TODAY – Monifa and Will Sims became internet sensations after The Tonight Show with Jay Leno showed them singing impromptu karaoke at a gas station, but critics are now suggesting their performance was staged.

Suspicions were raised because Monifa appeared on this same segment of The Tonight Show, at the same gas station, as the same pump, three years ago.

The couple address the issue with TODAY’s Matt Lauer, insisting, “that’s just us.”

The Sims sang Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On A Prayer” while at the the gas pump, and they received some positive feedback from the rock legend himself.  Bon Jovi sent a video message to the couple, thanking them and inviting them to sing backup for him sometime.
