Default Official Petition to ban Alicia Keys(and Ne-yo) from ASW

These two should be ashamed of the performances they put up in Houston.

Ne-Yo is just a damn fool for performing the only single that was remotely successful from his album and has already been run into the ground, but the performance was just lack luster at best.

Alicia Keys needs to f*cking retire. I was going to go see her perform with Miguel in Toronto this spring, but I'm second guessing my shit right now. I'm just done. It was that bad.

Rad and I discussed this during the travesty and he said:" She sounded like she smoked a pack of menthols before getting on the stage."

Sound aside, her song choices were just abysmal.

Empire State of Mind(a song about NYC??) did this woman forget we were in Houston? Like really? Who approved this? Why couldn't she have done another of her countless hits?

Plus what made it worse was that Jay-Z was in attendance during this.

I know she has a solo version of the song but ugh.

Then the Girl on Fire song she has been pushing for three months none stop from everywhere from BlackBerry ads of all kids, to god knows what.

Then she tried to dance.

I almost turned off the TV. She needs to stay her ass behind the KEYS....that's why she's called Alicia KEYS....why stray when you've sold 20 million plus albums sitting on that bench?

Video of Keys Performance: http://youtu.be/nS46CLNSNTA

I'm a huge fan of R&B and love some of their current as well as past music, but god damn did shake my head at these two. The sound was suspect and who ever that was in charge of video and sound should be fired and blacklisted. Replays were off for the game and so was the sound for each of their performances.

Almost forgot the part where Keys says " put your cell phones in the air".... but that's just a generational critique, not really a black mark on the performance. People would rather photograph and record the event rather than experience it these days.

I really really expected more from Alicia Keys, but I don't know what happened. Maybe it was the ugly pants?

A comment on a youtube video claims that the bad performances was due to the sound equiptment:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc4xQMMdjBQ

Quote:
I work a lot with audio equipment, and (from what I've heard from Ne-Yo's performance, it's almost entirely the mic. He's on pitch, it's just the mic quality is awful. Someone didn't set the audio filter right, and there's virtually zero compression, which for those who don't know, essentially levels out the audio volume so it's at a constant, comfortable decibel level. It sounds like a 30 dollar karaoke machine he's using, and he doesn't deserve the hate I'm seeing.

I agree with this guy, the sound didn't sound right.

I had the whole thing on mute so I didn't hear that. There is just something so wrong with that statement.
