Alicia Keys & Rihanna Perform On The X Factor

Alicia Keys - Medley

Rihanna "Russian Roulette"

Alicia Keys sang "Empire State Of Mind," "Doesn't Mean Anything," & "No One" during her set on this week's X Factor results show in support of her upcoming album The Element Of Freedom (December 15th). I can't stress enough how gorgeous "Doesn't Mean Anything" is live! It's a shame that song didn't find more success over here to allow Alicia to perform it more. Rihanna also performed on the show, singing "Russian Roulette" off her new album Rated R. Ya know, it's not that she does a bad job of it, but I just don't like this song live for RiRi. I would actually go as far as to say that I think it's a good song, but it would've been more enjoyable had somebody else recorded it. That said, the Rated R tracks from James Fauntleroy, The-Dream, & Tricky Stewart are superb!
