It's hard to imagine DJ Khaled ever getting stage fright, but while hosting the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards, the 42-year-old producer and father to Asahd appeared completely caught off guard when it came time to announce Jenna Dewan Tatum's name to present an award.

"Check this out. Everybody in the VIP โ€” save your snack. It's about to get serious," he announced, in a clip captured by E! News. "Our next presenters are lions. Where my girl at? Where my girl at? Hold on. Come over here. I can't say his name right."

DJ Khaled grabbed the closest member of the stage crew, who gracefully threw him a buoy and said, "OK, here's Jenna Dewan Tatum," before the host snagged his mic back. "Thank you, thank you, thank you, make some noise. And make some noise for Eve!"

Awkward! Fans were totally split about whether this was scripted or not, but based on this guy's look of shock, it's hard to imagine he knew it was coming. Someone get him an award for best staff member in a supporting role. Serious question: did DJ Khaled not see Step Up?! Check out some hilarious reactions below, and see why DJ Khaled might not be "the best" under pressure.
