Music's glitziest evening is usually better known for dazzling performances than for genuine confessions on the world as it is. That being said, given the time we live in, it was rather heartening to see so many celebrities comment--however obliquely--on the things that matter to them. From an unexpectedly dope rap performed by host and Broadway baby James Corden to a surprisingly timely #NoDAPL shoutout from Michael Jackson's daughter Paris, here are the most powerful statements made by last night's celebrities at the 2017 Grammys.

Michael Jackson’s daughter proved surprisingly enlightened for her age when she walked out to introduce a performance by The Weeknd and Daft Punk. “We could use this kind of excitement at a pipeline protest guys,” she quipped, then going on to say, “#NoDAPL!” We couldn’t agree more.
