Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj & Gabby Douglas Perform at the MTV VMAS / by

Tonight the MTV Video Music Awards took place and Alicia Keys was one of the performers. She took to the stage to perform her new single "Girl On Fire". The song is from her upcoming album of the same name which will be released in late November.

She was joined on stage by Nicki Minaj and a surprise guest that I'm sure no one expected. USA Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas took center stage to do a few moves after she was introduced by Minaj while ending her rap verse. Check it out all after the break.

Good stuff! I like the song and the performance wasn't half bad. From what I've been reading, the song has been receiving mixed reviews since it's release a few days ago, but I can dig it. I like the song, (all three of them) and I thought the performance was pretty good.

The whole Gabby Douglas thing was just a bit random. Bu more power to them. I know she was happy as hell to be flipping on that stage with Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj. What other 16 year old can say that they've done that? What did you think of the performance?
