Diana Ross' Grandson And His Killer Dance Moves Steal The Show At The AMAs

This year's American Music Awards ceremony was full of surprises from start to finish, but only one performer managed to completely steal the show: Diana Ross' eight-year-old grandson.

Ross was at the show to receive a lifetime achievement award, and it was well-deserved because she's spent a literal lifetime in the music business. Starting her career 60 years ago in the girl group The Supremes, Ross branched out into a successful solo career of her own in the 1970s.

Ross has sold more than 100 million records around the world, including hits that are still beloved to this day like "Stop! In the Name of Love" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

This year was the perfect time to pay tribute to her success, because Ross' own daughter, Blackish star Tracee Ellis Ross, was hosting the awards show. But when Ross took to the stage to perform a medley of her classic songs, her own grandson stole her thunder. Now, the hilarious clip is going viral.

Ross performed a medley of her many iconic songs, like "I'm Coming Out" and "Ease on Down the Road," and she had some very cute background dancers.

Four of the singer's grandchildren joined her on stage for the performance. Ross' son Evan is married to Ashlee Simpson, and their daughter Jagger and son Bronx joined her. So did Chudney Ross' daughter Callaway Lane. But the real star of the show was eight-year-old Raif-Henok Emmanuel Kendrick.

Rhonda Ross' son seems like he inherited some dance moves from his famous grandma. He was blowing kisses to the crowd and doing the splits just moments after hopping on stage with his cousins. His funky moves had everyone in the audience and at home smiling, and he managed to do something even cuter to end the show.

As all of Ross' family, and her musical collaborators like Smokey Robinson and Berry Gordy, joined her on stage, Raif shared a heartfelt message with his grandma. "I'm so proud of you," he said shortly before the show ended, "I love you all!"

We think this kid has a bright future in show business!
