Although the live was entertaining and funny for most, many fans caught onto a moment where Luda previewed a track where he admits he "loves R.Kelly".

Despite R.Kelly currently being behind bars on child sex charges, fans felt as thought Ludaceis disregarded the seriousness of his case by "supporting him" with the lyrics.

Previewing the song titled 'Silence of the Lambs', which features Lil Wayne, Ludacris mentions Bill Cosby in the opening line.

"the world screwed if n*ggas pouring drinks like Bill Huxtable."

In the next line, Ludacris declares, "I love R. Kelly but around my daughters, I'm not comfortable."

Many fans caught onto the line and automatically gave Nelly the win, off the back of Luda supporting R. Kelly and Bill Cosby.
