Singer Diana Ross will not have to stand trial after changing her earlier "not guilty" plea to drink driving.
Ross made her name in the Supremes
Her lawyers told a pre-trial hearing in Tucson, Arizona, that Ms Ross was ready to amend her plea to three charges.
Ms Ross, 59, was not present at the hearing but is expected to formally enter her plea on 9 February.
The star was arrested in December 2002 after tests indicated she was twice over the drink-drive limit, and police reported she had also fallen over.
She was stopped by police after reports of a car swerving and travelling on the wrong side of the road.
Ross had tried at an earlier hearing she had attempted to have the breath tests dismissed, but a judge refused the request.
Ross first found fame with the Supremes, signed by Motown Records, scoring hits with Where Did Our Love Go?, Stop in the Name of Love and My World Is Empty Without You before she found renewed fame as a solo artist in the 1970s.
Hits like Ain't No Mountain High Enough were followed by a 1980s revival with Chain Reaction.
But she has had a history of personal problems, leading her to check into rehabilitation centre before her arrest.
In September 1999, Ms Ross was detained for about five hours in London over an alleged assault on a security guard at Heathrow Airport, although she was released without charge.
