A video circulating on Twitter shows the uncomfortable moments John Legend struggled to find someone to hug during the closing credits of “Saturday Night Live” on May 18.

The singer performed on the finale of season 44, as part of a tribute to Nipsey Hussle organised by musical guest DJ Khaled.

As is tradition on the show, the host, cast and musical guests gather on the stage at the end of the episode to say goodnight. The credits play as they congratulate each other for a job well done.

Don’t worry, John did get hugs

While in reality Legend did get a hug from host Paul Rudd and fellow DJ Khaled guest Big Sean early on in the credits, he did struggle to find someone to talk to for a few seconds after that, and that’s the moment captured in Twitter user @jonnysun’s video.

“Somebody hug john :(” Sun captioned the video.

Several people responded to the video on Twitter, saying they’d be more than happy to hug the “All of Me” singer.

Chrissy Teigen gave him extra hugs after, too

Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, eventually assured that all was well, telling her followers on Sunday that she “hugged him for a long time this morning.”
