(USA TODAY) Lionel Richie was given a lifetime achievement award at Sunday's BET awards, but when his name came up on screen, there was a "t" in Richie.
Hit Fix's Chris Eggertsen pretty much captured the reaction most people had:
"Of all the on-screen captions to get right at your awards show, probably the most important one is the name of person getting the Lifetime Achievement Award. I mean, just a thought. No biggie. Just, you know, 100 million albums sold, and four Grammys, and an Oscar for Best Original Song. No. Big. Deal. Seriously, don't sweat it. Also, you're fired."
But some of Richie's acceptance speech quotes are what people are remembering more, including:
"The funny thing about this award is exactly 30 or 40 years ago when I started writing all these crazy songs, I must tell you, these are all the songs they told me would ruin my career."
"Soul is a feeling; not a color. Talent is a God-given gift; not a category. And out-of-the box is that magical place where true talent goes to live and thrive and breathe."
