    Highlights From the 2019 Grammy Awards

    It was a night of snubs and surprises at this year's Grammy awards - mostly from guests and nominees. Former first lady Michelle Obama helped open the show even as Ariana Grande's refusal to attend overshadowed much of the night.

    A few supporters of President Donald Trump made their fashion marks on the Grammy red carpet Sunday night.

    Singers Joy Villa and Ricky Rebel each wore looks that made political statements. Villa wore a white dress with the black outline of bricks and silver barbed wire tufts on her shoulders as well as carrying a purse with Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan.

    Trump has proposed a controversial border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

    Desi Designs Couture, the designer of Villa's dress, posted a disclaimer on Instagram saying clients' views, thoughts and opinions aren't necessarily the same as the company's.

    Rebel wore a red, white and blue jacket over white pants tucked into white boots. The jacket read "Trump" on the back and "Keep America Great" on the front.

    Villa, who has worn similarly themed outfits at other award shows over the years, took to Twitter Monday morning saying she was being slammed across social media for wearing her attention-seeking outfit.
