Michelle Obama Makes Surprise Appearance At 2019 Grammy Awards

"I'mma take care of you tonight". "It allows us to hear one another, to invite each other in".

Outspoken Cardi B, whose personal life and hit records have dominated pop culture for the past two years, turned in a raunchy performance of "Money" dressed in a black mesh and silver body suit.

Gaga also jumped in with her own thoughts about the power of music saying, "They said I was 'Weird, ' that my look, my choices, my sound, that it wouldn't work".

After her second, for the song named after the superstar's aunt, Lady Gaga called the award "more than me & my family could ever dream of".

Pinkett Smith added that they "had to keep the secret for Alicia", but also because they had Obama in the building. Our dignity and sorrows, our hope and joy.

Alicia Keys (The Voice), who is a 15-time victor and 29-time nominee, takes over as host for the 2019 Grammys show at STAPLES Center. No one knew what to expect from an Alicia Keys-hosted Grammys, but now we know. Later on stage, she showed off her raw musical talents by playing two pianos at once, and covering songs from Nat King Cole to Kings of Leon.

Kacey Musgraves and Cardi B cleared up in the traditionally male dominated categories of "Album of the Year" and "Best Rap Album" respectively, while Dolly Parton and Diana Ross received lifetime achievement awards. "Maybe I need to start smoking weed". People often say they're surprised in moments like this, but her level of shock was very obviously the real deal.
