Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick has the Internet declaring he "stole the show" after he spoke on-stage to introduce his grandmother Diana Ross' performance at the 2019 Grammys.

People on Twitter nearly immediately pointed out that at the end of her performance, she said, "Happy birthday to me!" "There's only success ahead, and you can lead the way", Ross told the audience at the ceremony, after an introduction from her 9-year-old grandson. "She has shown the world that nothing is beyond our reach". Her most famous child is Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross, 46.

"Thank you for being here to celebrate my 75th birthday", she said to large applause.

Diana capped off her iconic performance with a message, telling the audience: "Together we have no limits". "Learn, dream, unlock new doors".

Ross has been nominated for 12 Grammys, but has never won except for a lifetime achievement award in 2012.

In what was perhaps one of the most inspirational and jovial performances of the night, Ross celebrated music and urged the crowd to hold their arms up in the air to help shift around the energy in the room for her.

She also earned an Oscar nomination for her role in "Lady Sings the Blues".

Diana Ross is a living legend so, naturally, she's the only person who could possibly do a tribute to herself in honor of her 75th birthday.
