OK, we’re going to go on a rant right now.
So remember how everyone lost their shit at that moment at the Oscars 2017? Yeah, we all do… vividly. Well, it only went and happened again and this time is every bit as awkward as it was at the Oscars. We’re talking about iHeartRadio Music Awards 2017.
You’d think, after the Oscars, that people would have taken extra measures to make sure that everything went smoothly at every other award ceremony, but apparently people just don’t learn. Perhaps there’s something in the water which causes hallucinations and led someone to believe that Zayn had won Best Music Video for ‘Pillowtalk’, when in fact Fifth Harmony had actually won it for ‘Work From Home’. AWKS!
If you remember, on the night Zayn was announced as the winner of ‘Best Music Video’ and he even filmed an acceptance speech.

But later when the winners were posted on the official iHeartRadio website people noticed that Fifth Harmony had actually won the award.
Lauren Jauregui was on Twitter like a shot to thank 5H fans for winning them another award (Harmonizers are on fire atm).

Apparently Zayn won a new category called Best Solo Breakout act.
And Zayn seemed happy with that. So that’s that then.
But seriously, don’t people understand that Zayn and Fifth Harmony work so hard and to make an error in judgement like this about an important award is quite insulting to their work. Get it together people with envelopes.
Watch out future award ceremonies – the disaster curse might hit you soon as well!
