Never gonna give you up...town Funk?

It's basic internet and music knowledge that there are two songs in the world that will probably never, ever die: "Uptown Funk" and Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up". But what happens when the two collide?

Rick Astley gave us an idea of it this week, at 80's music festival Let’s Rock London. The veteran pop singer busted out a cover of the unstoppable Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars single to the delight of his audience. Admittedly while watching, we were totally on edge throughout the whole thing, just waiting to be Rick Roll'd.

Astley definitely put a cool spin on this track, but you won't believe what he did next. Click here to see his rendition of Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda".
