Surprising the audience with a captivating finale performance, Stevie Wonder received multiple standing ovations while singing some of his all-time classics at the taping last week of “Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life — An All-Star Grammy Salute.”

Taped last Tuesday at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, the tribute airs 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. EST tonight on CBS.

The 66-year-old Saginaw native performed “Superstition” and “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” to a sold-out audience for the two-hour special.

The all-star lineup for the salute features performances by Babyface, The Band Perry, Tony Bennett, Beyoncé, Andrea Bocelli, Gary Clark, Jr., Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, India.Arie, Lady Gaga, John Legend, Annie Lennox, Janelle Monáe, Aisha Morris, Ne-Yo, Jill Scott, Ed Sheeran, Ryan Tedder and Pharrell Williams.

Two-time Grammy Award winner LL Cool J hosted the tribute, with appearances by Jason Derulo, Jamie Foxx, Tyler Perry, Craig Robinson and Maya Rudolph.

A 25-time Grammy Award winner, Wonder is the only artist ever to receive Album Of The Year honors three out of four consecutive years, with “Innervisions” (1973), “Fulfillingness’ First Finale” (1974) and “Songs In The Key Of Life” (1976).

“We must, without question, let the world know that love is king and queen,” said Wonder, thanking fellow artists and fans from the stage before launching into a medley of his hits. “I encourage all of us as artists to write songs about love. Love is the key and you’ve given me love, and I thank you for it.”
