Pregnant Alicia Keys Falls During Performance at Essence Festival

The R&B princess takes a tumble while performing at the Essence Music Festival.


Pregnant R&B singer Alicia Keys fell during a performance at the Essence Music Festival. While walking on four-inch heels, she slipped and fell on the stage, landing on her bottom. A consummate professional, Keys got right back up, moved to her piano and continued the performance. The fall comes after Keys' high-profile BET Awards performance, where she performed on top of a piano while pregnant. We know, she's still hot and fabulous. No need for the antics like rolling on top of a piano or rocking stilettos to prove that she still has it. We actually prefer the Keys who sits at the piano, donning a hat under a spotlight, playing and singing her heart out. Just our two cents.
