When Grammy's crasher and celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk tried to join presenters Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull on stage with Adele, Lopez could tell something was up.
Sediuk, a Ukrainian TV presenter, managed to weasel his way into the ceremony despite not having a ticket, a source told The Hollywood Reporter. He got through security and walked down the red carpet unnoticed, even stopping to interview some celebrities.
According to the NY Daily News, Sediuk told THR, “My channel didn’t get credentialed, so I went with friends who had tickets. They didn’t check how many we had, so I was let in. First I went to the media line and interviewed quite a few celebrities, like Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Kidman. ...Then I just followed one girl in a green dress through the [Staples Center] gates. They checked my pockets but never asked to see a ticket."
Apparently a big fan of Adele, Sediuk wanted to congratulate her on stage. He can be heard saying, "It's such an honor to receive this award. I love you, Adele." J.Lo took notice and gave him a stern look before waving him off the stage.
Following this stunt, Sediuk was detained by security and spent the night in jail.
