Diana Ross wows in Curacao

There were no surprises at Diana Ross' opening night performance Friday at the Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival, and that's just how her adoring audience wanted it.

From the opening notes of "I'm Coming Out," naturally, to the close of "I Will Survive,"(of course) the Queen of Motown's pure tones hit the mark with this crowd who had come to hear familiar favorites.

Most everyone stood, or should I say, danced, throughout the concert to Diana's greatest hits, including "Stop in the Name of Love," "Love Child," and "Touch Me in the Morning," which included an especially sultry saxophone riff.

Ross was generous with the crowd and with her band mates and backup singers, giving all a chance to shine.

And the audience did indeed sing, nearly everyone seemingly knowing the words to all the songs.

Despite the overwhelming heat and humidity, even during the beach side, nighttime concert on this Caribbean Island 50 miles off the coast of Venezuela, Ross performed with her signature big hair and made five costume changes of glittery and bright evening gowns.

No surprises, no problem.
