Carson: Our next guest began in music when most of us were learning to tie our shoes, five grammys, two soul train records, two billboard awards and a v.M.A. And who knows what else. Please welcome the one and only alicia keys.
Carson: This girl is treekin' out. Come say hi to everybody outside. Alicia is here and the premiere of her new video 'how come you don't call me' which we'll talk about in a second. I haven't even talked to you since the grammys, let's go back for a second, five, i mean that is sick. New artist, song, the whole nine yards. When you got the first one
Alicia: thank you. Thank you.
Carson: Listen, when you got the first one were you like oh, yeah i'm cleanin' house tonight.
Alicia: No, not even a little bit that's in the even what i was thinking. I couldn't believe the first two i found out about were the pre-telecast.
Carson: They one even on the show.
Alicia: Right! I was like what?! I don't even have to worry about anything it's an easy night it was just you know to even get that before you got there was like, i mean it's nothin' to worry about for me it's just all about everybody right here and performin'
Alicia: and it's y'all. Thank you!
Alicia: thank you.
Carson: They are all in a tizzy brad pitt confirmed he will be on the show
Carson: He called in earlier at the top of the show and said he was comin'.
Alicia: Man, that's bangin'.
Carson: Pretty cool, right. Aside from your record selling like 10 million copies, i think now and the grammys, what other -- what else has happened, have you met anybody that you freaked out over the way they do you, have you played with anybody? Was it the show maybe at radio city, what's another highlight.
Alicia: Man, numerous highlights definitely the show at show at radio city was crazy, crazy!
Alicia: thank you. I mean, being' home and bein' able to perform at home at aples i've always passed by my whole entire life and sayin'
Alicia: sayin' exactly.
Carson: Spelled wrong.
Alicia: Probably but it was good. I was able to actually meet stevie wonder the other day actually during the grammys i was able to meet him and spoke to him and he asked me what song i wanted him to play. I was like, ummm
Alicia: of course i couldn't think of anything i know all of his songs and i was drawin' a blank it was really the bomb and like 3 days ago i was able to jam on stage with prince!
Carson: How did that go?
Alicia: Wow! Wow!
Alicia: so, i was -- that was it.
Carson: How you did find prince. We had him on this show. We didn't hit it off well, we had a few issues. He is left of center, a great guy but a little left of center.
Alicia: He's very, very his own person and not scared to be his own person. I really admire that about him.
Carson: He doesn't believe in time. We have to watch this video. No, literally a good thing. We have to play this we are running long i wanted to chat with you do you want us to know anything about it.
Alicia: This is 'triumph of love', speakin' of prince, off the chain big 'up to my man mike epps you'll see why. You know the situation of when you really want a person to call you and things are goin' a little funny so that's what this video is about.
Alicia: and one of the hottest parts of the video. -- Thank you y'all, see they feel me.
Alicia: One of the hot-- hardest parts of the video half-way through the video we flipped it and switched live so a different flow.
