Following Alicia Keys’ Super Bowl LVIII halftime performance alongside Usher, eagle-eyed fans noticed a discrepancy between the live rendition and the version posted on the NFL’s YouTube channel, hinting at some post-production adjustments.
During the performance, Keys reportedly missed a note in the opening of her 2003 hit “If I Ain’t Got You.”
However, in the video uploaded by the NFL, the flaw appeared to have been digitally rectified, sparking discussion among viewers.
The contrast between the two clips did not go unnoticed, prompting speculation about the reasons behind the alteration.
Keys joined Usher on stage as one of his special guests, treating the audience to a rendition of their romantic duet “My Boo.” The star-studded halftime show also featured appearances by Jermaine Dupri, H.E.R., Lil Jon, and Ludacris, adding to the electrifying atmosphere of the event.
