^ No, because that song was released before the group's name was changed from "The Supremes" to "Diana Ross and the Supremes."

Couldn't figure out why Lionel Richie wasn't coming up on Three Times a Lady. Duh. At least he gave me Endless Love. ;)

Same here. Couldn't believe that he didn't sing "Three Times a Lady" - it just sounds like a song that he would record.

Lionel Richie was the lead singer of Three Time's a Lady, it is just that he was with the Commodores when that song came out.

Divatilya, he did sing it. It was just while he was still with the Commodores. I can't imagine any voice other than his singing that song and if I'm not mistaken, he also wrote it.

It should be BoyZ II Men, with a Z. I've never liked intentional misspellings, but that one doesn't bother me for some reason. Maybe because they were my first concert. :-)

I think you should accept alternative spellings for Boyz ll Men. I am typing it with a double lower case l because I literally don't even know how else to get that 2 symbol. I tried "Boyz 2 Men, Boyz to Men, Boys to Men, Boyz 11 Men, Boyz ll Men, all different variations with z's and s's and still missed the question...Like come on, seriously?!?!
