Michelle Obama, Alicia Keys, & More Share Powerful Grammys Moment

Michelle Obama, Alicia Keys, & More Share Powerful Grammys Moment

The former First Lady of the United States joined Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Jada Pinkett Smith, and host Alicia Keys for a powerful moment to kick off the night.

"From the Motown records I wore out on the south side", she began.

"We're all very excited, and the energy you're going to feel is far different than anything you've ever felt", she said.

"It allows us to hear one another, to invite one another in", Obama added. "Music shows us that all of it matters".

"Give it up for these magnificent goddesses!" said Keys.

It was clear right away that she was trying to create a totally different vibe than most awards shows.

Lady Gaga used that moment to address mental health, which is a major subject of "A Star is Born".

"A lot of artists deal with that, and we have to take care of each other", she said. Michelle was seen sporting a shimmery steel grey pantsuit while Alicia can be seen donning a green gown.

"We had to keep it on the low, especially because our forever first lady was here". "Thank you so much for this gift I am completely shocked".

Twitter has been abuzz with news of the public disagreement between Ariana Grande and Grammy producers.

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.

The music superstar and host of the 2019 Grammy Awards did just that on February 10. This year, 15 women are nominated in the big four categories, including Gaga, Chloe x Halle, Carlile, Janelle Monae, and Cardi B.

This year's first performance was a Latin music-powered performance by Camila Cabello, which featured J Balvin, Ricky Martin, and Arturo Sandoval. But with Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes, Cardi B, and Travis Scott among the evening's performers, there won't be a shortage of star power.

Alicia Keys chose to get some help to kick off the Grammys and it drove the crowd wild. "And I know that's true for everybody here", Obama continued. The country singer will be recognized for a variety of creative accomplishments throughout her lengthy career. Another legend who celebrated herself in style was Diana Ross, who spent her 75th birthday proving she's still got it with an emotional rendition of "The Best Years of My Life".

During the show, Keys skillfully sang a melody of songs - playing two pianos at the same time nonetheless.
