When you've got an event that's already jam-packed with celebrities, it's no easy feat to find a surprise guest who's famous enough to get the crowd truly excited.
Enter Michelle Obama.
The former First Lady made an appearance during Sunday's Grammy Awards, walking on stage hand-in-hand with Jada Pinkett Smith, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and Jennifer Lopez.
As you can tell from the crowd's reaction in this clip, people were pretty pleased to see her.

"From the Motown records I wore out on the south side to the "who run the world" songs that fuelled me through this last decade — music has always helped me tell my story," Obama said.
"And 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. Is that right ladies?"
Obama later posted a group photo on Instagram, and gave a special shoutout to Alicia Keys.
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. 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!
How does Michelle Obama get anything done with so many people cheering and applauding wherever she goes?
