Clinton joined a host of music industry figures, including Cardi B and Snoop Dogg, during a segment in which they pretended to be auditioning to read excerpts from Michael Wolff's controversial tell-all about the Trump administration.

During her appearance, which drew applause from the audience, Clinton read an excerpt about the president's habit of eating McDonald's. 

"He had a longtime fear about being poisoned — one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald's. No one knew he was coming and the food was safely pre-made," read Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.

Following her reading, Grammys host James Corden entered the scene, exclaiming, "That's it — that's the one!"

“You think so?” Clinton said. “The Grammy’s in the bag?”
