Alicia Keys - Alicia Keys Makes Emotional First Performance Of 'Tears Always Win'

Alicia Keys debuted her brand new single 'Tears Always Win' on 'American Idol' last night (May 9th 2013) to a thrilling reception from the crowd.

The fourteen-time Grammy winner gave an emotional vocal and piano performance of the heart-wrenching song that was bound to get the waterworks going in the venue if the results show didn't. It has been taken from her 2012 album 'Girl On Fire' which serves as her fifth consecutive number one studio album as it topped the charts on both the US Billboard 200 and the US R&B. The single marks the album's fifth release, with the initial title track quickly becoming multiplatinum in the Fall of 2012. 'American Idol''s series 10 runner up Lauren Alaina also made a guest performance with her song 'Barefoot and Buckwild'.

Alicia, who has previously served as a mentor on the show, posted a series of Tweets before and after the show to remind her Twitter followers to tune in. 'I'll be performing my new song "Tears Always Win" 2night on @AmericanIdol!!! Will you be watching? ;-) Come see me!' She posted, and later said that she loved performing the track, which was co-written by Bruno Mars, despite getting 'butterflyz'.
