Alicia Keys hosted the 2019 GRAMMY Awards and she simply rocked it!
But apart from hosting, the 38-year-old icon also sang covers of award-winning songs, AND performed them while playing the piano. Okay, two pianos to be more precise. How is she so cool?
She performed hits from the likes of Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly,” Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody,” Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams,” Drake’s “In My Feelings,” Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up,” and Lauryn Hill’s “Doo-Wop (That Thing).”
Watch below for an epic performance:

In addition, she even added some Coldplay instrumentals and blessed us with her “Empire State of Mind” at the end.
After the opening number from the great, Camila Cabello, Alicia Keys took to the stage to welcome everyone in the audience to the biggest night for music. But, before introducing the next performance, she addressed the audience inside Staples Center, saying she had brought someone else along with her up in the stage. She said:
So let’s just be honest. This is a celebration and y’all didn’t think I was coming out here by myself did you?
So can I bring some of my sisters out here tonight?
Right after that, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Jada Pinkett Smith, and none other than the former First Lady Michelle Obama appeared on the stage alongside her, to share their own thoughts and experiences as to how powerful music is.
The former First Lady admitted how music has always helped her tell her story, saying:
From the Motown records I wore out on the south side to the Who Run the World songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story and I know that’s true for everybody here.
All in all, it was an epic night full of epic artists who take the stage to bless us every day!
