Alicia Keys performs at halftime of NBA All-Star Game (Video)

alicia keys halftimeThe NBA All-Star Game didn’t just have all-star talent on the basketball court — it also had top-level musical talent to entertain the crowd. While Ne-Yo got things started before the game, Alicia Keys handled the halftime duties.

Keys, fresh off performing the national anthem at the Super Bowl, began playing “Empire State of Mind” on her piano and then moved on to “Girl on Fire.” Keys progressed on to her hit song “No One,” and closed her set with “New Day.”

It will be tough for any performer to match the way Beyonce lit it up at halftime of the Super Bowl, but the 14-time Grammy winner more than held her own.

Alicia Keys’ national anthem at Super Bowl goes over (Video)

Alicia Keys Super BowlAlicia Keys performed the national anthem leading up to the Super Bowl on Sunday, and she went “over” on the over/under line for the length of her performance.

Sitting at a white piano and wearing a long, red dress, Keys started off slowly and took well over the 2:15 mark that most sportsbooks placed as the line for gambling purposes.

Covers.com unofficially had Keys at 2:41 for the anthem, while RJ Bell of Pregame.com says Keys clocked in at 2:35.

And for those of you degenerates who bet on the coin toss, it was heads and won by the Ravens.
