Diana Ross to Celebrate 75th Birthday With Grammy Performance

Diana Ross to Celebrate 75th Birthday With Grammy Performance Diana Ross will celebrate her 75th birthday with a special performance at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. The show will air live February 10th at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. In a statement, the Grammys said the performance would “honor the icon and celebrate the rich history of her greatest musical accomplishments.” While Ross has been nominated for 12 Grammys over the course of her career, she has never won an award. In 2012, however, she received the Grammys’ Lifetime Achievement Award. Ross will take the Grammy’s stage just days after kicking off her new Las Vegas residency, “Diamond Diana,” at the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas.
