Diana Ross spreads the love at Glastonbury

Revellers dance as Diana Ross headlines the Pyramid stage at Worthy Farm in Somerset during the Glastonbury Festival

GLASTONBURY, England (Reuters) - It was a sun-drenched love affair between Diana Ross and revellers at Glastonbury on Sunday when the U.S. singer played in the "legends" slot on the final day of the festival.

Wearing a sparkling gown, feather head-dress and earrings that could double as small chandeliers, Ross started the party with "I'm Coming Out".

The singer and actress, who has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, achieved fame with 1960's Motown group the Supremes before she launched her solo career in 1970.

Supremes' songs "Baby Love", "Stop! In the Name of Love" and "You Can't Hurry Love" delighted the crowd. "So many songs about love," she reflected.

Ross, who is 78, was due to play Glastonbury in 2020 before the pandemic caused the festival to be cancelled for two years.

"I stayed strong and I was determined to get here with you," she said. "I'm so excited."

Her set included "Thank You", the title track of the album recorded in the pandemic and released in November 2021. Some television viewers complained online that the soul legend missed notes on some songs.

That did nothing to dampen the mood, and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "I Will Survive" left the crowds at the Pyramid stage on a high.

Ross followed in the footsteps of Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and Kylie Minogue in the Sunday afternoon slot, one of the biggest draws at Worthy Farm.

U.S. rapper Kendrick Lamar will headline on Sunday, bringing the festival held in south-west England to an end.
