Lionel Richie was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2014 BET Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (June 29) in Los Angeles.

While the 65-year-old entertainer was being honored for his lifetime of work, it seems the person in charge of entering the graphics onto the screen didn’t do too much research as Lionel‘s last name was spelled wrong!

Lionel was treated to a tribute performance from John Legend, Yolanda Adams, and many other artists before hitting the stage himself to entertain the crowd.

    What a S-H-I-T show. From amateur hour at the prompter to all the stabbings and violence at the pre-parties in LA. Take this event somewhere else – people with brains and logic in LA do NOT WANT your event in our town!!
