Alicia Keys says Grammys will be about the 'power of music'

Alicia Keys says Grammys will be about the 'power of music'

Dear Bradley Cooper, please cast Alicia Keys in your next Star Is Born remake.

The hilarious parody shows Alicia, who is set to host this year's Grammys, ask James for advice because he hosted the awards ceremony in 2017.

Keys and Corden's version was a surprisingly moving version of the Star Is Born song, with the lyrics altered to reference both of their Grammys hosting duties.

Grande's decision to pull out was prompted by a disagreement with the show's producers over what songs she would perform, the magazine reported, as the singer wanted full control over her set list, which she wanted to include recent hit "7 Rings".

"I know what it feels like to be on that stage, and I'm going to bring that vibe and energy", Keys said in January when the Recording Academy tapped her as host. "Maybe you could give me some advice".

Liam Hemsworth reveals Miley Cyrus took his last name after marriage
Liam Hemsworth has revealed that wife Miley Cyrus is now Miley Hemsworth. "I think it was honestly one of the best parts about it. And as many newlyweds know, there's something special when you can start calling your significant other husband and wife.

The Grammys host even slipped some of her own lyrics into the parody, she sang: "This girl is on fire".

"Comfy shoes. After four hours, you'll find yourself drinking cheap booze", Corden joked. "Act like you've been there". "So many times you come to these things as an artist and you're juggling so many things and there's so much pressure on you". Keys first topped the Billboard 200 back in 2001 with her debut album, "Songs in A Minor".

Audra Mae, a Putnam City High School graduate, co-wrote songs tied into three Grammy nods: "Fall in Line", by Christina Aguilera featuring Demi Lovato, nominated for Best Pop Duo / Group Performance; "Didn't I", a track from Kelly Clarkson's "Meaning of Life", nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album; and "Church", a track from Fall Out Boy's "M A N I A", nominated for Best Rock Album.

This clip is definitely one of the best ways to get us amped for the Grammys (as if we weren't already).

And now Alicia Keys will be setting the tempo for the 2019 Grammys. Luckily, there are only a few days left until the biggest night in music.
