Norah Jones fans who couldn’t quite make it down to lower Manhattan to see the Grammy-winner perform during the Tribeca Film Festival can catch her in concert on MTV and VH1.

“100 Percent NYC: A Concert Celebrating the Tribeca Film Festival” is scheduled to air simultaneously on both cable music channels at 8 p.m. EDT Saturday.

The show took place in Battery Park during the second annual festival, which ran May 3-11. The Roots, Sean Paul, Robbie Williams and Jewel also performed, along with comedians Wanda Sykes, Denis Leary and Jimmy Fallon.

The hour-long broadcast will include behind-the-scenes footage from the free show, which drew 15,000 people on May 9.

Robert De Niro and his Tribeca Films partner, Jane Rosenthal, founded the festival after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to help boost the downtown Manhattan economy.
