Watch Shy and Natalia perform Alicia Keys' 'Girl on Fire' at Mills inauguration

The 11- and 10-year-old Maine girls nailed a rendition of Alicia Keys' 2012 hit single.

Gov. Janet Mills' inauguration on Wednesday featured three different musical performances prior to her address, and one absolutely stole the show.

Between two great performances —  the Portland String Quartet's rendition of Shaker song "Simple Gifts," widely credited as being written by Mainer Joseph Brackett, and the Franklin County Fiddlers of Mt. Blue High School in Farmington —  was one by two girls from Maine.

And the crowd went wild — including Gov. Mills, seen dancing behind the two as they belted out Keys' lyrics.
