Diana Ross's spectacular American Music Awards performance is a family affair

Diana Ross at the amas

On Sunday night, legendary music icon Diana Ross was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the AMAs.

Ross dedicated "Best Years of My Life" "with so much love", telling the audience they are "everything to [her]". With her daughter Tracee Ellis Ross handling hosting duties, it was truly a family affair for the First Lady of Motown. And while Swift did end up appearing at the AMAs, her presence did not have anything to do with her new music-instead, it was all about Diana Ross. "Everybody, you get my mom, Miss Diana Ross", Diana's son Evan said of his mother before she took the stage to perform a medley of her greatest hits. The singer made a statement by wearing a strapless black dress that she paired with a tulle headpiece. At the close of the show, he took the mic saying, "Grandma, I love you, and I'm so proud of you".

Just hours before hitting the main stage, Diana Ross was surrounded by her loved ones on the 2017 American Music Awards red carpet (November 19).

The mother-daughter style tribute wasn't the only sweet Ross family moment last night, though.

To round out her part of the show, Ross belted the fan-favorite "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", which many in the crowd apparently found impossible not to dance along to. "I feel so humbled by this". I just want to say congratulations on your lifetime achievement award I want to say congratulations.
