    Michelle Obama makes surprise appearance

    In her opening, Alicia Keys brought out Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Jada Pinkett Smith. The stars shared stories of how music led them to success, and the former first lady could hardly get a word in without the crowd erupting.

    "From the Motown records I wore out on the South Side (of Chicago) to the 'Who Run the World' songs that fueled me through this last decade, music has always helped me tell my story," Obama said on stage.

    "I know that's true for everybody here. 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 each other in. Music shows us that all of it matters, every story within every voice, every note within every song."

    ​Chris Cornell wins posthumous award

    The late Chris Cornell won the best rock performance award for "When Bad Does Good." His daughter Toni and son Christopher accepted the award for their father Sunday. Cornell, 52, died in May 2017.

    "He is a rock icon, the godfather of grunge and the creator of a movement, whose contribution to music history made a lasting impact across genres and generations," Christopher told the audience, ET reports. "While he touched the hearts of millions, the most important thing he is known for, to us, is being the greatest father and our hero."

    Ariana Grande wins first Grammy

    Ariana Grande skipped this year's ceremony but won her first Grammy Award in her career. The 25-year-old singer won the award for best pop vocals for her album "Sweetener." She tweeted her thanks Sunday evening.
