According to Alicia's rep, Sunday's performance was a homage to the pioneering pianist, Hazel Scott whom the singer paid tribute to before starting her performance.

"I've been thinking so much about the people and the music that have inspired me, and I want to give a shout out to Hazel Scott because I always wanted to play to pianos."

She continued:

"You know those songs that live inside of you and live inside of me, and you just love it so much, because it was done so well that you wish you wrote it?

That's how I feel about these songs. I wish I wrote them."

The impressive medley started with Roberta Flack’s 1973 tune Killing Me Softly merging into Juice World’s "Lucid Dreams" followed by Nat King Cole’s classic "Unforgettable".
