"It allows us to hear one another".

After her second, for the song named after the superstar's aunt, Lady Gaga called the award "more than me & my family could ever dream of".

Lady Gaga accepts Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Shallow" onstage during the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on 10 February 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

"And it kept me moving from the block to the big stages and even bigger screens", she said. "Just know that I got you", she told them.

Jada Pinkett-Smith simply said, "We express our pain, power and progress through music.every voice we hear deserves to be honoured and respected", prompting an "Amen" from Michelle Obama.

Without a doubt, the beloved former first lady's cameo appearance will go down as one of the night's biggest surprises, and viewers on twitter couldn't contain their excitement, making the 55-year-old revered political figure a trending topic within minutes. Every story within every voice. The women spoke about how music matters, how it connects and heals, and how it empowers.

Grammys host Alicia Keys got a little help from some big names to help her open the show.

Obama, wearing a shimmering, silver suit, was briefly interrupted as the crowd erupted in cheers and applause at the beginning of her comments.

She continued on: "To the Who Run the World songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story and I know that's true for everybody here". "That really says it all". "There's nothing better than this", Alicia said. The other ladies too shared their thoughts about music. It was an opening so unlike anything you might have expected, and yet she did exactly what she expected to do. 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.
