"The Boss" is one of her biggest hits, but Diana Ross has never bossed up at the Grammys.

With 12 nominations and zero wins, Ross is one of music's biggest stars who has yet to snag a trophy, despite fronting the Supremes, one of the world's biggest girl groups. She's also had a stellar solo career that has spanned decades, and is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

She was, however, presented with the Grammy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.

This year the Recording Academy invited Ross to perform at the Grammys because she is "One of the most influential artists and greatest entertainers of all time," who "has without a doubt made a profound impact in the world of music."

"Considered a trailblazer in entertainment, she was the leader of the most successful female group of all time and launched a timeless global solo career resulting in milestone chart successes and accolades, film soundtracks, and live concert box office records around the world," the Academy said in a press release. "Her magical journey, to date, includes charting an astounding 42 No.1 songs, 91 singles, and 59 albums, and she has amassed more than 100 million sales and streams with her historic recordings."

Ain't no mountain high enough to keep us away from you, Ms. Ross!
