They don’t call her the boss for nothing! Ms Diana Ross owned the stage at the 2017 American Music Award’s after being honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

In a night that focused on the achievements of many artists, it was Diana Ross who stole the show and who better than to present her with the Lifetime Achievement Award than the singer’s family!

Of course, her daughter, actress Tracee Ellis Ross did a killer job hosting the award show, but it was her son Evan Ross that helped set the scene with a sentimental introduction to his mother’s achievements.
