Michelle Obama Makes Surprise Appearance at the Grammys

Grammys 2019

Music shows us that all of it matters every story with every voice every note with every song.

"Give it up for these magnificent goddesses!" said Keys. Then, Jennifer Lopez performed a medley of Motown hits, bringing Smokey Robinson and Ne-Yo onstage with her. Chloe x Halle sang music by soul icon Donny Hathaway, and Fantasia and Yolanda Adams paid tribute to the late Aretha Franklin.

For her first time hosting the Grammys, Alicia came out very chill and very cool, with a smile and clearly enjoying the vibe she was feeling in the room.

The Recording Academy behind the awards gala has faced a barrage of criticism for not embracing diversity within its ranks, after almost muting women nominees at the show previous year.

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

Fresh-faced (and always makeup-free!) Grammy host Alicia Keys pulled off multiple costume changes-but we loved the curve-hugging red dress and attractive Bulgari necklace and earrings she wore on the red carpet, preshow.

Grammys the latest casualty of this tumultuous award season
Songstress Alicia Keys , a 15-time Grammy victor , is set to host Sunday´s ceremony - the first woman to do so in 14 years. Carlile is the most nominated woman with six nominations, including bids for song and record of the year with "The Joke".

"We just won our first of Grammy nominations for the night. And music told me not to listen to them". "Thank you LA! Back to NYC!" she wrote. Now, I call on you to share your own stories with #ShareBlackStories. The infectiousness of Cardi B's energy is simply undeniable, especially when she's as into what she's doing as with this performance, okurrr? While he was nominated for song of the year for his single "In my Blood", that Grammy went to Childish Gambino for "This is America". Here's how they fared on music's biggest night. But it was female artists who dominated nominations in the top categories. Collaborations include Camila Cabello and J Balvin; Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers; and Dua Lipa and St. Vincent.

Alicia Keys made a decision to get some help to kick off the Grammys and it drove the crowd wild.

Last December, she delighted fans on social media, wearing a sparkly £3,000 pair of boots by Balenciaga for an interview with Sarah Jessica Parker, 53, as part of her book tour. With the help of Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Miley Cyrus, Maren Morris and more, the Queen of Country celebrated herself and her vast collection of iconic songs. Her album also won Best Recording Package.

Presenters include Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bridges, Alessia Cara, Smokey Robinson, BTS, Cedric the Entertainer, Bob Newhart, John Mayer, and more.
