Not only did last night’s Grammy Awards feature the first female host in over a decade, the show was also kicked off by a group of ground shakin’ and move makin’ women.

Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, and Michelle Obama all walked out on stage to the beat of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s “The Next Episode.”

All of them sharing how music has shaped their lives while supporting last night’s host Alicia Keys.

You can watch the queens share their thoughts on music’s biggest night below.

The former first lady received a standing ovation, not even a minute into her speech! She shouted out some of the music that has moved her throughout the years from Motown to Beyonce.

She shared her appreciation and the importance of music saying, “It allows us to hear one another, to invite each other in.”

Mrs. Obama later shared a picture of her girl crew on Instagram, and talked about the importance of supporting your friends.

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!
