Not only did Keys perform a series of songs ranging from Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)" to Roberta Flack's "Killing Me Softly With His Song" to Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" she did it while flanked by two pianos. At one point during her medley, she blew fans away when she played on both pianos at the same time.

"Music is just, you know, those songs that just live inside of you. It lives inside of me. And you just love it so much because it was done so well that you wish you wrote it. That's how I feel about these songs. I wish I wrote them," she said.
