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

The 47-year-old actress shared a video of her son Jaden, 20, being approached by Diana Ross as she performed her 75th birthday tribute at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. But the limelight was nearly stolen from right under her nose, by her own grandson - 9-year-old Raif, the son of her eldest daughter, Rhonda Ross Kendrick, 47.

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.

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


"Did she say "little guy"?" he asked.

"Together we have no limits".

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. There's only success ahead. "And you can lead the way", the elated music legend addressed the audience during the show.

After telling the crowd "don't be lazy" as she prompted everyone to stand, she ended the performance by exclaiming, "Happy birthday to me!". Her most famous child is Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross, 46.
