VIDEO: Alicia Keys DANCES IT UP For 2013 NBA All-Star Halftime Show

 photo BDWql8ACQAApMCljpg_large_zpsea439d3a.jpg

Alicia Keys threw on her brand new Reebok Classics AKW's (coming soon) and her cube crop top and leather pants both from Herve Leger's runway to rock the NBA All-Star halftime show.  The fab chick decided to throw in some dance moves in addition to her piano playing.  But decide if she pulled it off inside..

Alicia went through a medley of her songs like "Empire State of Mind" (most people seemed a bit baffled by this song choice) and "A New Day" while giving u a 2013 All-Star halftime show in Houston.

She threw in some choreography while showing off her midriff.  As for the vocals tonight...somebody def should have passed a cup-o-tea-and-honey over to her mid-performance.  And we'll leave it at that.  Peep the video below:

 

By the way, Alicia will be on "The Wendy Show" tomorrow (pre-taped) dishing with the talk show maven and busting out another performance.

I love Alicia and her voice.

I love Alicia and her voice. It wasn't her best but it's alright she'll be better next time. I enjoyed her performance and admire and respect that she always gives her best and always gives a live performance. She is the best.

Maaannnn...I lost all respect

Maaannnn...I lost all respect for AK! I don't appreciate this basic bald headed bitch coming to my city and sings "New York". Out of all the new tracks you have, you chose New York?! Really!? You either the dumbest performer ever or you need better people. You could've kept that shit in New York! I don't even know why you were ask to sing when our hometown girl was in the bldg. I guess she couldn't do 2 major events in one month. I'm sure she would gave us a helluv of lot more that AK....

If she continues to sing this

If she continues to sing this way (pushing so hard and not through her diaphragm) she's going to end up with significant lesions on her vocal chords. Her voice won't make it another 20 years if she doesn't start making a change.

I really like her shirt but I refuse to listen to anymore of her live singing. I wanna remember A. Keys from her glory days. Now she sounds like she has bronchitis or something.

I don't even like Beyonce, but boy I tell ya the more I watch these "singers" the more I see why Bey is on top. I don't even know if Bey is that great, it's just that the rest of them are that terrible. what happened to her?

This was a SAD SAD attempt to

This was a SAD SAD attempt to compete w/ all the compliments and praise Beyonce got from the Super Bowl performance, and I'm not even a Beyonce fan. I could not help but hold the pillow over my face as this awlful debacle (her performance) was going on, I was completely and utterly EMBARRASSED for her! It looked and sounded like an 80's high school talent or GONG SHOW! Alicia has officially FALLEN OFF THE HIGHEST BUILDING OR MOUNTAIN TOP w/ NO CHANCE OF RECOVERY!

Let me tell you what this

Let me tell you what this was. Swizz told Alicia she better wear those Reeboks as well as her dancers and get her ass up from that piano and dance so everybody can see them. We trying to sell product and make money. I don't care if you cant catch your breath and hit notes while dancing. This is about marketing my Reebok products and oh by the way tell everybody in the band to put on my Monster headphones. Alright baby! Ya'll Alicia trying to keep her marriage together and do what Swizz say. The Hell with what I look and sound like. Its all about the Marketing, product placement and money. Oh Yeah, you seen her with that blackberry at courtside too right. Alicia is slowly killing her career. Just my observation.

You know this may sound crazy

You know this may sound crazy but if she really put the time and effort into dancing Alicia would be a good dancer. O_o Also if her voice matched her dancing (assuming its good) she could beat BeYAWNce out the water O_O *Ooops* YES! I just said that!!!

I beg to differ...no ma'am.

I'm really going to need for her to stick to playing the piano and leave the dancing to the dancers. Just saying...

Beyonce made it look easy at

Beyonce made it look easy at the Super Bowl so she mistakenly thought that she could DANCE and SING at the same time. Only a few people can do that which is why the dancers get paid to 'dance' and the singers get paid to 'sing'. Most people can't do both at the same time - let alone sound good in the process.
SpeakingMyMind's picture

AMEN! Alicia needs to give

AMEN! Alicia needs to give that up...PRONTO! This performance definitely tainted her singing career. She must have been very hoarse/sick.
C2C's picture

E for effort on the dance

E for effort on the dance moves, it's like watching Riri dance #painful. Her voice sound soooo strained and overworked.Since she's been with Swizzy her voice been getting worse, he gave her an everlasting throat infection. She should of kept it simple...#smh #oh.wells

That performance was a disaster, plus those horrible garbage bag pants and that Jamie Lee Curtis (True Lies), slicked down ass hairdo, was just a ..... NO, NO, and NO!!!

Yeah I was having a

Yeah I was having a debate/conversation with my friend during her performance. We were trying to pinpoint at what time in her career Alicia started sounding this bad. She used to slay. Or am I just lying to myself?
CheyPie's picture

I don't think she was ever at

I don't think she was ever at the level of slaying (just my opinion), but she most definitely sounded much better than this, and the first time I noticed the big difference was at Whitney's funeral. I don't know what's going on. Maybe she need to go to the throat doctor and get checked out. (shrugs)
