Charlie Wilson is being honored for his more than 40-year career.  During Sunday's BET Awards, Charlie was awarded with the Cadillac Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Prior to receiving the award, Wilson was honored by performers India.Arie, Jamie Foxx and Stevie Wonder.  Then Justin Timberlake convinced the R&B legend to take the stage himself. 

After performing his song "You Are," Wilson was joined by Snoop Lion, Pharrell Williams, and Justin Timberlake.  The four churned out hits such as "Beautiful," "Charlie, Last Name Wilson," "Outstanding" and "You Dropped the Bomb on Me."  The epic performance caused "Charlie Wilson" to be a trending topic on Twitter. 

Earlier this year, Charlie Wilson released his sixth solo album Love, Charlie
