My, what a big afro Jimmy Kimmel has. The late night talk show personality had hosting duties at the 2016 MusiCares Person of The Year event honoring Lionel Richie on Saturday. So, like any good host, Jimmy channeled his inner Commodore by donning a Lionel Richie white and gold jumpsuit and a badass afro that was as big as whatever the hell that was in his pants.

Dressing like Lionel Richie is just one of the things that makes Kimmel, according to Richie, a weird guy. On last Thursday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the “Hello” singer revealed Kimmel knows way too much information about him. “You do not have any idea,” Richie told Jimmy Kimmel’s audience. “This guy knows more about my life. We were at a party one night, and he’s sitting there, and he starts telling me about every detail of my career. He knows about “We Are the World,” he knows the details behind “We Are the World.” He knows The Commodores, he knows every detail about The Commodores…I thought to myself — this is a weird guy.”
