Alicia Keys took to the stage to perform her songs "New Day" as well as the single from her upcoming album "Girl on Fire". She marched through the audience with an amped dance crew as well as a live band. She did the damn thing. I could watch any type of performance from her.

Next up was Brandy with a performance of her second single "Wildest Dreams" from ehr new album "Two Eleven". All of her performances for this era have been flawless. Her hir has been on point too. Gotta love her, and this song. I'm hooked on it!

Next, Keyshia Cold tore down the stage with her performance of "Trust and Believe". This track is lifted from her album "Woman to Woman" which hits stores November 19th and serves as the second single.

Ciara ripped the stage apart with her debut performance of "One Woman Army", it's the title track of her new album which is due out next month. She also performed "Sorry'. To spice things up she was joined with Missy Elliott and the two performed the classic "1, 2 Step". The Missy shined with "9th Inning".  The crowd loved them and so did I.

Lastly, Eric Benet, Anthony Hamilton, Luke James, India Arie and SWV all hit the stage for a few performances. Check them out below.
