Twitter Is Fallin' For Alicia Keys As 2019 Grammys Host

Michelle Obama Shows Up at the Grammy Awards; Audience Promptly Lose Their Sh*t Crowd loses it as Michelle Obama takes over Grammys

Music shows us that all of it matters, every story, every voice, every note, in every song.

Their absence was seen as a snub of an awards show that has often shut hip-hop artists out of its top prizes, despite rap's dominance as the biggest music genre in the United States. The other ladies too shared their thoughts about music. As Michelle Obama spoke, the applause increased into thunderous applause and as the cameras spanned the crowd, there were many who stood with tears in their eyes.

Obama, meanwhile, said all she needed to onstage, telling ET afterward that she was just feeling "good". "I don't have personal experience of those kinds of brick walls that you face but I think it's upon us - us as an industry - to make the welcome mat very obvious, breeding opportunities for all people who want to be creative and paying it forward and creating that next generation of artists". The place went wild.

"Music is what we all love, music is what it's all about". Our dignity and sorrows, our hope and joy. "We express our pain, power and progress through music, whether we're creating it or just appreciating it", she said. Every story within every voice.

The former U.S. first lady joined host Alicia Keyes on stage during the latter's opening monologue, along with Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jennifer Lopez. "What is better than this?"

Pinkett Smith added that they "had to keep the secret for Alicia", but also because they had Obama in the building. "Tonight we celebrate the greatness in each other, all of us, through music". Introduced by her adorable 9-year-old grandson, Ross performed a medley of a few hits (opening with "Best Years of My Life") before standing atop a literal pedestal, red dress flowing, and exclaiming, "Happy birthday to meeeeeee!"

Alicia Keys wasn't lying when she told everyone she had them, and she had the home audience in the palm of her hands, too. When Alicia Keys lost "Song of the Year" to John Mayer in 2004, even he knew there'd been some kind of mistake.

Janelle Monáe making us feel.
