Lionel Richie won a well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award at the
2014 BET Awards ceremony, hosted by Chris Rock, and gave an excellent performance of some of his greatest hits. There was only one snag: They spelled his name wrong.
As Richie took the stage to accept the trophy, the on-screen chyron spelled his last name with a “t” — “Ritchie” instead of “Richie.”
Hopefully they got the name right when they engraved his award.
Check out Richie’s phenomenal tribute performance below, which includes John Legend, Ledisi and Yolanda Adams — and of course the man himself.
