The BET Awards knows how to pay tribute to a man.
You let others cover his music, but you let the legend sing for himself to close it all out!
You may not even really know it, but you've loved Lionel Richie's music your whole life! He's been behind so many amazing songs for decades — hell, he's the John Legend from before there was a John Legend!
Let him prove it to you!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to hear Lionel sing two of his best songs, Easy Like Sunday Morning and All Night Long!
Love it, don't ya!
