OOPS: Chris Brown's BET 'Viewer's Choice' Award Mistakenly Given To Ex-Girlfriend Rihanna

BET awards

On Sunday’s BET Awards, Chris Brown was one of the night’s biggest winners, taking home three awards.

One of those awards – Viewer’s Choice – however, was mistakenly given to Brown’s ex-girlfriend Rihanna. The award, which was accepted by rapper Drake on Rihanna’s behalf, was later announced to actually belong to Brown.

The reactions and confused facial expressions by the presenters were splendidly awkward in the way that only live TV could produce.
