Tonight, all music lovers will be tuning into MTV’s VMAs, which is set to air from 8-10. p.m. One of its scheduled performers, Alicia Keys, is seen in the above behind-the-scenes photos preparing for her big comeback. She brought along her son Egypt, who looked like he was enjoying the large stage at the Staples Center. She will be performing “Girl On Fire,” the first single off her forthcoming album. Nicki Minaj, who appeared on the Inferno version of the song, is rumored to rock the stage with her.

Keys showed her excitement on Twitter and many fans can agree that she’ll put on a memorable performance. Other performers include Rihanna, Lil Wayne, Minaj, One Direction, Pink, Green Day, Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift, 2 Chainz, and Demi Lovato.
