Keys to success: Alicia Keys at MGM Grand at Foxwoods

Alicia Keys hit the jackpot in choosing the opening act for her new tour. Miguel just came off a Grammy performance that generated all sorts of heat about the singer. Suddenly, he became the buzzed-about star of the moment.

Oh, and he was nominated for five Grammys that night, too, including one for Song of the Year for "Adorn" - which didn't win in the overall Song of the Year group but did in the R&B category.

So, on Saturday night at MGM Grand at Foxwoods, you'll get a double dose of fabulousness: Miguel and then Keys. She's always wonderful in concert, as a singer and a pianist, and this stop on her latest tour should be no exception. Her set-list wraps up all her biggest hits, from "Girl on Fire" to "Empire State of Mind" to "Fallin'." So fans should be plenty happy.
