People couldn't believe what they were seeing!
They'd just been up on stage to collect the Best British Group award for the first time in their careers, but The 1975 were quickly back up to put on a stunning performance of their track 'The Sound'.
However, people thought that the band's performance had been hacked after rude comments started popping up on the screen!
The band were putting in a solid performance alongside a gospel choir, but they were harshly ripped into throughout by a bright pink screen.
And it sparked people into a frenzy thinking that the entire awards show had been hacked!

#BRITs2017 has the brits been hacked?? 1975— kelly (@k_tozer77) February 22, 2017
Luckily there were a few people on hand to set everyone straight...
The clips were actually criticisms that the band have received from critics previously and were part of their music video for the track they performed, so they knew about it all along and it was planned.
Phew! Panic over.
