Sometimes you just need to finish the year with a bang – or in this case, a monumental flub.

In what could quite possibly be the worst mistake in television for 2015, Miss Universe host Steve Harvey announced Miss Colombia as the winner of the pageant, when it was actually Miss Philippines.

Here is actual footage of the de-crowning of Miss Colombia:

To make matters worse, in his subsequent apology tweet, Harvey misspelled both “Colombia” and “Philippines.” Oy vey.

He deleted that tweet and put up this one after:

Of course, former Miss Universe owner and current Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump weighed in on the monumental mistake, saying it wouldn’t have happened had he not sold the pageant six months ago.

People on Twitter are weighing in, with some users suggesting it was all a publicity stunt to get people talking about Miss Universe.

In the Miss Universe Snapchat story, Steve Harvey claims it was the TelePrompTer that caused him to read out the wrong name.

Miss Alabama conquers.
