Andra Day and John Legend perform onstage during the Spike TV's Guys Choice 2016 held at Sony Pictures Studios on June 4, 2016 in Culver City, Calif.

John Legend and Andra Day have paid their respects to Muhammad Ali with an apt performance of “The Greatest Love All,” a song that was penned for the late boxing star's 1977 biopic The Greatest.

The duet was taped on the weekend and will air on Spike’s Guys Choice Perfect Ten, a special 10th anniversary episode of Guys Choice which celebrates the "kings of cool, the men, women and heroes of the past year".

The Guys Choice special airs Thursday night at 9pm ET. Watch the trailer below:
