On Sunday night, former first lady Michelle Obama won her second Grammy Award for best audiobook, narration and storytelling for The Light We Carry: Overcoming In Uncertain Times.

She was not in attendance when the award was announced during the pre-show ceremony.

Michelle Obama now matches her husband, Barack Obama, who has also won two Grammys. All of the Obamas' Grammys have been for audiobook narrations.

It was a crazy night, with singer Lizzo showing up to present an award despite a harassment and discrimination suit pending against her and rapper Killer Mike's arrest after the show for allegedly knocking over a security guard.

Killer Mike said that the altercation happened when an overzealous security guard tried to prevent his party from going through the wrong door.

He expects to be cleared of all wrongdoing in the matter.
