Diana Ross says she knew getting a Kennedy Center Honor was a big deal when her son told her it was like winning the Nobel Prize or being knighted.
During the tribute to Ross, Ciara sang "I'm Coming Out," Yolanda Adams sang "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)"
and Vanessa Williams sang "Touch Me in the Morning."

Movado Group was present to celebrate the country’s artistic royalty at the Kennedy Center Honors. The five artistic luminaries honored this year were pianist Leon Fleisher, actor and writer Steve Martin, singer Diana Ross, film director Martin Scorsese, and songwriter Brian Wilson.
Movado, the official watch of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, helped the center celebrate 30 years of the Kennedy Center Honors and while celebrating its own 60th Anniversary of its Museum dial. Paying tribute to both milestones, Efraim Grinberg, Movado Group president and chief executive officer, joined Kennedy Center chairman Stephen A. Schwarzman and president of the Kennedy Center Michael Kaiser, at a small reception prior to the Chairman’s Honorees Luncheon held on Saturday, Dec. 1.
During the reception, Grinberg presented each honoree with a limited edition 60th Anniversary Movado Museum Watch.“The powerful connection between Movado and the arts has become the foundation of the Movado brand experience. That is why it is a great privilege to be associated with The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and such an extraordinary group of the world’s most talented artists,” Grinberg said.
SUPREME DIVA: The word "diva" gets thrown around too loosely these days, applied to any female performer with an attitude.
But being a diva isn't about hissy fits or bad fashion.
Derived from the Italian word, divina (divine), the term was originally used to describe a woman of rare and outstanding talent.
Based on that definition, Diana Ross is the "supreme" diva of our time.
