    The performance at the Super Bowl was a borefest to be honest. I stayed up more to watch the Super Bowl, and then Alicia came up. I thought, okay it's going to be really really good. But yeah.. I thought, when she's gonna stop/ or when will this one end?

    And the piano was so unnecessary...

    It was about celebrities getting paid to watch the runway shows on Fashion Week.
    WTH??? Alicia is a major artist.
    I wouldn't pay to much attention to that

    She did a great job. I was a bit nervous about it but everything was great. The crowd was incredible.

    Not long before she sings the US National Anthem. I hope she does it justice.

    I'm pretty sure Alicia will go to the Philippines again for a concert, she has done it for The Diary of Alicia Keys and As I Am, and since she got pregnant in 2010, she didn't really tour for The Element of Freedom. I'm sure she go here again to bring her Girl on Fire music to us in Asia!

    Alicia Keys really knows how to promote herself and her music. She always has.

    Her promotion this era has been crazy, for example the UK, she came once in Oct to promote the single, once in Nov to promote the album and is in the UK next week to promote again. Then she'll be on tour there later this year.

    Few American artists promote so relentlessly abroad.

    I am so happy with how she is promoting the era! I see her everywhere unexpectedly! I wish this album scans at least 1 million copies in the USA throughout its chart activity!

    Alicia Keys Sued Over 'Girl on Fire': Is It Based on a Blogger's Ear?

    After reading that the Grammy-winning singer had supposedly re-purposed his song "Hey There Lonely Girl," Earl Shuman files a copyright infringement lawsuit.

    Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" is currently featured prominently in an American Express commercial and this week sits at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 . It's also the subject of a copyright infringement lawsuit filed last week in California federal court.

    The plaintiff is Earl Shuman, an accomplished songwriter who in 1962 co-authored the composition, "Lonely Boy," a song which itself reached No. 2 on Billboard's chart after being recorded by Eddie Holman as "Hey There Lonely Girl."

    Shuman believes there's something about Keys' song that sounds too familiar. Unfortunately, his lawsuit is rather bereft of important details, substituting an entertainment blogger's ear in lieu of any demonstration of substantial similarity between "Girl on Fire" and "Lonely Boy/Girl."
    That's not to say there won't be people out there who won't compare the two songs (here and here ) and spot a likeness, particularly in the way that Keys intones three notes while singing the words, "lonely girl."
    One of the people who noted a supposed similarity was Roger Friedman at Showbiz411, who wrote in late November of what he believed to be an uncredited sample. "In the middle of the song, Alicia sings a couplet or so from Eddie Holman’s 1970 classic 'Hey There Lonely Girl,'" he wrote . "The song was written by Leon Carr and Earl Shuman, who are both gone to rock 'n' roll heaven."

    After Friedman's post went up, Shuman apparently contacted the writer to note that he was still alive. Friedman responded by acknowledging this, questioning why Keys hadn't cleared rights, and to say that Shuman had a "good lawyer" on the case.
    A lawsuit was indeed filed, and -- surprise -- the complaint quotes a substantial portion of Friedman's original post, including a sentence that appears to have now been removed: "Keys only uses two seconds of the original, but it helps makes her record," he wrote.
    If true, one would think that Shuman's assumed good lawyer would have no problem spelling out the alleged infringement.

    nstead, in Shuman's lawsuit against Keys, Sony Music Entertainment and others, the plaintiff points to Friedman's blog, saying, "While the Showbiz411.com statements that Shuman has 'gone to rock and roll heaven' and concerning 'two seconds' of use are not accurate, Plaintiff alleges that the above observations by Showbiz411, in their essence, apt."
    Shuman's lawyer attaches a copy of his client's songsheet, but hardly goes into any discussion of Keys' song except to spend a few graphs on its international success and the allegation that it includes a drum sample from another song.
