Grammys 2019: Woman faints onstage as Cardi B walks by: 'People were freaking out'

There was a scary moment that happened inside the Staples Center during Sunday night's 2019 Grammy Awards but wasn't shown on television.

As Cardi B was escorted onto the stage by husband Offset to accept her Grammy for Best Rap Album, a woman -- likely a seat filler -- passed out on the side of the stage, just out of view of the cameras.

Footage of the incident was shared on Twitter.

"Unknown woman falls on stage at the #GRAMMYs⁠ after @iamcardib wins #BestRapAlbum!" someone inside the arena wrote. "You see #CardiB walking by concerned & production trying to get her off stage before end of commercial break."

Another source told Entertainment Tonight that everyone around was concerned and attempting to alleviate the situation before it could be seen on TV.

"People were freaking out,” an insider observed. "They were trying to get her up quickly [before the show returned from commercial break]."

It's unclear what happened, exactly, though it appears as though the woman had fainted.
