Crowd loses it as Michelle Obama takes over Grammys

How I knew Alicia Keys would host Grammy Awards 2019

Kacey Musgraves, Childish Gambino, Brandi Carlile and Ariana Grande, who will be a no-show this year, were also among the pre-ceremony winners.

Starting with Lady Gaga, each woman noted how much music means to them personally.

The former First Lady visited the Grammys to support her friends, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lady Gaga who were also present on stage with her. It was exactly what the show needed to get away from last year's controversial remarks from Recording Academy president Neil Portnow. "They're so important and a lot of artists deal with that", she said. "That my look, my choices, my sound, that it wouldn't work", she said.

"I'm very proud to have been a part of it", Lopez gushed.

Then stepped in Lopez, who said, "Back in the Bronx, music gave me a reason to dance..." It reminds me of where I come from, but it also reminds me of all the places I can go.

Michelle Obama joining the show to champion the importance of music.

Already a show with a strong lineup of female performers and nominees, the Grammys sprung another surprise by including former USA first lady Michelle Obama in an opening that also featured Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, actress Jada Pinkett Smith and host Alicia Keys talking about the power of music. "But here's what I know".

"Music helps us share our selves-our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys", she continued. It allows us to hear one another.to invite each other in. "Music shows us that all of it matters". The brazen comment drew outrage and Portnow said he would step down when his contract expires this summer. "[They need] to step up because I think they would be welcome", Portnow said.

According to The Hill: "Ya'll didn't think I was coming out here by myself, did you?"

The 73-year-old later slipped into a tasseled white dress as she took to the stage, with her goddaughter Miley, to perform a stunning rendition of "Jolene" in a special performance honouring the country star's career.
