Diana Ross gives supreme birthday performance at Grammys

Diana Ross 2019 Grammys Grammy Awards Performance

During Sunday's 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards, Diana Ross paid tribute to herself as only an icon could, delivering a special 75th Diamond Diana Birthday Performance during the live telecast.

People on Twitter nearly immediately pointed out that at the end of her performance, she said, "Happy birthday to me!" To celebrate, the legendary Supremes singer returned to the stage at the 2019 Grammys, where she was adorably introduced by her grandson Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick.

Ross' first solo Grammy nomination was for Best Contemporary Vocal Performance-Female for the hit "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" at the 13th Grammy Awards in 1970. She walked into the audience at the Staples Center, where her fellow Motown star Smokey Robinson and Motown founder Berry Gordy looked at her with pride.

Diana capped off her iconic performance with a message, telling the audience: "Together we have no limits". There's only success ahead. "All is possible..." Diana then told the audience to put their hands in the air and "don't be lazy", reducing the crowd of music legends, artists and moguls into gushing fans. She ended her performance by declaring "Happy birthday to me!" twice.

As hard as this may be to believe, Ross has only taken home one Grammy in her decades-long career - the 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award.
