Steve Harvey crowned the wrong Miss Universe 2015.
In what had to be the biggest flub in live tv, host Steve Harvey announced that Miss Columbia had taken the crown. Moments later, Steve had to correct himself and say that Miss Philippines had won instead, leaving Miss Columbia devastated, and the rest of us cringing.
Ashlee Simpson lip syncs on SNL.
It's an old one, but the cringe lives on. When Ashlee Simpson was busted miming on SNL, she did an awkward jig and fled the stage, leaving her career in tatters.
Tom Cruise couchjumping.
Newly in love and trying to recover from a weird summer in which he insulted Brooke Sheilds for getting help for post-partum depression, Tom Cruise looked positively unhinged as he told Oprah how much he loved Katie Holmes. He amped up the crazy by jumping on Oprah's sofa while she – and the rest of us – looked on in horror.
Fergie pees her pants.
At a 2005 concert performance, the Black Eyed Peas' Fergie was in a rush to take the stage to sing "Let's Get It Started". At first the faux pas was dismissed as sweat, but in 2007 Fergie came clean and admitted she wet herself because there was no time to pee before the show.
John Travolta cannot pronounce Idina Menzel's name.
At the 2015 Oscars, Travolta absolutely garbled Idina Menzel's name when he attempted to introduce her. It was made even worse when he grabbed her face and tried to kiss her.
Katy Perry wiped out on stage after jumping on a giant cake.
At the 2008 Latin Music Awards show, Katy Perry inexplicably flopped onto a giant cake. She hit it and then slid with maximum awkwardness onto the stage, leaving an utter mess all over the stage and herself. When she threw some of the cake at her musicians, it looked desperate and awful.
Jerry Seinfeld really did not want to hug Kesha.
While giving an interview on the red carpet at the David Lynch Foundation's A Night Of Laughter and Song at the Kennedy Center, Kesha interrupted and asked for a hug. Jerry Seinfeld stepped back and said, "No thanks."
"Oh please?" Kesha asks, holding her arms out.
"No thanks," Seinfeld says again.
"Just a little one?"
"No thanks," Seinfeld repeats.
Finally Kesha gives up and runs away, covering her face with her hands. We were all just as embarrassed as she was at the awkward exchange.
