X Factor 2012 Results: Alicia Keys shines with amazing ‘Girl On Fire’ performance (VIDEO)
Alicia Keys returned to the X Factor stage this evening to perform her latest single ‘Girl On Fire.’
The stunning 31 year old singer doesn’t often appear on reality TV shows and neither does she need to. During her career to date she has won many awards and has sold over 35 million albums and 30 million singles worldwide.
Billboard magazine named her the top R&B artist of 2000–2009, in 2010, VH1 included her on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and Billboard magazine placed her number ten on their list of Top 50 R&B/Hip-Hop Artists of the Past 25 Years.
Not bad going eh?
This evening Alicia performed her new song, which is the title and lead track from her fifth studio album and which she has revealed was inspired by giving birth to her son Egypt and marriage to husband Swizz Beatz.
She looked stunning in a figure hugging black strapless dress and she started the song acapella.
It was very stripped back and just showcased her amazing vocal skill. There were a few cracks and weaker than normal moments than we are used to from Keys, but still she wiped the stage with most of the performers that take to it every Sunday night.
