Diana Ross will receive a lifetime achievement honor at next month's American Music Awards and will celebrate with a performance. The awards show will air Nov. 19 on ABC from Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater.
ABC and Dick Clark Productions announced Ross’ selection for the honor. The award was given out for the first time since 2008 last year, when it was presented to Sting. Previous winners include Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Michael Jackson.
The 73-year-old Ross tells The Associated Press of the honor: "It took a lifetime to get here, I'm not going anywhere ... It's been a wonderful journey for me of joy and much appreciation."
