A contest winner’s apparent flub made for an awkward moment at the 2011 BET Awards during the presentation of the Viewers’ Choice Award, which eventually went to Chris Brown.

The award was presented by ‘106 & Park’ hosts Terrence J. and Rocsi, along with a contest winner, Tiffany Greene. Initially, Greene announced the winner of the award as Chris Brown for ‘Look at Me Now.’ She then said, “I’m sorry, Rihanna for ‘What’s My Name.'”

After all that, Drake then walked out onstage to accept the trophy, as Rihanna didn’t attend the BET Awards. “Well, this is awkward,” said Drake in his acceptance speech. “I just wanna thank Rihanna for the opportunity.”

But the drama was not over yet! At the very end of the show, host Kevin Hart brought Brown onstage and told the audience that Brown was the real winner of the Viewers’ Choice Award, after all! Yikes, that was awkward, indeed!
