Watch the Grammys Lionel Richie Medley Say ‘Hello’ to Everyone But Adele

By

LL Cool J kicked off the 2016 Grammys with a nod to the fact that Adele and Lionel Richie were finally in the same room. They winked, they waved, their body language read hello in every language. But when it came time to pay tribute to Richie (don't worry, he's still with us), Adele was nowhere to be found. Instead, her stand-in Demi Lovato performed "Hello" for us, along with your new favorite supergroup, John Legend, Luke Bryan, Tyrese, and a newly brunette Meghan Trainor. All night long, you'll be wondering how the Grammys missed such an easy opportunity.
