Alicia Keys unveiled a “new side” of herself during her stunning performance of “Love Looks Better” at the 2020 Billboard Awards show Wednesday night.  

Alicia stepped onto the stage in an eye-catching glittery body suit, accompanied by a few dancers, a band, and a gorgeous bright red piano. “Love Looks Better” was featured on her latest album, ALICIA, which recently topped Billboard’s R&B albums chart. 

This marks Alicia’s first BBMA performance since her 2012 duet with Stevie Wonder. 

Keys was among the many performers at the BBMA’s including Post Malone, Bad Bunny, Doja Cat and more.

Brandy made her debut BBMA performance with a medley of her hits including “Almost Doesn’t Count” and her b7 singles, “Borderline” and “No Tomorrow Pt.2” featuring Ty Dolla $ign. 

Once again, Brandy showed us why she’s called the “Vocal Bible,” hitting high notes like only she could. 

John Legend dedicated his emotional performance of “Never Break,” from his latest album Bigger Love to his wife Chrissy Teigen. This was his first performance since the couple announced last month that they lost their third child due to pregnancy complications.

For his television debut, SAINt JHN delivered an electrifying red performance of his single “Roses” including  the Imabek remix.

And finally, three decades later, En Vogue show us they still know how to close out the show with a performance of their empowering anthem “Free Your Mind.”
