The performances during the 2013 inauguration ceremony aren’t the only ones getting people talking: Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Brad Paisley and Stevie Wonder all performed during the night’s inaugural balls. While Hudson performed Al Green‘s “Let’s Stay Together,” Wonder sang “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” and Paisley crooned “American Saturday Night,” it was Keys’ take on her hit “Girl on Fire” that got the most attention.
Instead of “Girl on Fire,” Keys changed the lyrics to “Obama’s on fire.” “He’s the president and he’s on fire,” she sang, as can be seen in the above video. “Obama’s on fire. Obama’s on fire.”
This isn’t the first time a performer has played around with his or her lyrics for the sake of President Barack Obama. Jay-Z attended an Obama rally prior to election day and changed its words so he sang, “I got 99 problems but a Mitt [Romney] ain’t one.” Whose twist on their own music did you like best?
