Grammys 2019: Michelle Obama makes surprise appearance

2019 Grammys Alicia Keys opens show with help from Michelle Obama Lady Gaga

LGBTQ women were honored several times last night at the Grammy Award ceremony, but former First Lady Michelle Obama stole the show.

Fresh off hosting last night's Grammys, Alicia Keys surprises fans with new music. Invited onstage by host Alicia Keys, Michelle appeared alongside Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett Smith, but it was the former FLOTUS who had the biggest impact on the crowds.

While one can argue Obama's words were not divisive, her appearance at the music and entertainment awards show was quite a political statement. "They're so important and a lot of artists deal with that", she said. She is one of the most genuine, caring, and thoughtful people I know-there's no one better to help us all celebrate the unifying power of music!

She said, "I wanna welcome you to club keys. Is that right, ladies?"

She also won the first award of the night, best pop duo/group performance, for "Shallow", which she performed with Bradley Cooper.

"They said, I was weird", began Gaga. Mainly the one where Recording Academy president and CEO Neil Portnow said, after past year produced a slate of mostly male winners, that women need to "step up" in order to compete in the music business.

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

J Lo went next, saying: "Back in the Bronx music gave me a reason to dance.and it kept me moving from the block to the big stages and even bigger screens". Now, I call on you to share your own stories with #ShareBlackStories.

Keys may well have added, "It's what we reminisce to", since the recurring theme of the evening was honouring icons.

Carlile also won awards for best American roots performance and best American roots song for "The Joke".
