Miss Universe 2015 host Steve Harvey screwed up to an extraordinary degree Sunday night when he mistakenly announced the wrong winner during the live broadcast Sunday.

Harvey named Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez the winner when she was in fact first runner-up. The actual winner was Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach. Harvey apparently misread the card and took responsibility for the error.

Gutierrez was already crowned and waving to the audience when a visibly uncomfortable Harvey slunk back out onto the stage.

"I have to apologize," Harvey said. "The first runner-up is Colombia."

He then announced that Miss Philippines was the actual winner, and she came up to the front of the stage looking completely confused.

Harvey issued a mea culpa, and the crown was taken off Gutierrez's head and placed on Wurtzbach's. Watch the cringe-inducing moment below:
