As your Facebook friends have been kind enough to point out all day, longtime Family Feud host and Cleveland native Steve Harvey hosted the Miss Universe Pageant last night in Las Vegas, where he crowned the wrong woman the winner. Oops!
Harvey announced Miss Colombia as this year's winner, but soon realized that Miss Philippines was the true queen.
As seen in the video above, Miss Philippines cautiously descends to center stage, where the awkwardness climaxed as the crown was lifted off Miss Colombia’s head and placed atop Miss Philippines'. The Internet, of course, exploded immediately, calling out the classic TV mishap:

I'd like to apologize wholeheartedly to Miss Colombia & Miss Philippines for my huge mistake. I feel terrible.— Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) December 21, 2015
Secondly, I'd like to apologize to the viewers at that I disappointed as well. Again it was an honest mistake.— Steve Harvey (@IAmSteveHarvey) December 21, 2015
