After Dua Lipa‘s opening number, host Alicia Keys began her intro by saying
“Ya’ll didn’t I was going to do this alone…“
And out walked think Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez joined by former first lady Michelle Obama.
Gaga, JLo, Pinkett Smith all shared how music has affected their lives but Obama barely got a word out before the audience erupted in WILD applause. After a good minute pause, Michelle said,
“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. It allows us to hear one another. To invite one another in.”
