Alicia Keys’ husband, veteran music producer Swizz Beatz, took to Instagram to defend his wife, urging people to focus on the overall greatness of the performance rather than a minor glitch.
Usher’s Super Bowl Halftime performance was widely praised for his smooth and energetic rendition of classic hits. However, the spotlight shifted to Alicia Keys, who faced criticism for a brief vocal glitch during her performance of “If I Ain’t Got You.” Dressed in a stunning red ensemble with an elongated cape, Keys’ high soprano briefly turned heads as the cape dropped.
The fallout from the moment was significant, with clips of the off-note circulating online and critics dissecting the performance. In response, the NFL and Apple Music edited the Halftime show on YouTube, leading viewers to notice a considerable difference in Keys’ vocals between the live taping and the re-uploaded, pitch-corrected version.
Alicia Keys’ husband, veteran music producer Swizz Beatz, took to Instagram to defend his wife, urging people to focus on the overall greatness of the performance rather than a minor glitch. He highlighted the spectacular dress covering the entire stadium and celebrated the collaboration with Usher, concluding, “We don’t do negative vibes on this side; we make history.”
Despite joining Usher for a performance of their 2004 single “My Boo,” Keys and Usher faced online criticism for their closeness, considering both are in long-term relationships. However, the vocal hiccup remained the primary point of negative attention.
Leading up to the Halftime show, uncertainty surrounded Usher’s performance, but he paid tribute to his rich catalog, featuring hits like “Daddy’s Home” and “Yeah!”
