Based on all the drama that happened beforehand, this year's Grammys were bound to have their fair share of awkward moments. Thankfully, the ceremony didn't disappoint.

From awk red carpet interviews to a man with his fly down on the stage (yes, seriously), here are the best of the worst moments from the 2019 Grammys.

Ryan Seacrest and Charlie Puth's very awkward red carpet interview.

When Charlie got to the red carpet for his interview with Ryan, he seemed either not super interested in chatting or maybe he's just a little bit monotone, but either way there were some cringey moments in the interview. People on Twitter thought it was Ryan's fault, mostly.

Ryan's interview with Bebe Rexha.

In the run-up to the Grammys, Bebe was very open about the fact that designers wouldn't dress her because of her size, so after conducting an entire interview with her about this issue, Ryan forgot to ask her who actually made her dress. He forgot! To ask! Nope.

FYI, it was Monsoori, and it was beautiful.

When Lady Gaga had to call out Ryan.

Okay! Another awkward Ryan moment. Basically, Ryan made a statement to Gaga, pointed the mic at her, and Gaga was like "Ummm... you didn't even ask me a question." It was awkward! Later on in the interview, she made this face. Bad news all around.

When Kylie and Travis walked the red carpet... late.

Kylie and Travis did show up to the Grammys, but you probably didn't realize because they walked the red carpet after the red carpet coverage was over... so like, they didn't do any interviews or anything. Looked great, though!

The entire Alicia/John Mayer presentation.

When Alicia got up to present the award to Childish Gambino, not only did a production guy accidentally photobomb the shot, but afterward, John and Alicia had a very awkward "Which way do we exit?" moment. They gave the award to the wrong person. It was a whole thing.

Alicia accidentally called someone a mongol.

When Alicia was talking about about Clarence Avant, she accidentally called him a "mongol" instead of a mogul." Awkward!! Very awkward!

They misspelled Kacey Musgraves' name.

Ugh, in one of the opening graphics the Grammys misspelled Kacey's name. They wrote it "Kasey" instead of "Kacey." Not cool, guys!

Cardi B literally danced her diamonds off.

Cardi performed her hit song "Money," and literally ask she sang about the diamonds on her neck, her diamond necklace popped off. She recovered like a pro, though. 10/10.

Shay Mooney may have had an open-fly situation.

When the lovely gentlemen of Dan + Shay got up to present the award for Best Rap Performance, one of them, Shay Mooney, seemed to have something awkward happening with his fly. He's on the right here.

Drake's speech got cut off.

Drake, who famously beefs with the Grammys on the regular, won Best Rap Performance, he started to talk about how at the end of the day, people don't really *need* awards. The Grammys promptly cut off his speech when he started to talk about it. Yikes.

Lady Gaga's entire performance.

Let's just say people weren't loving it. Or, rather, they just didn't know how to feel about it.

When Alicia was live but didn't know she was live.

So basically, the show came back from break and no one realized it. Alicia was on-stage, just doing her thing, while the camera was on her and she had no idea. Thankfully she was a total pro about it.

Alicia's closing comment.

After Kacey gave a very moving thank you speech for her Album of the Year, instead of closing with a moving comment of her own, Alicia said, "If you need something to ride home to, check my IG." Whatever that means!
