Beyonce shocks Grammy fans by missing out on her own award in awkward live TV blunder – and viewers refuse to believe her apology
BEYONCE missed out on accepting one of her Grammys during the awards ceremony, and fans don’t believe her why.
The star was nominated for nine awards at Sunday’s show, including coveted Album of the Year.
Viola Davis – who herself won a Grammy Award and received an EGOT title – took to the stage to announce the nominees in the Best R&B Song category before revealing that Beyonce had won.
The camera panned around the room and viewers were dying to get a glimpse of Beyonce, who host Trevor Noah previously claimed was in attendance.
When it finally got back on stage, fans were surprised to see two men – Terius “The Dream” Gesteelde-Diamant and Nile Rodgers – holding the Grammy Award.
Terius said something inaudible into the mic to viewers at home, before adding, “Beyonce, thank you everyone.”
Trevor suddenly stepped in to explain, assuring viewers, “Beyonce is on her way.”
He claimed she was “stuck in traffic” and would be there shortly.
The former Daily Show host also announced, “Beyonce has now clinched the award for the most Grammys of all time.”
Finally, Nile stepped up to say a few words about working with Beyonce and more.
