“Hello”? The Lionel Richie classic, not the new No. 1 torchy diva ballad from Adele.

Award-winning singer-songwriter Richie, in a black leather jacket and red handkerchief scarf, attended Britney Spears’ headliner residency “Britney: Piece of Me” on Saturday night at Axis at Planet Hollywood.

Richie met Spears backstage before the hit show and posed for a photograph. Richie has his own headlining run, “Lionel Richie: All the Hits,” at Axis beginning April 27.

Our ubiquitous Robin Leach’s Q+A with Richie was posted on Sept. 16.
