Were you in NYC last night? Notice anything different about its iconic skyline around 9PM?

For the second time this month but with a little more pizazz, the Empire State Building flexed its fancy new Philips Color Kinetics LED lighting system muscles for its first-ever light show. A myriad of colors sprinkled the sky perfectly in sync with Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" and "Empire State of Mind".

The new system can display more than 16 million colors in a variety of ways as evidenced by last night's show. Earlier this month during the presidential election, CNN commandeered the ESB to display election results.

It's pretty neat that the ESB has entered into a new era but it kinda makes me think it belongs in Vegas now. [Gawker]
