And with good EFFING reason!
NO ONE can KILL it the way Stevie Wonder can!
Not even Alicia Keys! And hot damn, she gave him a good run for his money!
Ch-ch-check out the recently-crowned 2012 Billboard Music Award recipient of the Icon Award, performing with the talented R&B/soul singer (above)!
And just in case you didn't think it couldn't get any more incredible, the pair bust out with an absolutely show-stopping - albeit brief - rendition of Empire State of Mind!
We are ALL so honored to celebrate your inspiring career!
We hope there are many more years of music and laughter to come!
P.S. Check out ALL OF THE PERFORMANCES from the 2012 Billboard Music Awards…AFTER THE JUMP!
