iHeartRadio Awards 2019: Alicia Keys' son Egypt, eight, wins over crowd as he dances with his mom

She may have been one of the biggest stars at the 2019 iHeartRadio Awards, but Alicia Keys was upstaged by her enthusiastic eight-year-old son Egypt. 

The songstress, 38, who was the winner of this year's Innovator Award, delighted fans by bringing her son onto the stage for a performance of her song, Raise A Man, inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Thursday.   

Egypt quickly won over audience members as he played the piano alongside his singing mother, before breaking out into a silly dance.

The youngster appeared calm and focused as he played the piano beside Alicia as she belted out the sweet track.

Egypt wore a sparkling white jacket, trousers, and blue bandana tied around his head, while his mother sported a sleeveless black dress and purple scarf over her hair. 

Alicia had the audience in the palm of her hand as she sang the moving song, a performance only made more meaningful by the fact her son was also apart of the performance. 

As Alicia brought the song to a close, that was when Egypt won over the crowd by breaking into the 'floss' dance. 

The 2019 iHeartRadio Awards show started off with a bang, with a powerful performance by Halsey and her rumored new love, Yungblud.   

The songstress, 24, first appeared on stage in an elaborate black coat while singing her latest hit song, Without Me, solo.

Halsey captivated the crowd as she performed her riveting track about a toxic relationship.
