Cardi B, who was to perform later on Sunday, could break that trend and take home not only her first Grammy, but potentially become the first rapper since 2004 to win the coveted album of the year award for her Invasion of Privacy.

Michelle Obama made a surprise appearance at the 2019 Grammys on Sunday night.

The 2019 Grammy Awards red carpet and show served up some fierce gowns, but it's the trousers that have us talking!

Reacting to this development, many social media users heaped praise on Michelle, with some wondering whether she might run for president in 2020.

And the very next voice to speak was so honored and respected that Michelle Obama had no choice but to stop speaking altogether.

The beverage company also experimented with Black Cherry Vanilla Coke and a coffee-flavor called Coca-Cola Blak, among others. In introducing the new Orange Vanilla Coke , it hopes to ensure the Coke brand doesn't begin to feel stale with consumers.

The ladies appeared on stage to talk about the important role that music had played in their lives. The cheers from the crowd were deafening. "So many times you come to these things as an artist and you're juggling so many things and there's so much pressure on you".

"Whether we like country, or rap, or rock - music helps us share ourselves", Obama, 55, told the crowd.

Lopez received a standing ovation - that backflip! - after her Motown tribute with NE-YO, Alicia Keys and Smokey Robinson. "So for security purposes, we had to keep it low", she explained. Considering that women, per Billboard, will have a larger presence at this year's Grammys ceremony after being "nearly muted" the prior year, Alicia is right. Tonight, Keys revealed that Mayer actually broke off a piece of his prize to give it to her, and the two reunited to bring their shared Grammy back together after 15 years apart.

@Pascaleblaise tweeted, "This Grammy performance of Alicia Keys was wonderful". It was exactly what the show needed to get away from last year's controversial remarks from Recording Academy president Neil Portnow.

The group's strong message goes against last year's statement from Portnow, who said that women needed to "step up" to reach the same levels of success as their male counterparts.
