Ok, guys don’t say we didn’t warn you but you WILL need tissues for this one.

You see singer John Legend has made an emotional performance overnight at the Billboard Music Awards which he has dedicated to his wife Chrissy Teigen. 

Legend performed a beautifully touching rendition of his song Never Break and oh boy does it tug firmly on the heartstrings.

The last few weeks have been challenging for the couple who tragically lost their third child, a son, named Jack in September.

We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough. . . We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever. . . To our Jack - I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you. . . Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you. . . We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience. But everyday can’t be full of sunshine. On this darkest of days, we will grieve, we will cry our eyes out. But we will hug and love each other harder and get through it.

His performance at the Billboard Music Awards marked his first public appearance since the tragic loss of Jack. 

Hostess Kelly Clarkson introduced Legend with the moving words, "our hearts go out to you both in this very difficult time and I'm thankful that you continue to share your light and your talent with all of us for the very special performance, possibly my favourite of the night."

Legend took centre stage in an all-white, playing a grand piano for the touching rendition, which he dedicated to his wife Chrissy. The 41-year-old held back tears throughout the performance.
