Lionel Richie Puts it in Cement


Legendary? Yes. Legendary singer and songwriter Lionel Richie has become part of the time-honored Hollywood tradition of sticking your hands and feet in cement outside of the TCL Chinese Theatre (formerly Grauman's).

Both of his daughters Sofia and Nicole were there to support their Dad, as well at Jimmy Kimmel and Samuel L. Jackson.

Richie started his career as a member of the Commodores and went out on his own in 1982. Since then he has sold over 90 million records worldwide. He's won a Grammy....five times, and was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2016.

The ultra-famous can write and imprint whatever they want that fits in the cement square. Roy Rogers dunked his revolver and the hooves of his famous partner, Trigger. Mel Brooks wore a prosthetic sixth finger.

Richie simply wrote "Hello."

The tradition started in 1927. Since then people ranging from Shirley Temple to Sidney Poitier to Darth Vader have been immortalized.

Richie is also a judge on "American Idol," which premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
