During a recent appearance at Vanderbilt University billed as "An Evening of Questions and Answers and a Little Bit of Music," a student raised his hand and asked Billy Joel if he could accompany the Piano Man during "New York State of Mind." Billy Joel says "okay" and the kid makes his way to the stage and proceeds to absolutely kill it. This is the happy video of the day.

The student, lifelong Billy Joel fan Michael Pollack, dished to The Vanderbilt Hustler about scheming to get on stage, growing up a Billy Joel fan, and the feeling of performing on stage with the legend.
