Chris Brown walked away a big winner at Sunday night’s BET Awards, but it was an “oops” moment during the Viewers’ Choice presentation that had people asking, “What just happened?” Read on to find out what went down.
During Sunday night’s BET Awards, Chris Brown had a lot to be thankful for. He went into the awards show a leader in nominations and ended up taking home numerous honors including Best R&B Artist and Best Collaboration.
But it was an awkward moment towards the end of the BET Awards that really got Chris Brown fans talking.
When a fan took the stage to announce the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice award, she read Brown’s name from the computerized tablet presenters were tasked with using. Looking confused, she then announced Rihanna as the winner. Drake appeared to accept the award on Rihanna’s behalf.
Drake admitted the whole situation was weird and once back from break, host Kevin Hart revealed that it was all a misunderstanding and Chris Brown had actually won.
Brown, on a bicycle, took his award from Hart. It took us quite some time to figure out what was going on, but it turns out it really all was just a mix-up and Chris Brown was truly the Viewers’ Choice winner.
