On Sunday, June 29, the 2014 BET Awards praised the best in black music, film and TV, with actors like Chiwetel Ejiofor and artists including Nicki Minaj receiving honors from the music television channel.

The night included performances by Chris Brown, Usher, and Iggy Azalea, but the final act was arguably the most anticipated: Jay Z and Beyoncé. And while the power couple did close out the show, it wasn’t exactly how everyone expected.

The power couple didn’t do a live performance at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, like BET teased throughout the evening, but showed footage of the Cincinnati, Ohio leg of their “On The Run” tour.

So what do expecting fans do when Jay Z and Beyoncé not only neglect to arrive, but send a video of themselves in their place?Tweet some pretty good jokes, apparently.
