"The best years of my life" and "Reach out and touch" are some of the songs she performed as her family members cheered her on from the front row.

Diana Ross at Grammy Awards 2019.

Diana Ross received quite the introduction from her 9-year-old grandson, Raif-Henok, at the 2019 Grammy Awards. "She has shown the world that nothing is beyond our reach", Raif-Henok said of his grandmother before introducing her to the crowd.

Diana capped off her iconic performance with a message, telling the audience: "Together we have no limits".




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

The star, as so many people know, came of age in Detroit, Michigan, began singing with friends as a teen, and eventually led the 1960s trio the Supremes, who had such hits as "Come See About Me" and "You Can't Hurry Love". "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. Despite being nominated 12 times, she's never won a single award, a staggering anomaly the Recording Academy attempted to resolve in 2012 when they bestowed upon her a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

"#GRAMMYS Diana Ross' grandson stole the show", one social media user wrote.
