However, Dr. Gates recently explained Alicia backed out of process when her grandmother warned the singer not to do it.

Dr. Gates explained: "Alicia Keys, who I love as a friend of mine, agreed to be in the first series, and as you know, she’s mixed".

"Her African-American grandmother said ‘Baby…’, we send people a form, we need as much information as you can give us. Like the names of your parents, where they were born, grandparents etc., whatever you can give us. It makes our job a lot simpler right?"

"Her grandmother said ‘Baby, you can’t be in the series. I can’t tell you why, but you can’t be in the series.’"
