The Motown legend and fashion trendsetter, who has received both the American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, shared her 75th birthday diamond jubilee "Diamond Diana" celebration at the 61st Grammy Awards.

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

To kick things off, Ross celebrated "The Best Years of My Life", prompting pretty much everyone in the theater to stand and celebrate with her. Also in honor of her 75th birthday, the residency concludes on February 23. "Together we have no limits", she said.

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.

However, before Diana graced the stage, she was introduced by her nine-year-old grandson, Raif, who almost stole the show with his adorable tribute to his "grand-mommy". And you can lead the way, learn - dream, unlock new doors. Diana ended her performance by saying, "Happy Birthday to me".

Ross began her solo career in the late '60s, reaching No. 1 with such hits as "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "Love Hangover".

Dressed in a flowing red gown, Ross was surrounded on stage by members of her family, including daughter Tracee Ellis Ross.
