The Awkward Moment at the BET Awards… [Video]

Terrence J, Tiffany Green, and Rocsi Diaz

The most talked about moment at the BET Awards wasn’t a performance. Instead it occurred when superfan Tiffany Greene presented the Viewers’ Choice Award with Terrence and Rocsi. She read off the tablet, announcing the winner as Chris Brown, but the teleprompter said Rihanna and Drake were the winners for “What’s My Name?” Drake accepted the award, saying, “Well that was awkward.”

After the embarrassing mixup, host Kevin Hart brought Chris on stage at the end of the show and announced that he was indeed the winner.

“Bawling backstage. They totally fu**ed me up,” wrote Tiffany after being bombarded by angry fans.

BET programming executive Stephen Hill admitted the error was BET’s fault. “That BET Awards Viewer’s Choice mix-up was due to human error,” he tweeted. “And I was the human that made that error. I apologize to ALL affected.”

    This ain’t even about her. YM full of shiii…
    Drake ran up there all smug “Yo girl @ my next show OVOXO…” he ain’t take shiii home… He never do unless it’s a collab… This ain’t the BET Hip-Hop show. Wayne only won b-cuz of Chris. I’m done w/ them.

    WTF???? That was so stupid. The BET Awards were actually okay last night, but c’mon now. Can we stop it with the coincidental awkwardness between these two? It was no big deal and obviously a minor mistake, but just very unecessary. LOl at Drake’s speech. He was just like uhhhh.

    This is why I don’t watch Bullshit Entertainment Television. That was wrong on all levels to both Chris, Rhianna, and especially the young lady that had to read it. Poor girl was excited about winning and presenting the award and here goes the foolishness!

Nobody needs 2 dick ride dick head when the facts are there simple & plan. He’s a WINNER… haasaaa… U mad right?

    this is part of the reason I never watch BET award shows.. BET never can have a perfect show.. You never see stuff like this happen on MTV, VH1, or the Grammys. BET was still off on the editing out of foul language for yet another year.. its ridiculous at this point

Bet did this shit and didnt even apologize to her on air for making her look like a clown. The Bet awards are the bet awards, i expect nothing more and nothing less. They move on and she is now being attacked and getting roasted everywhere smh. #BETMAJORFAIL

    @mr, MTV is ghetto as HELL! Whenever ppl have fueds MTV will find a way to get those ppl together. For example, if rihanna had beef w| Gaga, they would make Rihanna present knowing that gaga is winning. MTV have done it before. Don’t even get me into the movie awards…

    @krome, did you not watch this years mtv movie award? They couldn’t even bleep out when rob pattenson(twilight dude) said “but I fucked you” as a joke to Reese Witherspoon. BET just wanted some controversy for no reason and they know if they did that to a star they’d lose business.

    Clearly that award was suppose to belong to Rihanna cause

    1. her song was ready to play once they announced her name and
    2. Drake was already backstage ready to go on stage to pick up the award.

    If she didn’t win it then LAMN would’ve played and Drake wouldn’t be ready on the stage.

    [Reply]

    Alex Reply:

    @ImGoing2Hell, Hell yeah they dick ride the hell outta him. My friend saw on her twitter 5 minutes before they announced the winner that Rihanna was in first while Chris was in second and Rihanna was winning by like 3,000 votes. I bet they didn’t annouce R&B Female cause Rihanna won. Too bad that BET is the only award show that sees it for Chris while Rihanna has won Grammy’s, Billboard Awards, AMAs, VMAs, People Choice Awards, BRIT Awards, etc.

    [Reply]

    Huh? Reply:

    @Alex, Chris brown won 3 AMAs, 2 VMAs, 3 Billboards, nominated for 8 grammys, etc. I’m not dick riding Chris, but his list of awards is growing so his talent is not just in the BET awards

    @Huh?, I’m talking about as far as last year & this year. Everyone knows BET dick rides Chris & shades Rihanna and tonight proved it.

    @Alex,
    How they shade Rihanna? She won best female…
    Drake was backstage b-cuz he was getting ready for his performance coming up right afterwards…
    Ya’lll need 2 stop. It’s pathetic. Rihanna can give 2 phucks about that award. She out here touring, dropping #1′s & wining Grammy’s. Why be pressed about one award.

    The error was Stephen Hill. It was VIEWERS CHOICE. If you all who are bitching would have voted maybe she would have won.

    @Alex, Girl bye! Drake was backstage b/c he was getting ready to perform & BET MESSED up w| the music & teleprompter. Guess the “navy” ain’t so big after all…

    Alex Reply:

    @maya, Then why was WMN ready to play & not LAMN? I ain’t no RihannaNavy but I hate when they do shit like that. If it was a mistake then LAMN would’ve played when they said her name.

    [Reply]

    Alex Reply:

    @Alex, Oh and one more thing why did BET’s twitter, @BET, was congratulating both Rihanna and Drake? Their tweet said:
    “Congratulations to @rihanna and @drakkardnoir for winning the Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award for “What’s My Name” #BETAwards #BETAwardsWIN”

    Go on their page & that tweet was tweeted 14 hours ago.

    @Alex,
    Actually if u rewind it and play really close attention you’ll see that Chris was the one waiting backstage to pick up the award wearing the same gray hoodie and on the same bike he came out in at the end and drake came running out around him after the song started to play looking all confused. I know what u mean about the song being ready to play but Chris was actually the one ready to accept the award. Everyone rewind it and you’ll see its pretty clear.

    Looked too planned to me. Rocsi and Terrence didn’t clap when CB’s name was called. It’s like they were waiting for her to say something else. She even looked back before she said anything. Something’s bound to happen when Roczilla and Terrence is on stage.

    what i found funny was when she said “the winner is chris brown… i mean rihanna” and terrence said “the winner is drizzy drake” LMFAO. drake walked up looking half asleep and had no clue what was going on.

  43. Stre3t Danc@

    I’m watching this a couple of times now.. and all I realize is that this bish made this on purpose. She tweeted earlier that she hated Chris so she messed it all up and said Rihanna & Drake were the winners. WTH just look at her expression while announcing!

    [Reply]

    TJ Reply:

    @Stre3t Danc@, It doesn’t matter if she likes Chris or not she wouldn’t have done it on purpose because she LOVES Nicki & that would have disrespected her. Her expression was confusion because the tablet said Chris & the teleprompter said Rihanna! Go sit down somewhere!

    [Reply]

  44. xedos

    My question is how can the tablethas Chris Brown name written on it when ppl were voting during the show.BET had whats my name que up to play.the teleprompter say Rihanna the votes say rihanna check it here twitpic.com/5hhol4/full Niggas cannot get anything right
