Diana Ross truly is the queen of all divas. She spawned generations of diva wannabes like:

Paris Hilton, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Toni Braxton and every freakin' homofag
in the world.

Luv you, Ms. Ross....................

Miss Diana ought to replace Plastered Paula.

Ross, a woman with proven talent, would make a much better judge than Burnout Abdul. Technical difficulties my *ss!

Whatever    

They should get rid of Paula and replace her with Diana (who has talent) and drop Paula off at the Betty Ford Clinic.

Diana Ross couldn't save American Idiot. Good luck mentoring rejects from the Dave Clark Five.

The one and only Legend and Diva of the last fourty five/fifty years is BARBRA. Diana Ross is a homely old untalented performer. If it it wasn't for Bob Mackie dressing her in a DRAG QUEEN look of Rhinestones, Sequins, Feathers, and exagerrated wigs, nobody on the street would give her as single glance. She could never sing. Her claim to fame was strictly visual. Barbra doesn't need to wear all of that makeup, and crap, and Drag Queen gowns, because she has a God given talent. It used to be "Call Me Miss Ross", now it's "Call Me A Has Been"., and a mean & nasty one at that.
