"Music has always been the one place we can all feel truly free". "Music shows us that all of it matters, every story within every voice, every note in every song".

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

Cuban-born Camila Cabello kicked off the televised show with a dance-heavy performance of her hit single Havana with Latin artists J Balvin, Ricky Martin and Young Thug. She went on to reveal that she struggled to finish the album and videos before she began to show during her pregnancy, and the moment could hardly be any realer as she celebrated her victory of becoming the first solo woman to win this award. "So for security purposes, we had to keep it low", she explained. Michelle was seen sporting a shimmery steel grey pantsuit while Alicia can be seen donning a green gown. She may no longer be in the white house as the First Lady, but she surely has won many hearts.

"I sang that version in one take, & poured my entire life & soul into it", she wrote. "And it led me to all of you and my little monsters, who I love so much".

Michelle Obama makes a surprise appearance to help open the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 10) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. 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?

We talked about it in Melbourne , we talked about how excited [Rafa] was, and me too, that we're going to be on the same team again".

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

Tributes to Aretha Franklin and Dolly Parton are also planned, alongside a Diana Ross performance in honour of her 75th birthday and her musical achievements.

A true diva, Ross owned the room and concluded her moment with an enthusiastic declaration: "Happy birthday to me!" No one knew what to expect from an Alicia Keys-hosted Grammys, but now we know. Her apparent hosting strategy played to her strengths as a storyteller and musician.
