The R&B singer and three-time Grammy Award winner opened the competition with Night Likes These, a single off his newest album Good Man. After the Top Three were announced, he closed the show performing his 2008 hit "Miss Independent."
Ne-Yo arrived at Bangkok, Thailand on Sunday December 16 to rehearse. And boy, did he kill it! The songs were a perfect backdrop to the history made at Impact Arena. Congrats to him, and of course, our newly crowned Miss Universe Catriona Gray!
