R&B singer Alicia Keys made her first appearance on the X Factor one to remember with a stunning showcase of her latest single.

The American songstress took to the stage to sing Girl On Fire and didn’t disappoint with a pitch perfect performance.

Looking amazing a strapless black pencil dress, the 31-year-old Grammy winner oozed attitude and confidence as she descended from her throne to the centre of the stage, surrounded by ninja dancers.

Girl On Fire is her fifth studio album and is a welcome return for the singer, who first found fame with Fallin’ in 2001.

Speaking to Dermot, she said: "I can’t wait to come back to the UK for an incredible show."

Xtra Factor presenter and former X Factor contestant Olly Murs also performed his new single, Troublemaker on the show.
