Norah Jones Serenades Hometown at Madison Square Garden Theater

"It's great to be home," says Norah Jones.

The singer-songwriter is talking to the some 5,000 people at New York's Madison Square Garden Theater Saturday night, a slightly less intimate space than the last time we saw her.

"So far our best audience was Tulsa, Oklahoma," Jones admits. "But I think you guys can beat them."

The five-time Grammy Award winner serenaded the crowd for nearly two hours, alternating between piano and guitar for gems like "I Wouldn't Need You," "Even Though," "Tell Your Mama," "Don't Know Why," and "Sunrise."

"I made a baby to that song!" someone in the audience screams.

"You're an oversharer, like me," Jones replies, then launching into a cover of Hank Williams' "Cold Cold Heart."

"Has anyone made a baby to that [song]? Maybe the Hank Williams version?" she asks.

Jones encores the evening with the soulful "How Many Times Have You Broken My Heart" and "Come Away With Me," on electric guitar.

"You're beating Tulsa," she lets us know.

Check out snippets of Jones' encore, above and below.
