J.Lo Saves Adele from Grammy Prankster
By Benjamin Lindsay
You'd think last year's six-win Grammys sweep would be enough for the songstress, but Adele has been making headlines once again after this year's ceremony. Sure, she won another Grammy, but Adele is getting the most buzz for giving Chris Brown a long overdue scolding after he refused to give Frank Ocean a standing ovation.
Another Adele moment is making the rounds, but this time it's Jennifer Lopez who jumps in to save the day. As Adele was accepting the Grammy for best pop solo performance, Vitalii Sediuk—a Ukranian TV personality best known for getting slapped by Will Smith on the red carpet—jumps to the podium with his camera crew for the interception.
"It's such an honor to receive this award," Seduik says. "I love you, Adele."
But that's all he can get out before J.Lo steps in front of him, gives him a good glare, and jerks her thumb upstage, shooing him away. Adele hardly seemed to notice, and major embarrassment was (mostly) avoided.
There's been speculation as to how Seduik made his way into Staples Center, but he told The Hollywood Reporter earlier today that he was able to sneak in with friends who had tickets. Never asked for a ticket himself, he was given a pat-down, strolled in behind Katy Perry, and grabbed Adam Levine's seat, who was stuck sitting on the floor. Shortly after leaving the podium, he was detained by security and spent the night in jail for trespassing.
