The 2019 Grammys was a big night for Lady Gaga, who took home two awards before the show even started. However, the evening got off to a slightly awkward start thanks to a fumble during her interview with Ryan Seacrest. To be clear, it was totally benign—that doesn't make it any less funny, though.
Here's what happened: During their chat, Seacrest listed off all the impressive milestones Gaga has accomplished this year and still has to come. "Next is the Oscars, and a live performance with Bradley [Cooper] at the Oscars," he said before pointing the mic toward Gaga for her to respond. But he had never actually asked her a question, and Gaga called him out for it.
"You're like, 'Answer my question, but I'm not asking one,'" she said, laughing. Seacrest seemed to be in good spirits as well, saying, "I'm just acknowledging all the success and the talent."
He ended the interview with an attempt to make light of the flub. "And here's me not asking a question: We'll be right back," Seacrest said. Gaga just stood there with her mouth agape, looking around like she was confused. It's unclear if she was actually stunned or just playing along with Seacrest. Eventually she looked at the camera one last time and said to the audience, "We'll see you later." Live television, folks! What can I say?

Twitter can't get enough of this moment. Here are just a few reactions:
"I’m not gonna be able to wear any makeup tonight," Gaga wrote on Twitter after she won her first Grammy of the evening. "We just won our first of Grammy nominations for the night. I’m in tears with honor and gratitude. Thank you @RecordingAcad #Grammys #Grammy and my co-writers and Bradley I love you so much thank you."
