Despite heightened security at this year's Grammy Awards, (due to fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner on the loose), a "crasher" almost ruined Adele's winning moment.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vitalii Sediuk, a TV presenter on Ukraine's 1+1 channel, reportedly attended the awards ceremony without a ticket or credentials and took the stage when Adele walked up to accept the Best Pop Solo award.

As she approached the stage, Sediuk was heard saying to a visibly-confused singer, "It's such an honor to receive this award. I love you, Adele!"

Jennifer Lopez, who presented the award with Pitbull, quickly and quietly intervened, giving Sediuk a look and flicking him off with her thumb. As Adele greeted Pitbull, Sediuk exited the stage.

The man was then detained by event security and placed under arrest for trespassing. He spent the night in jail and has a court date scheduled for March.

Although the moment happened fast, Adele seemed to thank Jennifer for her save-the-day efforts, as she started her speech by saying, "You're like my good luck charm."

As for how Sediuk attended the event, he reportedly walked through the arena alongside Katy Perry and took a seat behind Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. The seat he actually took was Adam Levine's, who arrived late to the show and grabbed another place to sit.

It's unknown exactly what Sediuk was planning, but the so-called "prankster" has upset and offended celebrities before. In May 2012, Sediuk kissed Will Smith at the Moscow premiere of "Men in Black 3", leaving a jarred Smith to slap him and call him out to reporters on the red carpet. "He's lucky I didn't sucker-punch him," Smith fumed.
