Drake, Khaled, Rick Ross and Weezy ‘I’m On One’

MrNorth: The 2011 BET Awards went off without last night at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. This year’s festivities was hosted by actor/comedian Kevin Hart, with Chris Brown leading the field with six nominations including: Video of The Year. The night’s performances definitely has some memorable moments from Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Lil’ Wayne, Drake, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, Kelly Rowland, Trey Songz, Jill Scott, Ace Hood and more.

Honorees Steve Harvey and Patti LaBelle received the prestigious Humanitarian and Lifetime Achievement Award respectively.

Things were going smooth until the People’s Choice Disaster. You’ll see what I mean after you press play below.

In what must be the most awkward moment in award show history, Tiffany Green was chosen to present the Viewer’s Choice Award. First, she said Chris Brown won. Two seconds later, she backtracked and said that actually, Rihanna ft. Drake – “What’s My Name” was the winning video. Drake came out and rightfully said, “Well, that was awkward.” Little did he know more embarrassment was yet to come!

Tiffany Tweeted:
The tablet fuckin said CHRIS BROWN….the TELEPROMPTER said Rihanna. What the FUCK?????? Goin home.

Finally, as the show closed, the truth came out that Chris Brown really did win! But the real winner is Miss Info, with the tweet of the night after that uncomfortable moment:

@MissInfo: omg, what was she reading? rihanna’s diary?
