Diana Ross sang “The Best Years of My Life” and “Reach Out and Touch’’ at the Feb. 10 Grammy Awards.

Diana Ross celebrated her 75th birthday with a standing ovation at the Grammy Awards.

The ageless singer, who was honored with a lifetime achievement award from the Grammys in 2012, has received 12 Grammys over her iconic career, but has never taken home a trophy.

Intro by grandson

Ross’ adorable 9-year-old grandson Raif-Henok introduced his famous grandma, who doesn’t actually turn 75 until March 26.

“She is amazing and young people like me can look up to her for her independence, confidence and her willingness to be unique. She has shown the whole world that nothing is beyond our reach,” he said.

“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my grandmommy, Diana Ross!”

Ross, stunning as always in a red satin gown, rocked the house with an all-too-quick performance of “The Best Years of My Life” and “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand).’’
