Tom Cruise joins Black Eyed Peas on stage and 'rocks out' as he helps perform final song
By Daily Mail Reporter

New bandmate: Black Eyed Peas welcome their new member Tom Cruise as they perform onstage at London's O2 Arena

When the Black Eyed Peas spotted an intruder onstage, they could have been excused for calling security.

But it was none other than movie star Tom Cruise, who had been secretly asked to join the band for their final song by singer Fergie.

The actor stunned fans - and Fergie's bandmates - when he took the stage at the band's London show at the O2 arena and even helped them perform their final song.
Peas' star admitted: 'Even we were surprised - Fergie was the only one who knew about it.'

But Cruise said he felt in no position to not hit the stage, after being encouraged by Fergie.

'Fergie gave me a formal invitation to come onstage,' Cruise said.

'The way she said it was, "Don't be a wuss, you've got to come on stage for the last song".' said: 'He rocked out to I've Got A Feeling. The crowd loved it.'

Cruise has grown close to the band after working with them on the soundtrack of his new movie Knight And Day.

'I met Will at a charity event and we said we've got to work together,' Tom recalled.

'Then afterwards we went to see the Peas over the Super Bowl weekend and afterwards we met up again.

'We were about three quarters of the way through shooting Knight And Day and I just thought, "We've got to have the Black Eyed Peas do a song. It's a perfect match."

'So Will came by the editing room and we showed him some scenes - and he just started writing the song there in the room.
'We were amazed - it was pretty incredible.' said: 'I'm a fan of Tom's and I was so thrilled when they asked me to collaborate.'
