2011 Bet Awards' Flub: Chris Brown Announced as Winner for Drake/Rihanna Collaboration
An award show would not be complete without a flub or two. Last night at the 2011 BET Awards, Chris Brown, Rihanna and Drake were all part of one presenter's snafu and the moment is quite awkward to watch.
Contest winner Tiffany Greene was luck enough to present the Viewer's Choice Award alongside 106 & Park hosts Terrance and Rocsi, but unfortunately there was a mix-up when it came to reading out the winner's name.
All presenters at last night's ceremony read the winners names from a high-tech tablet PC instead of an envelope.
Tiffany first announced Chris as the winner, but retracted her answer and gave the trophy Drake for his hit "What's My Name" — on which he collaborated with Rihanna.
Rihanna was not present at last night's festivities, but Drake took the stage to accept his award.
"Well, this awkward," Drake said at the beginning of his acceptance speech.
Tiffany was so embarrassed after her gaffe that she Tweeted: "Bawling backstage. They totally f---ed me up."
She soon got an apology.
Stephen Hill, BET President of Music Programming and Special, apologized for the blunder on Twitter.
"That BET Awards Viewer's Choice mix-up was due to human error. And I was the human that made that error. I apologize to ALL affected," he Tweeted.
