Five years ago, if it was suggested that Rihanna would eventually sound better than Alicia Keys live, the person making that assumption would have been stoned. However, that is exactly happened throughout 2012, at least until yesterday’s episode of La Meilleure Chanson de L’annee.
In addition to Rihanna’s rendition of “Diamonds”, a pre-taped performance of “Girl on Fire” by Keys aired yesterday on La Meilleure Chanson. What did the R&B diva get for Christmas? Instead of trinkets or cards, Santa arranged for his elves to rebuild her vocal cords. It’s a true miracle of the season!
Watch Keys and her dancers fist-pump their way through their performance on La Meilleure Chanson below:
