The cast of Broadway’s hit musical Hamilton performed at the Grammys Monday night and one Democratic presidential nominee took the opportunity to get relatable. 

Just as the performance started, Hillary Clinton tweeted out a lyric from the song “The Election of 1800” where Thomas Jefferson asks James Madison if they can, “get back to politics, please!” 

By and large, people seemed excited by the tweet. Actors Dashiell Eaves and Kevin Daniels even kept the song going, tweeting lyrics back at the former Secretary of State.

While other fans just seemed impressed that Clinton was tweeting about the musical at all:

Other attempts at topical Grammys posting did not go so smoothly. People magazine congratulated Bruno Mars on his win by Instagramming a photo of Mystikal performing with Mark Ronson on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallona misstep Questlove of The Roots screenshotted and pointed out on his own Instagram
