Singer Alicia Keys just proved she is more talented than we think and capable of more than what we imagine as she delivered yet another inspiring performance at the 61st Grammy Awards. Keys, who made her hosting debut at the Hollywood’s biggest musical night, treated viewers to an exhilarating double piano performance. Sat between the two pianos, Keys performed a medley of songs by various artists, including Jay-Z, Kings Of Leon and Nat King Cole during the ceremony.
“How are we feeling tonight? Yes, you know, the vibes are so right, at Club Keys, I want to welcome y’all to Club Keys, where the music is cool and timeless and the vibe is so sensational.
I’ve been thinking so much about the people and the music that has inspired me and I want to give a sh-out out to Hazel Scott because I always wanted to play two pianos,” Keys said.
Keys’ medley included K-lling Me Softly by Roberta Flack, Lucid Dreams by Juice Wrld, Unforgettable by Nat King Cole, Use Somebody by Kings Of Leon, In My Feelings by Drake, Boo’d Up by Ella Mai and Doo-Wop (That Thing) by Fugees singer Lauryn Hill.

Meanwhile, Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover made history as he took Record of the Year for his politically provocative This Is America– the first hip-hop track to win the honor, while night’s biggest award– Album of the Year– went to British singer Kacey Musgraves for Golden Hour.
This is America, about police brutality and ra-cism, also took Grammys for Song of the Year, Best Music Video and Best Rap Performance. But Gambino was not present at the show to celebrate the milestone.
