On Thursday, the Recording Academy announced some of the performers at this year’s Grammy Awards.

One of them is Post Malone, who is nominated for the first time in four different categories.

Other performers include Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Janelle Monáe, Shawn Mendes, and Dan + Shay. The ceremony will be hosted by Alicia Keys.

So naturally, the Hollywood Reporter tweeted about the news. But can you tell what is off about their photo choice?

Yeah that’s not Posty; it’s Rita Ora dressed as him for Halloween.

No hate to THR! It’s confusing: Rita shows up as the first image for “Post Malone” on Getty Images. BuzzFeed News has made this mistake in the past too!

People noticed the Hollywood Reporter’s error right away and that it was hilarious.

The Hollywood Reporter used a photo of Rita Ora dressed like Post Malone for Halloween instead of a real photo of Post Malone! OMG 😂

they really put rita ora on there i-

And some complimented Rita on her amazing costume.

Fail 😂 @RitaOra Your costume must have been very convincing

This tweet already got deleted... but damn, Rita Ora’s Halloween costume was that awesome that they thought it was the actual Post Malone 🤣😂

Although some thought it was a troll.

@THR @Camila_Cabello @iamcardib @PostMalone The intern at the Hollywood reporter sending that pic of "Post Malone" to the editor cuz they good and damn well y'all don't check shit

Basically, everyone was into it.

If I was Post Malone, I’d just let Rita Ora be me in all music videos

Happy Thursday!

THR using a photo of Rita Ora in a Post Malone costume AS a photo of Post Malone is a great way to start today
