Soul vocalist Diana Ross told the large numbers assembled at the Pyramid Stage to “feel the force of adoration” as she rolled out a large number of hits at the Glastonbury Festival on Sunday night.
She started off her set with 1980 exemplary I’m Coming Out drawing joyful praise during her Sunday lunch time legends space on the last day of Glastonbury wearing a shimmering dress with a matching white cape and headpiece troupe.
The spirit vocalist offered the group a choice of works of art including Baby Love, You Can’t Hurry Love, Stop! In The Name Of Love and at the finish of Chain Reaction pink confetti was sent off from the stage.
A slideshow of photos were shown to the crowd from Ross’s long career in the build-up to her appearance on stage – which was met with loud cheers from the audience.
Defying earlier ominous forecasts, the sun shone down on the packed crown, armed with flags and vibrant festival wear, as she reeled off songs from her new album titled Thank You.
She said: ‘During these last three years, I’m going to call it a vacation, it gave me a chance to really think about the important things in life because I couldn’t go on the road and the album is called Thank You.
‘I want you to know how grateful I am for this life, I am filled with thankfulness for each of you, I love the idea of singing in the daytime … I can look into your eyes.’
Later she added:
‘Feel the power of love.’
After announcing she had recently turned 78, Ross urged the crowd to dance with her as a line of security staff performed a routine to Upside Down before the camera panned to show fans holding Diana Ross masks.
Lorde told fans it was ‘good to be back’ as she kicked off her set on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival on Sunday.
The singer, 25, looked sensational as she debuted her gorgeous new blonde hair, while slipping her toned physique into a tight mauve leotard.
She also shouted, ‘F**k the Supreme Court,’ over its ruling on Roe v Wade, which formerly protected a pregnant woman’s freedom to have an abortion.
The Billboard Award winner’s first song of the evening was The Path from her latest album Solar Power.
She told the Glastonbury crowd it was ‘so good to be back’ at the festival ahead of playing her track Homemade Dynamite.
Lorde then surprised the masses by bringing out Clairo and Arlo Parks , who united to perform her song Stoned at the Nail Salon.
The New Zealand native asked the crowd if they should all dance for their ‘angsty 15-year-old selves’ as she introduced her track Ribs.
She said: ‘Glastonbury, I wrote this song when I was 15-years-old, which means that some of you might have been listening to it for almost 10 years.
‘Should we dance for our angsty 15-year-old selves tonight?’
which caused the crowd to erupt into cheers.
‘Wanna hear a secret girls? Your bodies were destined to be controlled and objectified since before you were born.
‘That horror is your birthright. But here’s another secret. You possess strength. That wisdom is also your birthright.
‘I ask you today to make exercising that wisdom your life’s work because everything depends on it. F*** the Supreme Court.’
Earlier on Sunday, George Ezra confirmed he was the secret guest on the John Peel stage on Sunday, three days after pulling out of Tinderbox Festival in Denmark due to a
“nasty bout of laryngitis”.
Ezra got his set off to an electrifying start, walking onto the John Peel Stage to Anyone For You before launching into a rendition of Cassy O’ with hits Hold My Girl, Paradise and Blame It On Me also featuring.
The Hertfordshire singer-songwriter departed the stage to rapturous applause following a rendition of Shotgun.
Charli XCX appeared to be having the time of her life while performing at Glastonbury and left little to the imagination in a tight black bra and a matching leather Roman mini skirt, which revealed her toned rear.
Putting on a very animated display, she continued her medieval look with lace-up knee-high boots and a pair of bicep tassel accessories.
The Boom Clap songstress wore her raven tresses in a chic ponytail featuring purple highlights, ensuring to whip it back and forth while busting her best moves.
Kendrick Lamar opened his first ever Glastonbury set with a group of male dancers all dressed in white shirts and black trousers with a red robe on their arms as female dancers wearing red flowing dresses danced through them.
As they stilled, Lamar – who closed this year’s event – stepped up to the mic with what appeared to be a crown of thorns on his head to perform his opening song of United In Grief.
He treated the packed crowd of adoring fans to a selection of his hit song including Money Trees, Backseat Freestyle, B**** Don’t Kill My Vibe, m.A.A.d city and King Kunta.
As they audience chanted the opening lyrics to his track Swimming Pools (Drank) as he watched on he asked them
‘Glastonbury are you ready?’
The female dancers later returned to the stage to flow elegantly around Lamar as he rapped Count Me Out and red light beamed down upon them.
Lamar told the crowd he liked “where the energy is at right now” as they continued to chant and dance to his headline set.
The US rapper added that he wanted to “check the temperature” of the audience by getting each section to scream back at him, causing rapturous applause.
After amplifying the energy he performed his track i followed by Alright.
It was announced in 2020 that the Grammy-winning singer would headline Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary but the festival has faced two years of delays due to the pandemic.

On Saturday evening, Sir Paul McCartney wowed the crowds with a show-stopping set list which included surprise guest appearances from Bruce Springsteen and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.
As he took to the Pyramid Stage, the former Beatle became the festival’s oldest solo headliner, a week after he celebrated his 80th birthday.
During his more than two-hour set, he played a range of classic songs including Hey Jude, Blackbird, Live And Let Die, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da and Get Back.
The electrifying show was further amplified as he introduced Grohl to the stage to sing I Saw Her Standing There and Band On The Run, marking Grohl’s first public performance since the death of his Foo Fighters bandmate, drummer Taylor Hawkins.
Springsteen took to the stage to play Glory Days and I Wanna Be Your Man alongside Sir Paul.

Starstruck: ‘We have another surprise for you from the east coast of America, New Jersey, it’s Mr Bruce Springsteen’
As part of the encore, through special technology which could isolate John Lennon’s vocals from old recordings, Sir Paul was able to duet The Beatles’ track I’ve Got A Feeling alongside his former bandmate on the Pyramid Stage.
However fans have been left fuming as they are still unable to access Paul McCartney’s headline performance from the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury last night on BBC iPlayer – almost a full 24 hours after his gig.
McCartney performed a packed show beginning at around 10:30pm on Saturday evening to thousands of eager fans at the festival which concludes tonight.
But those unable to make it to the show are asking why his set is not yet available to watch on the BBC’s catch-up site, despite the majority of other sets already being available.
Would-be viewers expressed disappointment online after trying to watch the gig with family and friends and not finding it.
Earlier on Saturday, the Pyramid Stage hosted a speech by Greta Thunberg where she called on society to take on its “historic responsibility to set things right” with the global climate crisis.
Her speech was followed by a set by pop rock band Haim, with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds taking to the Pyramid Stage after them.
Billie Eilish headlined the Pyramid Stage on Friday night, becoming Glastonbury’s youngest ever solo headliner.
