OneRepublic — comprised of frontman Ryan Tedder, Zach Filkins, Drew Brown, Brent Kutzle and Eddie Fisher — performed the special tribute. Linkin Park was originally scheduled to perform that morning, but the band withdrew in the aftermath of the recent death by suicide of Chester Bennington.

In the interview, Ryan Tedder spoke about the tribute came about. He said, “It’s just an honor to be here. I was lucky enough to write and produce for [Chris Cornell], and get to know him and his family over the years. He was even in one of our videos.”

Continuing, he went on to say, “The last couple of months have been very sobering for real reasons, so today we’re just thrilled to do a song with Chris’s daughter, a dedication to both of them.”

OneRepublic performed “Hallelujah” with Cornell’s daughter, Toni Cornell, in tribute to both her father and to Chester Bennington. The band also performed ‘I Lived’ as part of the tribute.

OneRepublic’s most recent album is 2016’s ‘O My My.’ It was released to critical acclaim and is their first since 2013’s ‘Native.’

They also performed their recent hit, ‘Counting Stars’ and their Grammy-nominated 2006 international smash hit ‘Apologize.’
