“The Talk” won Favorite Daytime TV Hosting Team at the 2016 People’s Choice Awards Wednesday night. Co-hosts Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler, Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert took the stage – but all eyes were on the mysterious man who stole the mic.
Gilbert began to speak for her co-hosts, thanking the audience and acknowledging their CBS show as the “odd balls of TV.” But before she could continue, a man in a red jacket jumped up on stage. The women were shocked, and he used that opportunity to quickly make a couple of inaudible shout outs.
“My name is [inaudible],” he said quickly. “Shout out to Kevin Gates [inaudible] album. Yeezy jumped over the jumpman.”
The Yeezy line was a reference to Kanye West’s latest song, “Facts,” which dropped on New Year’s Eve. However, he didn’t have a chance to say anymore because Sheryl Underwood pushed him away while Sharon Osbourne kicked him.
“You ain’t gonna pull no Steve Harvey up in here,” Underwood yelled after him.
It’s not clear how this mysterious man got on stage, but he appeared to be pushing something for Louisiana rapper Kevin Gates. The 29-year-old has his debut album, “Islah,” set to come out later this month, according to Hot New Hip Hop. The 15 track LP includes the singles “Really Really” and “Kno One.”
Gates is probably better known for kicking a female fan in the chest while performing in Lakeland, Florida in August. TMZ obtained footage that showed a woman reaching for Gates’ shorts. The rapper retaliated by kicking her.
