BET Spells Lionel Richie’s Name Wrong
However instead of honoring the 65-year-old entertainer, they actually gave the award to “Lionel Ritchie,” being as that’s how they spelled his name on the screen. After enjoying a tribute from John Legend and Yolanda Adams before performing his own hits, Lionel spoke in front of the 8+ million viewers with a major typo. We guess with all they had to do to get ready, they forgot to research how to spell his last name.
