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.

Michelle Obama received a standing ovation when she joined Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and Jada Pinkett-Smith at the 61st Grammy awards. "Just know that I got you", she told them.

"If there's people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain and the snow and spending their hard earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don't need this right here, I promise you", he added.

Lopez talked about her meteoric rise, as well. "And it kept me moving from the block to big stages and even bigger screens", she said. The place went wild. "I would love to ensure the peace and the good energy in the room so that our shoulders can all drop and we can feel the true blessing of having music as a universal language".


Heading into music's biggest night, rap artists Kendrick Lamar and Drake topped the nominations, with eight and seven, respectively.

After her appearance, Obama said on Twitter that "a big part of friendship is showing up for your girls - that's why I was thrilled to be there for the one and only @aliciakeys at the #GRAMMYs".

"Alright. We have a show to do". "Whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves". "It allows us to hear one another, to invite one another in".

The moment came at the start of a show showcasing the female talent in the music business, one year after women were largely snubbed in the major categories.


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.

After Obama's remarks, Keys began the show.

Keys paused to absorb the moment and referenced the Beyonce song in asking, "Who run the world?". "So much love for Michelle".
