Bruno Mars was caught nodding off during the BET Awards on Sunday night, and true to form, the internet has made the moment a meme. While Mary J. Blige was on stage singing, the camera panned to Bruno in the audience, where he appeared to be "resting his eyes" while standing at his seat. In Bruno's defense, it's no wonder that the "24K Magic" singer got a little sleepy; he opened the big show with a high-energy performance of "Perm" — plus, the show was three-and-a-half hours long, which would make it difficult for most people to stay awake through.

Once Bruno was caught on camera, the internet lit up with reactions. See the best ones below.
