WHEN RAIF STOLE THE SHOW

Diana owns the show when she mounts stages, and the evidence has been obvious for decades. However, her grandson Raif proved to be the "show stealer" at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Raif charmed the star-studded audience after music star Alicia Keys passed him the microphone. The youngster mounted the stage and introduced his grandmother like an expert.

Rhonda's son rocked his black curls like a crown and donned a red velvet tuxedo jacket and black slacks. Raif was adorable as he informed Alicia Keys that he was not a "little guy."

He also went on praising his grandma for her outstanding career and her influence in the music world and among youths. The younger then ushered in the red-clad vision that was Diana.

Speaking about this feat, Raif shared in an interview that he was nervous about being on the sterling Grammy Awards stage. It is safe to say that despite this, he delivered his compere job excellently.

While she performed "Ain't No Mountain," Raif, Wentz, and two of her granddaughters danced to the beat. Raif was especially pumped as he flaunted some leg moves.

It is safe to say that Diana enjoys her hard-earned fame, and she also gives the floor to her loved ones. Her award-winning daughter, Tracee Ellis-Ross, once shared that she lived in her mom's embrace rather than her shadow.
