Lionel Richie is patiently waiting for Diana Ross to join him on stage

After Ms. Ross joined the stage at Beyoncé’s final LA show of her “Renaissance World Tour” to sing happy birthday to the star, Richie seemingly called her out for never doing a duet with him on stage. 

While on stage at his current tour with Earth, Wind & Fire, the Commodore singer said, “There is a song I want to do, and for 37 years, I have tried my best to get Ms. Diana Ross to show up on this stage here, tonight.” 

He continued, “For 37 years, I have tried to call Ms. Ross on the phone… Full disclosure, it was clear to me when I said she has told me no 37 years. What did you think she was gone do? Show up tonight? The woman ain’t coming. She’s over there singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Beyoncé. Piss me off.” 

Fans feel that his on-stage rant will probably help him finally get Diana Ross on the stage with him. What are your thoughts on this?
