Lionel Richie joined John Legend, Demi Lovato, Luke Bryan, Meghan Trainor and Tyrese onstage at the 58th Grammy Awards tonight as they paid tribute to Richie just a few days after the 66-year-old legend was honored at the MusiCares Person of the Year Gala.

Legend kicked things off with the Commodores' song "Easy Like Sunday Morning," which was of course written by Richie. Lovato picked things up from there with Richie's solo hit "Hello," followed by Bryan's performance of Richie's Can't Slow Down hit "Penny Lover."

The medley continued with Trainor's rendition of 1982's "You Are," followed by Tyrese Gibson's energetic version of the Commodores' classic "Brick House."

But then, the night went really crazy when Richie himself surprisingly joined the whole crew on stage for the final moments of the medley in which they all together sang "All Night Long."

Legend previously performed "Easy" at the MusiCares Gala this past Saturday when Dave Grohl made a surprise appearance that evening to sing "You Are."

Richie is no stranger to the Grammys. Can't Slow Down won Album of the Year in 1984, and he's also the recipient of three other Grammy Awards.
