Alicia Keys Performs Medley of Hits at 2013 NBA All Star Game Halftime Show [Video]
Rocking black leather like Bey at the Super Bowl, Keys opened her performance with ‘Empire State of Mind,’ seated comfortably at her piano, exiting her comfortable perch to transition into ‘Girl on Fire.’ Rocking leather pants and a black embellished top, Keys danced her heart out, breaking into ‘No One,’ then returning to her piano and urging the crowd to put their cell phones in the air. She got back up to dance some more and bust into the more uptempo ‘New Day.’
While her choreography wasn’t nearly as intricate as Queen Bey’s, Keys still delivered a solid show — and looked super stoked to be there rocking her kicks.
It’s the second big performance Keys has done recently in medley form. She joined Maroon 5 onstage at the 2013 Grammys for a seamless mashup of ‘Girl on Fire’ and ‘Daylight.’ The format works for her, allowing the Mrs. Swizz Beatz to showcase her talents both tickling the ivories and busting moves.
