The hosts of the BET Awards preshow got a bit of a surprise on Sunday night.
The live preshow, hosted by Terrence J and Cassie, was interrupted by cops during its final moments.
As Terrence J and Cassie were doing interviews, security personnel appeared onscreen in front of the camera asking those involved in the production to move.
Cassie then made a quip about her dad being a firefighter. Viewers also were confused about what was happening, leading many to ask whether the shutdown was staged.
The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to BET for comment.
Watch a clip of what went down before the awards show began in the tweet below.
