There was no Stephen Colbert cameo during Alicia Keys‘ set last night at the Verizon Center, but there was still some additional star power in the house. This was yet another phone-booth event attended by members of the Obama family, in this case the First Lady and the Obama daughters. There was quite a stir before Keys’ set began when word somehow got around that the Obamas were watching from a darkened box seat. Still, once Keys got going, she was not to be upstaged, earning the stadium’s undivided attention with a dramatic entry and powerful performance.
