Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who began the evening sporting a Richie suit and wig, the night was a greatest-hits retrospective of the star’s career, interspersing music videos with live performances from a generation of artists that can claim Richie as an influence, including Rihanna, Demi Lovato, Ellie Goulding, Lenny Kravitz, John Legend, Luke Bryan, Tori Kelly, Little Big Town, The Band Perry, Dave Grohl and Usher.

#BallerificFashion – Rihanna's 'MusiCares' Gala Marc Jacobs Spring 2016 Gown -blogged by @avah_taylor – After debuting her #Fenty x #Puma Fall 2016 collection at #NYFW on Friday night, Feb. 12, Rihanna jetted to LA ahead of her Grammys performance. The "Work" singer was in town for the 2016 MusiCares Person of the Year gala honoring Lionel Richie. She performed a cover of Richie's "Say You, Say Me" at the event wearing Look 55 from the #MarcJacobs #Spring2016 collection, including a red, white and blue daisy embroidered gown with floral appliqué and a funky pair of pointed toe Converse-inspired sneakers. Rihanna's sheer number also boasts a deep V-neckline, 3/4 sleeves, thigh-high slit and train. A blunt jet-black bob (circa Good Girl Gone Bad), blue nails and dark lips added the final touches to her evening wear. As for RiRi's sporty glam look, is it Fab or a Fail? #rihannanavy
