Michelle shocked viewers at home when she awarded him the Best International Male award.

Host Jack Whitehall told viewers that they had "gone one better" and had got the First Lady to hand out an award over video.

Michelle said: "I am here because I am so so excited for this years winner. He has made himself into one of the biggest name sin music.

"His songs have been streamed billions of times around the world and thankfully he's found his way through that maze through the superbowl."

Michelle praised the Weeknd and congratulated him and thanked him for donating million to causes like COVID relief, and Black Lives Matters.

She continued: "He's made his impact not just on stage and in our earbuds, he's also donated millions to causes like Covid relief and Black Lives Matter.

"He’s helped feed those displaced by violence in places like Ethiopia, he’s funded assistance to survivors of the explosion in Lebanon.

"So let’s just say in a tough year, he’s provided a light that’s pretty blinding and given us all a reason to dance.”

A number of baffled viewers were thrilled to see Michelle on their screens.

One stunned viewer wrote: "OMG Michelle Obama presenting an award. Are we at the right party?"

Another shared: "Jackie Weaver and Michelle Obama on the same bill #Brits"

A third posted: "And now Michelle Obama is presenting an award?!! Love it."

One baffled viewer said: "Michelle Obama has made my night. Just when you thought tonight couldn't get any better. They pull out Michelle Obama."

The Brit Awards 2021 are the first event to welcome back a live crowd, as part of a research program used by the Government to examine the risks of Covid-19 transmission at events.

Comedian Jack Whitehall returned after hosting successfully for the past three years.

Coldplay headlined the ceremony, with other performers including Dua Lipa, Rag’n’Bone Man, P!nk, Griff, Olivia Rodrigo and Arlo Parks.

Harry Styles, Celeste, Dua Lipa and Joel Corry are just a few of the main nominees for this year's award ceremony.
