Considered one of the most important events in music history, the show had to be abandoned halfway through due to heavy rain, with Ross returning the next day to finish the show.

Diana Ross took the Grammys stage for an uplifting celebration of her work as well as her upcoming 75th birthday.

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.

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

Diana Ross delivered an unforgettable performance at the Grammys on Sunday, but the Internet was also buzzing about the music icon's grandson.

Justin Bieber Is Being Treated For Depression
Bieber told Vogue he had a "legitimate problem with sex" and claimed he and Baldwin didn't sleep together until they were married. The source noted that this is something Justin "has to deal with", and is in fact seeking therapy to help him work through it.

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.

The singer quite literally got everyone going as she told the crowd "don't be lazy", encouraging everyone to get up on their feet.

Diana concluded her performance by yelling, "Happy Birthday to Me!" 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.

If we are anything like Diana Ross when we're 75, well then we know we'll have done something right.
