BET AWARDS 2011: Award Mix-Up & Winner's List

With four wins to his name, none other than "Beautiful People" singer Chris Brown was the biggest winner of the night, to Team Breezy's evident delight (cue millions of fangurls singing his praises online). This includes the  Viewer's Choice Award which was presented by contest winner Tiffany Green, causing great mix-up: her tablet announced Chris Brown as the winner, but the teleprompter said Rihanna (which, in case you didn't know, is Chris' ex which he battered a while back). The poor girl announced Chris as the winner, only to correct herself and announced Rihanna and Drake as the winners for their #1 hit "What's My Name". In Rihanna's absence Drake comes out and accepts the award. At the end of the show Chris was brought out and announced as the real winner of the Award; to add to the confusion BET Awards also sent out tweets announcing both Rihanna and then Chris as winner. Watch the awkward moment below:
