Diana Ross gives emotional Grammys performance

Diana Ross 2019 Grammys Grammy Awards Performance

Diana Ross, 74, knocked her Grammy Awards performance out of the park on February 10.

After being introduced by her adorable nine-year-old grandson, Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick, Diana burst onto the stage opening her performance with hit song "The Best Years of My Life". "I'm nearly 4ft 9".

"We express our pain, power, and progress through music whether we're creating it or just appreciating it", she said. The singer - who sang a medley of her hits in a tribute to herself, in honor of her upcoming 75th birthday - left her peers in awe. There's only success ahead.

The film - directed by the award-winning Steve Binder, executive produced by Ross and produced by music/media producer Spencer Proffer - also covers the iconic free concert she put on in New York's Central Park in 1983. "Learn, dream, unlock new doors, all is possible, all is possible with music and with you". She recently kicked off the celebrations with a special birthday performance at the Grammy Awards.

The singer - a proud mom and grandmother - was joined by her kids and grandchildren who were in the crowd to watch her "Diamond Diana" performance. (There were scheduled to be even more big acts taking the stage, but several artists - including Ariana Grande, rather publicly - pulled out from the ceremony.) As for this year's nominees, Kendrick Lamar began the night on top with eight nominations to his name.
