Date February 13, 2019

The 61st Grammy Awards was full of beautiful surprises, but by far the best threat of the night was Michelle Obama's unannounced appearance to open the show. While the internet went on a meltdown, her mom had the best reaction hands down.

Everyone was starstruck!

Mrs. Obama got resounding applause from the guests when she took the stage alongside Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, and Alicia Keys whose job it was to host the Grammys.

The former first lady gave a brief, heartfelt speech about how music helped shape her into a woman and especially fueled her during the Obama White House years

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.

Her mom's hilarious reactions

Social media could not get enough and Twitter commenters fantasized endlessly about Michelle Obama joining the 2020 presidential race. But one person was not particularly impressed with her star power.

Marian barely let herself admit that she watched the Grammys and actually asked Michelle Obama if she met any real stars. Ouch.

Epic mom shade!

She's super proud though

Finally, we get to see a refreshing side of Mrs. Obama now that she is no longer the first lady and we love it. Her mom too isn't as unimpressed as she seems.

In a really sweet interview, while helping her daughter promote the bestselling memoir Becoming, she told CBS that she would like to be like Michelle Obama when she grows up. We are not crying, awww!
