Alicia Keys brought her ‘HERE’ album campaign to British shores tonight, taking to the stage on ‘The X Factor UK.’
Marking her first UK televised performance of the “era,” the 15-time Grammy winner aimed to make it count with a spirited rendition of ‘Blended Family.’
Watch Alicia belt her heart out after the jump…
While technically on-point, the song itself doesn’t translate well live as a single. It sounds like lounge music.
She’d have been much better performing ‘In Common’ or ‘Hallelujah.’ Sure, they were demoted to bonus tracks, but they each pack the right kind of punch for the type of show she was on.
