John Legend gave a heartfelt performance at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards.

With his voice aching as he sang passionately from the piano, Legend dedicated the performance to his wife, telling viewers “this is for Chrissy” before singing Never Break, which includes the lyrics “we will never break”. The performance comes two weeks after Chrissy Teigen announced she had a miscarriage, explaining in a heart wrenching social media post that she and Legend drove “home from the hospital with no baby.”

“John, that was so beautiful,” host Kelly Clarkson said following his performance. “All my love to you and Chrissy.”

It was one of several performances that were pre-taped for Wednesday’s show. Other musicians attended and performed at the empty Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles during the three-hour event, which aired on NBC.

This year’s Billboard Awards were originally supposed to take place in April but were postponed because of the pandemic.
