Before singing the song Never Break — which includes the lyrics "we will never break" — Legend told viewers: "This is for Chrissy."

Earlier this month, Teigen wrote a heart wrenching social media post, explaining that she and Legend drove "home from the hospital with no baby. This is unreal."

"John, that was so beautiful," host Kelly Clarkson said following Legend's pre-taped performance.

"All my love to you and Chrissy."
