Michelle Obama’s Grammy Appearance Splits Audiences

One of the most notable moments to come out of the Grammy Awards ceremony on Sunday night was unfortunately a cameo from former first lady Michelle Obama.

The crowd full of celebrities embraced the former first lady with open arms as she walked onto the stage holding hands with Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Lopez, Gaga and Smith spoke about the music — and them Michelle Obama began speaking.

Before she could get a full sentence out, the crowd started screaming and cheering with applause.

“Music has always helped me tell my story … whether we like country or rap or rock, music helps us share ourselves, our dignity and sorrows, our hopes and joys,” said Obama.

“It allows us to hear one another. To invite one another in,” Mrs. Obama said.

Here’s how it went down:

Following the ceremony, Obama took to social media to say she was “thrilled” to participate in such event.

“For me, a big part of friendship is showing up for your girls ― whether that’s for a birthday, a quick catch-up after work, or a major milestone,” Obama wrote along with posting a picture of herself with Lopez, Gaga, Smith, and Grammys host Alicia Keys.

“So I was thrilled to be there for the one and only @aliciakeys at the #GRAMMYs. She is one of the most genuine, caring, and thoughtful people I know — there’s no one better to help us all celebrate the unifying power of music!”

While some viewers were overjoyed with her appearance, others recognized it as another political statement from Hollywood.
