Michelle Obama makes surprise Grammys appearance to support friend Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys hosts the 2019 Grammy Awards, which will features such performers as Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Cardi B, Dua Lipa, Post Malone, Little Big Town, Janelle Monae, Dolly Parton, Yolanda Adams, Travis Scott, Katy Perry and Diana Ross.

The former U.S. first lady received a rapturous response as she appeared on stage alongside the ceremony's host Keys, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Between her AOTY win, her other victories, and her big performances during the broadcast, she owned the night, re-affirmed that she belongs on the biggest stages possible, and let the world know that she is a superlative artist. She and her husband, former US President Barack Obama, signed deals for a book apiece with Penguin Random House a month after Obama left office in January 2017.

"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 one another in. And I know that's true for everybody here", Obama said. Musgraves performed the ballad "Rainbow" with muted grace to match her natural charisma, while Brandi Carlile (who won three awards early in the night but none during the telecast) positively crushed "The Joke". "They said I was weird".

They all spoke about the inspiring power of music throughout their lives.

"You might be aware that I've got my hair cut in between, since I last saw you in between the Grammys and now", John said. "Music has always been the one place we can all feel truly free". "Look, if there's people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain and the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows-you don't need this right here, I promise you, you already won".

But then it was the former first lady's turn.

The ex-first lady's appearance at the award ceremony evoked a mixed reaction on social media, with both Michelle Obama's proponents and critics vocally making it known where their sympathies lie.
