Organisers Embarrassment at Spelling Lionel Richie’s Name Wrong

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Lionel Richie collects a lifetime achievement award but has no idea the organisers have spelt his name wrong.

The legendary singer took to the podium to graciously accept the humbling honour at the BET Awards unaware of the typo beneath him.

It was immediately spotted by viewers and within minutes the hashtag #LionelRitchie was trending worldwide on Twitter.

Obviously the blooper by BET wasn’t anywhere close to being as awkward as when John Travolta fluffed his lines at the Oscars.

Still, at least they got his first name right.
