In lieu of the usual monologue with zingers and shout-outs to the stars filling the auditorium, first-time host Alicia Keys kicked off the 61st Annual Grammy Awards with a star-studded lovefest, including a raucous ovation for former First Lady Michelle Obama. Oh, yeah. But that's why we loved it.
The surprise was welcomed and praised by many. Whatever IT is, she's got it.
"Oh wow! Alicia, you brought me to tears AND gave me permagrin during your double piano performance!" a fan wrote.

"We gotta take care of each other".
"But look, the point is, you've already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you're a hero in your hometown", Drake continued.
Presenters include Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bridges, Alessia Cara, Smokey Robinson, BTS, Cedric the Entertainer, Bob Newhart, John Mayer, and more.
