Alicia Keys goes retro at B.E.T. Awards

By malcolm Published: June 26, 2008

I have to appreciate the love Alicia Keys showed a few of the R&B girls groups the early 90s at the '08 B.E.T. Awards held Tuesday night.
After performing her current hits Superwoman and Teenage Love Affair (with a band!) Keys brought out SWV. to perform their hit ballad Weak followed by a fully reunited Envogue who performed Hold On and then the surviving members of TLC (Chili & T-Boz) came to give us a little bit of Waterfalls out and get a little love from an artist and from the crowd, most of whom actually seem to remember the groups.

I'd embed the Youtube video here but Viacom doesn't play when it comes to copyright infringement, so instead you'll have to go to B.E.T.'s web site and search around a bit. Conversely, you could just wait a couple of days because I'm sure there will be several "encore" presentations of the show.

They all looked and sounded pretty good (though T-Boz who suffers from Sickle Cell Anemia seemed less energetic than usual) and it was a nice flashback and show of respect, especially for us Gen X-ers who used to dance to their music in the clubs back in the day.

Ahh, memories...
