Earlier today (Oct. 14), Alicia Keys vowed to unveil a new side of herself ahead of tonight’s 2020 Billboard Music Awards, and the R&B luminary kept her promise with her stunning performance of “Love Looks Better.”
Performing live at The Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, Keys sauntered onstage with her glittery dress, bold bangs, and pair of dancers in tow. Not only did she flaunt her powerful vocals, but she also raced to the piano and later a beat machine to display her versatility during her lively rendition.
Keys is coming off the release of her new album Alicia, which scored a top-five debut on the Billboard 200. Her latest effort spoke to her newfound sense of liberation and discovery as a woman. “I am my own beautiful woman, and I am in a space whether you like or you don’t like it, it doesn’t really matter to me,” she told Billboard in August. “I definitely have to live in my truth and in my genuine authentic energy. So that’s been a new discovery, and I’ve been really loving getting to know these other sides of myself and that particular side of myself.”
