Watch: Norah Jones Covers Johnny Cash at the 2011 Webby Awards

Back on Monday night, Norah Jones performed as part of the 2011 Webby Awards Gala in New York City. Why? Well, we're not so sure. But, hey, a nice performance nonetheless -- she covered Johnny Cash's "Ain't No Grave" with the help of a backing band and some superbly art directed backing visuals. As always, it was a tasteful performance from Booker T. Washington High School's Own. Beautiful, really.

Which is why -- y'know, given that it was a web awards show and all --we're a little surprised that the video hasn't gone more viral than it has. Oh well. We can at least do our part to try and help out on that front, right?

In that vein, hit the jump and check out the performance in full.
