Alicia Keys, dressed in a regal red ballgown, took to the piano to belt out a medley of recent tunes that couldn’t have been more appropriate for the evening, including “New Day” and “Girl on Fire.”
She even changed the “Girl on Fire” lyrics to turn the song into one seemingly about the president.
“He’s got both feet on the ground, and he’s not backing down,” Keys sang, further changing to lyrics to sing, “[he’s] filled with catastrophe and knows he can find a way.”
“Obama’s on fire,” she continued, louder still, and perhaps over-singing to anticipate cheers form the crowd. “He’s president and he’s on fire.”
