Diana also walked through the audience during her rendition of "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)" and, in an impromptu moment, sang along with Will Smith's son Jaden.

The music legend opened her performance with her hit "The Best Years of My Life". She then took her place on a circular stage among the crowd and delivered a little inspirational speech, telling the audience in the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, "Together we have no limits". Diana ended her performance by saying, "Happy Birthday to me".

The Grammys said on its Twitter feed, the "very special Grammys performance" was meant to honor Ross' "landmark career and contributions to music". 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.
