Diana Ross gives 'supreme' birthday performance at Grammys

A new film celebrating Diana Ross' life and music career will be screened across the United Kingdom on March 26 to celebrate her 75th birthday.

Shortly after, she segued into "Reach Out and Touch", embracing the crowd as she made her way towards the middle stage while also calling for unity among her peers and fans - including Jaden Smith. She recently kicked off the celebrations with a special birthday performance at the Grammy Awards.

Ross was introduced by her 9-year-old grandson, Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick.

People on Twitter nearly immediately pointed out that at the end of her performance, she said, "Happy birthday to me!"

"The film, Diana Ross: Her Life, Love, and Legacy, covers her 1983 Central Park concert, considered one of the most important events in music and entertainment history, which was hit halfway through by a storm of epic proportions".

The music icon then asked the audience to sing along with her.

"Together we have no limits". And you can lead the way, learn - dream, unlock new doors.

Diana concluded her performance by yelling, "Happy Birthday to Me!"

The Academy previously honored "Diamond Diana" with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.

Hosted by Alicia Keys, Sunday's Grammys also boasted buzzy performances from the likes of Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Chloe x Halle, Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus, Post Malone and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
