Charlie Puth was among the many stars and super fans who paid tribute to beloved sitcom actor Matthew Perry over the weekend after the Friends star was found dead on Saturday at age 54 at his home in Los Angeles.


During his show at the Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne, Australia on Sunday night, Puth got the audience to join him for a piano version of the Rembrandts’ iconic Friends theme song, “I’ll Be there For You.”

“I dedicate this song to another song, so if it makes you think of a person that’s who it’s dedicated to,” Puth told the crowd in fan video of the moment. Puth then began tinkling out the NBC show’s bouncy intro music as the audience joined him in singing the tune’s wistful lyrics, “So no one told you life was gonna be this way/ Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s DOA,” he began as his fans took over the “I’ll be there for you” chorus.

Puth then subtly transitioned into his 2015 smash hit single “See You Again” from the Furious 7 soundtrack, the Wiz Khalifa collab that served as a tribute to late Fast & Furious star Paul Walker; the song was both mens’ biggest hit to date, spending 12 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

A number of artists paid tribute to Perry over the weekend after the sitcom star was reportedly found dead in his hot tub; at press time no cause of death has been announced. Adele honored Perry during one of her Las Vegas residency shows this weekend, telling the crowd, “I’ll remember that character for the rest of my life,” Adele said of Perry’s Friends character Chandler Bing. “He’s probably the best comedic character of all time.”
