Just call her firestarter. Alicia Keys set the stage ablaze as she performed in Detroit at the Joe Louis Arena. The show was a stop on Keys' current Set the World on Fire tour. She didn't need a molotov for the job, her musical talent created enough heat to blow the roof off of the venue.

Starting off from behind a curtain, it was pulled back to reveal a silhouette of Keys through a window. The veil was lifted and revealed Ms. Keys dressed to kill in couture. Wearing a shimmering geometric top- reminiscent of the Stereo Negative installation at Dlectricity- paired with black leggings, t-strap pumps, and punctuated by her signature wide-brim fedora, she owned the look from head to toe.

Her moves were seductive and seamless, as she strutted around stage, the lights accentuating her body perfectly with every move she made. Ms. Keys stunning voice filled the arena as she sang a large range of songs, including a massive amount of hits.

The talented songstress took a seat at the grand piano, and played to accompany her songs. Impressive to see, this was a highlight for many in the crowd who came to witness her signature skills at the piano.

Alicia Keys is a multi-talented performer and artist who set the night on fire, extinguishing it as she exited the stage after her final encore that night.
