Diana Ross gives emotional Grammys performance

The Supremes icon marked her 75th birthday next month with a special performance at the annual ceremony, with a fantastic rendition of "The Best Years of My Life" and 'Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand)'.

Ross, who performed some of her set while walking through the audience, was introduced onstage by her 9-year-old grandson, Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick, son of her daughter Rhonda Ross Kendrick.

"Thank you for being here to celebrate my 75th birthday", she said to large applause. 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.

"Together we have no limits". Before she began singing, she said: "When I was a little girl, I felt the joy of singing". "Learn, dream, unlock new doors".

After telling the crowd "don't be lazy" as she prompted everyone to stand, she ended the performance by exclaiming, "Happy birthday to me!"

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. 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.
