Alicia Keys is ready for her big comeback. The Grammy-winning songstress warmed up for her much-anticipated performance at the 2012 MTV VMAs on Wednesday. She will perform “Girl on Fire,” the first single off her upcoming album of the same name, live for the first time. It is rumored that she will be joined by Nicki Minaj, who appears on the Inferno version of the song.
Her son Egypt accompanied her to rehearsals at the Staples Center in L.A. “I have a feeling were not gonna be able to keep him off the stage!!!!” tweeted Alicia, who will be seated in front of Wiz Khalifa and Tyga and alongside Taylor Swift.
Check out photos from rehearsals and tune in tonight at 8 p.m. to see her light up the stage.
