Vitalii Sediuk didn't have "Soy Bomb" written on his chest, but he'll still find his name on the list of people who have crashed the Grammys.

Sediuk, who gained notoriety last year for kissing Will Smith at the Moscow premiere of "Men In Black 3," randomly appeared on stage when Adele won Best Pop Solo Performance at the 2013 Grammys on Sunday night.

THR posted video of Sediuk standing beside awards presenters Jennifer Lopez an Pitbull. Only Lopez seemed fazed by his appearance, scowling at Sediuk and pointing at him to get off stage. As Adele was getting ready to give her acceptance speech, Sediuk calmly exited through the back. (Watch video of the incident below.)

As THR notes, Sediuk spent the night in jail for his offense. The TV personality is apparently known for his wild celebrity pranks. He also gave Madonna hydrangeas.

This is hardly the first time someone has crashed the Grammys. As mentioned, performance artist Michael Portnoy disrupted Bob Dylan's performance at during the 1998 Grammys when he stood next to the singer with "Soy Bomb" written on his bare chest. Portnoy was hired by the Grammys as a background performer, but the stunt was not part of Dylan's act.

In 2003, Nicholas "Sixx" King wound up on the Grammys stage when Foo Fighters were accepting an award. King, an infamous awards-show crasher, also disrupted the MTV Video Music Awards in 2006.

The most famous awards-show crasher, however, is the most famous name: Kanye West. The rapper disrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs, after Swift won Best Female Video over Beyonce.
