TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he once performed a duet of "Hotel California" with U2 frontman Bono at a party hosted by the king of Jordan.

Christie sang a few lines of the Eagles' song on the radio while co-hosting the "Boomer & Carton Show" on New York's WFAN on Thursday.

Christie says he sang with Bono at a party hosted by King Abdullah II on a 2012 visit to Jordan. He says Abdullah's daughter played guitar during the performance.

The Republican governor drew criticism over the trip after The New York Times reported that Abdullah paid for his family's $30,000 weekend at a luxury hotel in Jordan following a visit to Israel.

Christie's Bono duet was reported in a Christie biography by journalist Matt Katz released this year.
