
Taylor Swift lit up Kensington Palace as she led a spectacular showbiz party hosted by Prince William Tuesday night – and even managed to get him onstage.
Swift, Jon Bon Jovi Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth and Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery were on hand to help William raise money – and awareness – for his youth homelessness charity Centrepoint.
"It's positively magical here," Swift told reporters of the Winter Whites Gala. "There are fairy lights and there is fake snow falling from the sky and everything is just gorgeous. I am just very lucky to be here."

He gives love a good name!
Jon Bon Jovi made one super-fan's dreams come true when he surprised her by walking her down the aisle Saturday at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas – 24 years after he married wife Dorothea at the exact same venue.
In August, Australian Bon Jovi fan Branka Delic had started an online petition recruiting him for her wedding to Gonzalo Cladera. The rocker was to be in town the same weekend for the "Because We Can" tour at the MGM Grand.

Jon Bon Jovi isn't just livin' on a prayer following the apparent heroin overdose that hospitalized his daughter Stephanie Rose Bongiovi last month.
Speaking out about the issue with his daughter, the legendary rocker, 50, says he's "confident" Bongiovi, 19, will be okay, telling the Associated Press, "You surround them with the best help and love and move on, and that's where we're at with it."
Although the musician and his family are getting past the Nov. 14 incident that occurred in Bongiovi's Hamilton College dorm room in Clinton, N.Y., the musician is still surprised it happened.

Jon Bon Jovi says his family has been touched by public support and will move forward after his daughter's arrest and hospitalization for a heroin overdose.
Speaking with Fox 11 in L.A., Bon Jovi called the Nov. 14 episode in a dorm room at New York's Hamilton College involving daughter Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, 19, a tragedy. Charges of drug possession against her eventually were dropped and she recovered at a local hospital.
"This tragedy was something that I had to face too, so we'll get through it," said Bon Jovi, 50, also father to three younger children with his wife of 23 years, Dorothea Hurley. "And people's incredible warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So, we're good."

Jon Bon Jovi's daughter, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, no longer faces drug charges because of New York's law applying to overdose cases in which there was a call for help, authorities said Thursday.
Bongiovi, 19, and Ian S. Grant, 21, both students at Hamilton College in Upstate New York, were arrested this week on drug possession charges after officers found heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia in her dorm room, according to police.
On Thursday, the misdemeanor charges against both were dropped because of a 2011 amendment to the New York penal code exempting people from possession charges if they had sought help for somebody experiencing a "drug or alcohol overdose or other life-threatening medical emergency."
