Michelle Obama Makes Surprise Appearance At The Grammys

During Sunday's Grammys, Alicia also performed a piano-driven medley of songs she wish she wrote, from Drake's "In My Feelings" to Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable".

There was a protracted segment devoted to 2019 MusiCares person of the year, Dolly Parton. But, instead of being the only person singing the praises of music, she had a surprise.

For Lopez, the music got her moving back in the Bronx, which launched her multifaceted career as a dancer on "In Living Color" back in the day.

Alicia first introduced the Grammys, spoke, then welcomed the women on stage with the following greeting.

The Grammys has frequently shut out hip-hop artists from its top prizes, despite rap's dominance as the biggest music genre in the United States. After sharing the stage with the likes of Lady Gaga, John Mayer and even Michelle Obama, she reminded viewers of her musical prowess with an epic performance of her own. "Music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrow, our hopes and joys. It allows us to heal one another, to invite each other in". "Music shows us that all of it matters, every story within every voice, every note in every song".

Soon after, Lady Gaga would return to the stage to accept the night's first broadcasted prize for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her and Bradley Cooper's "Shallow".

Michelle, 55, is in the middle of her huge book tour but made a special appearance for her pal Alicia.

It was also an important evening for Canadian musicians.

Rapper Childish Gambino's This is America, about police brutality and racism, won the first big award - song of the year - as well as best music video, and best rap performance. Missing from the line-up is Ariana Grande who seems to be feuding with the show's producer, Ken Ehrlich.
