Hot Shots: Rihanna, Usher, & More Honor Lionel Richie At Musicares Event

Published: Sunday 14th Feb 2016 by Rashad

While #Grammyweekend is taking the less conventional approach in 2016 (moving the ceremony to Monday), that hasn’t stopped the usual goings-ons from preceding it.  One such annually anticipated event is the celebration of MusiCares “Person of the Year,” with this year’s honor going to the legendary Lionel Richie.

In an homage that garnered contribution from the likes of some of today’s brightest Grammy winners John Legend, Usher, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, and more, the February 13th event saw representation from every genre Richie’s rich discography has touched (R&B, soul, pop, country, and more).

Tuck in below to see some snaps of the night’s highlights:

      Rihanna stays performing her own gigs lol.

      “Work” at top 5 on BB100 and ANTI @ #1 on BB200.

      Who will buy Beyonce six GRAMMYs this year now that Matthew has been kicked off the Grammy Committee..

        Lmao yawwn! Anti is about to be kicked off BBHot200. That 1 week was nice hahahah! Work is #7 not #5 kii you stay lying! Matthew was only apart of that 30 member newly formed Texas branch Grammy committee for B’Day era which Bey only won 1 grammy and Damn didn’t know the Knowles had so much power in their names to influence 25,000 grammy voters hahaha! Anymore tired and evaporated tea for me to clock! ????

    Congrats Lionel – such a legendary artist! Usher looks a good 28 in that photo and he’s almost a decade older than that 🙂 Riri, girl these fashions you’ve been giving me lately are not the business honey! I don’t think this event was so formal when it came to its dress-code but those sneakers paired with the dress took me out.
