The duo performed "The Greatest Love of All" on Spike's Guys Choice.

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

Legend, like millions of others, was heartbroken by the death of "The Greatest," whom he described as a "true champion." Legend said in his speech at Saturday's Guys Choice Awards: "He was a freedom fighter who used his fists and his wits, his force and his faith to make our world a better and more just place." 

The Guys Choice special airs Thursday at 9 p.m. ET. Watch the trailer below.
