P!nk covers Alicia Keys’ “Girl On Fire” for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge [Video]

This week Radio 1 played host to a great Live Lounge session as one great took on another great’s song, as rockstar P!nk, real name Alecia Moore, took on her namesake Alicia Keys‘ anthem “Girl On Fire,” giving it extra edge with her rock vibe and live band in tow.

P!nk’s reason for picking to cover an Alicia Keys track? “Because I love her and we share the same first name,” she says. P!nk may love her – but apparently not enough to learn all the words to the song as she had to read the lyrics from a piece of paper as she sung during the live session – but she’s forgiven as her voice sounded flawless to the very end. And dare I say it, better than the original? Watch below and let us know what you think.
