Predictably, it was wonderful!

A new film celebrating Diana Ross' life and music career will be screened across the United Kingdom on March 26 to celebrate her 75th birthday.

But the audience on Sunday night was then treated to an nearly embarrassingly over-the-top and self-involved celebration of the singer as she sang some of her biggest hits.

Dressed in a flowing red gown, Ross was surrounded on stage by members of her family, including daughter Tracee Ellis Ross.

Meanwhile, Pinkett Smith also enjoyed the show by kicking it off with alongside host Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, former First Lady Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lopez.

"I envisioned a dream and that's what I created over those two days in Central Park", she said.

People on Twitter nearly immediately pointed out that at the end of her performance, she said, "Happy birthday to me!".

"Together we have no limits". "There's only success ahead, and you can lead the way". She had previously been nominated 12 times for hits like "Baby Love", "Stop in the Name of Love", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "Ease on Down the Road" and "Endless Love", some of which came during her time with the Supremes.

After telling the crowd "don't be lazy" as she prompted everyone to stand, she ended the performance by exclaiming, "Happy birthday to me!".

The singer - a proud mom and grandmother - was joined by her kids and grandchildren who were in the crowd to watch her "Diamond Diana" performance.

It's even more baffling when you consider Ross' prestigious past. Also there was Motown creator Berry Gordy, 89, the father of Diana's oldest child, Rhonda.
