As host of the 2019 Grammy Awards, it was expected that Alicia Keys would take the stage at some point during the 3.5-hour show. But we had no idea she would flex on all of us by playing two pianos at the same damn time!

After showing off a bit with her dual piano playing skills (shout to Hazel Scott!), Keys then performed a wide-ranging medley of cover songs, including Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly,” Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams,” Drake’s “In My Feelings,” Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up” and so much more.

Unlike J.Lo’s Jentrified Motown tribute, Twitter was all the way here for Alicia showing us why she changed her last name to “Keys”:
My mom's already disappointed enough that after 12 years of piano lessons, the only song I can play is "Forget You" by Cee-Lo, so I really hope she didn't see @aliciakeys playing TWO pianos at the same time. #GRAMMYs https://t.co/AwAEN5VFyd

Here's the deal, that performance by Alicia Keys was insane. For anyone who has ever tried played the piano, for anyone who has ever tried to sing. She is an AMAZING musician. I love her. More musicians hosting this show. #GRAMMYs

So… Alicia Keys is coming back every year to host the Grammys, right? Trust me, I did 15 years of piano growing up — playing two at once without looking at one of them is no joke. That’s quadruple lutz toe-loop level good.
