YouTube Treasure: Diana Ross's Legendary African Dance Number

Categories: Diana Ross

Motown legend Diana Ross delved into her roots in the 1968 TV special called TCB in which, after a few haunting bars of "Reflections," she emerged in boldly patterned prints, with bushy hair and hoop earrings, looking skinner than someone from a Sally Struthers commercial.

And she proceeded to dance her African American ass off, writhing and shimmying and getting down with her fab self in unexpected ways.

Amazing stuff, preceded by a few strains of "Reflections of the way life used to be..."

The best costume is at the 2:02 mark.

Totally Cool, Babe.

The "Afro-Vogue" number was really Taking Care of Business!

A soundtrack album, TCB – The Original Cast Soundtrack went to #1.
