And on Sunday he was stealing the hearts of people all over the world once again when he introduced his "grandmommy", Diana Ross.

At the 2019 Grammy Awards, songstress Diana Ross wished herself a 75th birthday like few can - singing away, surrounded by her family members, and to an audience that gladly sang along.

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

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 capped off her iconic performance with a message, telling the audience: "Together we have no limits". "There's only success ahead, and you can lead the way. All is possible..." Diana then told the audience to put their hands in the air and "don't be lazy", reducing the crowd of music legends, artists and moguls into gushing fans.

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

But her Grammys experience began years earlier with two nominations as one third of The Supremes, in 1964 and 1965 for "Baby Love" and "Stop in the Name of Love", respectively.

This isn't the first time that Ross has earned special recognition from the Recording Academy: In 2012, the singer was honored with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.
