Oops! BET Misspells Lionel Richie’s Name During Awards Show!

Published

What’s an award show without a name being butchered or in this case, misspelled?!

On Sunday night, BET honored legendary singer, Lionel Richie with the Lifetime Achievement award. From tribute performances to kind spoken words, it was definitely a night Richie will remember forever. Sadly, the singer will also remember BET spelling his name wrong.

While the singer accepted the award, the name “Lionel Ritchie” appeared across the screen. Oooops. (Here’s a little tip, always remember Lionel is RICH, so his last name is spelled the exact same way.)

“I have a little motto that I use and I’m going to pass it on to the artists of today: Soul is a feeling, not a color,” the 65-year-old said wile accepting the award. “Talent is a God-given gift and not a category. And out of the box, out of the box is that magical place where talent—true talent—goes to live and thrive and breathe. And may you never give that up as long as you’re in this business.”

During the tribute, John Legend performed “Hello” and “Still,” Ledisi sang The Commodores’ “Brick House” and in one of the most touching performances of the night, Yolanda Adams brought the crowd to their feet with her cover of “Jesus Is Love.”

“After listening to ‘Jesus Is Love,’ I’m glad I sang the song first. Otherwise, I would not be up here. That was absolutely amazing,” Richie said. “Everyone did a great job … These are all the songs that they told me would ruin my career.”

She definitely deserves some credit. Even to get the opportunity to get on the platform. But it’s up to you how to you to be represented to the world.”
