As Richie took the stage to accept the trophy, the on-screen chyron spelled his last name with a "t" -- "Ritchie" instead of "Richie."

Hopefully they got the name right when they engraved his award.

Check out Richie's phenomenal tribute performance below, which includes John Legend, Ledisi and Yolanda Adams -- and of course the man himself.
