Read on to find out how the incredible introduction happened!
Lionel Richie, 66, wasn’t going to let anyone else end his own tribute, that’s for sure! After watching some of today’s hottest young musicians sing a handful of his most well-known songs, the “All Night Long” singer ran on stage to help them close it out.

Lionel Richie, 65, is a beloved American singer-songwriter, so it was a shock to everyone when he took the stage at the BET Awards on June 29 to accept his Lifetime Achievement Awards speech and his name was spelled wrong!

Lionel Richie, who just recently came out with the worldwide top-selling album Tuskegee, spoke candidly to HollywoodLife.com about talented up- and-coming singers competing on shows like American Idol, X Factor and The Voice.
