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?

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.
