The big man himself, John Legend, made excellent use of the public pianos in London's St Pancras station last night, treating commuters, tourists and passersby to an eight-minute impromptu performance.


The international train station has two public pianos, designed to encourage passersby and 10-time Grammy award-winning musicians to stop by and play a choon.

Obviously, news of the surprise gig spread quickly.


Which was a nice lil' surprise for London on the day Article 50 was finally triggered.


Of course, not everyone was impressed.


But most were insanely jealous that today, of all days, they happened to not be in St Pancras train station, including this writer, who has been there approximately twice in her life.


He played a number of hits, including the devastatingly beautiful 'All Of Me'.


And the whole thing was live-streamed on Facebook by Live Nation (who are promoting his UK leg of his 'Darkness And Light' tour later this year).



The moral of this story is: for the first time in living memory, finding yourself squished in between several dozen, iPhone-wielding tourists on London's Underground was actually worth it.
