(CNN) – Beauty pageants are places where grace and poise are meant to rule, but a decidedly awkward moment stole the show Sunday.

Miss Universe 2015 host Steve Harvey wrongfully declared Miss Colombia the winner when she was the first runner-up. Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, the contestant from the Philippines, had won.

A contrite Harvey was forced to fix his mistake.

“Ok folks … I have to apologize,” he told a confused crowd in Las Vegas. “Let me just take control of this. This is exactly what’s on the card. I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake. It was on the card.”

Moments before, he’d announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner, and she was crowned. Waving a Colombian flag and smiling broadly, she blew kisses at the audience.

When Harvey returned to the stage, Wurtzbach appeared at a loss of what to do.

Stunned, she walked to the front of the stage, where the coveted crown was taken off the head of Miss Colombia and put on hers.
