Bon Jovi surprises grads, guests with commencement show

"Extra's" AJ Calloway hung out with Jon Bon Jovi in the New York Giants locker room.

Musician Jon Bon Jovi, center, performs during a surprise appearance at the Fairleigh Dickinson University commencement ceremony, Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The school won a nationwide contest to bring the New Jersey-based band to play their graduation by generating the most interest on social media.

"We are going to pop up and surprise the school that had the most votes to get us to come", Jon Bon Jovi said on Good Morning America Tuesday morning.

Bon Jovi was about to surprise thousands of lucky college grads at their commencement. Learn to laugh, dare to dance, touch the sky. Make this the best of the rest of your days.

"Choose your words wisely - not only those you say to others but also the words you say to yourself".

Labour MP Chuka Umunna has also made it clear that he thinks the "blank cheque" could work as an election message for Labour. ICM interviewed 2,024 adults between April 21 and 24.

The school had won a contest run by MTV's college network where students could tweet their best college memories with the hashtag #JBJReunion for a chance to see the star perform at their graduation, according to the Associated Press.

"Don't take any criticism too heavily, but don't accept the praise too loudly either", Bon Jovi added.

He said that he hopes his song "Reunion" will be "a song that you'll be able to sing and relate to, and hear on the radio, and go 'That was a part of my graduation'".

He was speaking from a stage at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, where the band has played to sold-out crowds many times.

"Whatever your vision of how your life is going to be going forward, do it in pencil", said Bon Jovi.
