Addison Rae presented an award at this year’s Billboard Music Awards but some fans noticed she made quite a mistake when on stage.

The TikToker was presenting an award for Billboard Chart Achievement, but when she went to announce the winner, she never even opened the envelope with the name inside, but announced that Harry Styles had won, leaving fans to wonder why she already knew the winner.

Speaking on her podcast, which she hosts with her mam Sheri Nicole, she finally addressed the little mishap, saying it was very pretty confusing.

“It was a little stressful because I had an outfit change, and then once I did that I went on stage and then right before, you have to read off of the thing, you know?” she explained.

“And there was like, words there, so I guess it made me question what I was already reading from the paper.

“I was just overthinking the lines when I was reading them, and then it just was like throwing me off like I was like, ‘oh gosh I don’t even know where I am right now,’ and then also there’s like no one in this big theatre, so it’s like scary-looking because there’s no one in it but you’re like talking, and you know the camera’s on you and rolling live.”

“Then on the prompter it didn’t say like, ‘open envelope’, It just said, ‘And the award goes to, dot dot dot dot, and then it says ‘announce winner’ in like parentheses so I just like announced, like I just said it and I didn’t even think twice about opening the envelope which is obviously the whole point. I just wasn’t thinking about it ’cause I was reading it ’cause I was nervous.”

If one of the biggest TikTok stars in the world makes mistakes, I think it’s an important reminder that we all do, and that we should really go easy on ourselves when we do.
