The 2019 Grammy Awards were a night to remember. If you didn't get to watch (or if you just want to relive it), here are five of the biggest moments from the night.

Michelle Obama showed up

If you've read the former first lady's insanely popular autobiography, "Becoming," you'll know Michelle Obama is a huge music fan, thanks in part to her grandfather, who shared records with her when she was young. So it may not be too surprising that she took the stage at the Grammys alongside Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga and host Alicia Keys.

She gave a short speech about the power of music "to hear one another, to invite each other in." 

A big part of friendship is showing up for your girls—that’s why I was thrilled to be there for the one and only@aliciakeys at the#GRAMMYs. She is one of the most genuine and thoughtful people I know—there’s no one better to help us all celebrate the unifying power of music!

Alicia Keys played ALL the songs (and two pianos)

Alicia Keys hosted the Grammys Sunday night, but that didn't mean the Grammy-winning artist didn't get to perform, too.

She sat between two grand pianos and played them both at the same time, paying tribute to songs "that live inside of you because it was done so well you wish you wrote it," like Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" or Drake's "In My Feelings," ending with her own song, "Empire State of Mind."

Drake actually accepted his award in person, but his speech was cut off

Drake rarely makes appearances at awards shows, but he made a surprise appearance to accept the Best Rap Song award for his song "God's Plan." He used his time on stage to begin to tell the crowd, specifically kids watching at home, that music is an "opinion-based sport" and awards don't matter, but the show cut to commercial mid-sentence.

Grammy producers told Variety it wasn't intentional: they thought he was done speaking. 

Dolly Parton and Diana Ross won the night

It's not the Grammys without a tribute or two to music legends, and Sunday night's awards paid tribute to two of the biggest and best: Dolly Parton and Diana Ross.

Country artist Kacey Musgraves kicked off the Parton tribute alongside Katy Perry, singing "Here You Come Again," with Parton joining in. Miley Cyrus joined Parton (her godmother) for "Jolene," then a cover of Neil Young's "After The Gold Rush" alongside Parton and Maren Morris. Little Big Town took the stage with Parton for "Red Shoes," then everyone joined in for a rendition of "9 to 5" which got the whole crowd on their feet -- including a viral moment in which K-pop group BTS was caught absolutely jamming out to the country legend.

Later in the night, Diana Ross took the stage in a billowing red ball gown to pay tribute to -- who else? -- herself. Introduced by her 9-year-old grandson, Ross performed a medley of her songs from throughout the years. The celebration was meant for the iconic singer's 75th birthday this year (though her birthday isn't until March) and earned herself a spot on everyone's 2019 mood board by ending the performance proclaiming, "Happy birthday to me!" to the crowd.

The night's biggest awards and performances belonged to women and artists of color

Perhaps in an attempt to atone for some of the Recording Academy's past sins -- namely its pattern of overlooking both female artists and hip-hop artists in major categories -- Musgraves took home four Grammys, including Album of the Year and Best Country Album, and Childish Gambino took home Song of the Year and Record of the Year, a first for a rapper.

Cardi B was the first solo woman to take home a Grammy for Best Rap Album, and Brandi Carlile and Lady Gaga each took home three Grammys.

The performances were also dominated by women, too:  Carlile, Janelle Monae, Cardi B, St. Vincent and Dua Lipa, H.E.R., Musgraves, Lady Gaga, Camilla Cabello, Chloe X Halle, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez and of course, the aforementioned Dolly Parton and Diana Ross tributes.
