Diana Ross steals the stage at the Grammys

A new film celebrating Diana Ross' life and music career will be screened across the United Kingdom on March 26 to celebrate her 75th birthday.

Ross has a fractured history with the Grammys.

"Did she say little guy?" the little boy said about host Alicia Keys, who had announced him. Her most famous child is Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross, 46.

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.

Before launching into her hit 1970 single "Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand)", Ross told everyone she was celebrating her 75th birthday.

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.

"Together we have no limits. And you can lead the way", the elated music legend addressed the audience during the show.

The Academy previously honored "Diamond Diana" with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012. She had previously been nominated 12 times for hits like "Baby Love", "Stop in the Name of Love", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "Ease on Down the Road" and "Endless Love", some of which came during her time with the Supremes.

Diana Ross took to the stage at the Grammys to mark her 75th birthday.
