Alicia Keys Covers Juice WRLD, Coldplay, Lauryn Hill & More at 2019 Grammys | Billboard News

  • Published on Feb 11, 2019
  • 2019 Grammys host Alicia Keys took a breather from her emcee duties to tickle the ivories at the 61 Annual Grammy Awards. But Keys being the prodigiously talented singer and instrumentalist that she is, she didn’t just play one -- she commandeered two pianos in homage to pioneering Black pianist Hazel Scott.
    The theme of her performance was “those songs that live inside of you because it was done so well you wish you wrote it.” Among them? Everything from 'Killing Me Softly With His Song' (popularized by Roberta Flack and Fugees) to Juice WRLD’s 'Lucid Dreams' to Kings of Leon’s 'Use Somebody' to Nat King Cole’s 'Unforgettable' to Drake’s 'In My Feelings' to Coldplay’s 'Clocks' to Ella Mai's 'Boo'd Up' to Lauryn Hill’s 'Doo Wop (That Thing).' And for the hell of it, Keys even sang a song she DID write: 'Empire State of Mind.'

    Her double pianos are just a gimmick she will never be like Duke Ellington, she'll never been as good as Aretha franklin...she's just ordinary and pretty.

    You know how hard it is to switch rhythm, phrasing, and beat between songs...
    while playing two pianos....
    in front of 5,000 people....
    while 30 million are watching on tv?

      Its not simple, it takes a lot of practice. There's a lot of juggling going on here. To see her, Tori Amos, or anyone do this...(For someone whos not impressed by much, if anything at all), This has always been something thats impressed me when i seen Tori Amos do it. So love seeing another genuine soul do it too.
