American Music Awards: Diana Ross to Receive Lifetime Achievement Honor

Postado Outubro 19, 2017

Diana Ross, whose incredible career spans five decades, will be honored at the 2017 American Music Awards.

Ross will be receiving the American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement as announced by ABC on Wednesday.

She also hosted the show in 1986 and 1987 and was on-hand when Taylor Swift received the "Dick Clark Award for Excellence" in 2017.

Ross will be performing at the awards show this year, so to prepare, we'll be rewatching all of her mythical Central Park show from 1983. She has seven AMA wins to her name and has performed many times on the show, which is produced by Dick Clark Productions.

"I have endless memories of all the years that I have appeared on the American Music Awards", Ross said regarding the award. It was Dick Clark who said, 'Music is the soundtrack of our lives.' So true.

The American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement (formerly the American Music Award of Merit) is only given to artists who have made truly exceptional contributions to the music industry. The award was given out for the first time since 2008 a year ago, when it was presented to Sting. Additionally, Keith Urban earned three nominations, and Rihanna and Halsey earned two nominations each.
