E! News managed to misidentify not one but two black artists during their American Music Awards red carpet coverage this evening.

First, singer-songwriter Ne-Yo was mistaken for actor Jamie Foxx.

While Jamie Foxx was in attendance to present the award for Best Rap / Hip-Hop Album, he did not walk the red carpet.

If that weren't bad enough, E! also managed to mistake "international pop singer" and Whitenicious lightening cream spokeswoman Dencia for Nicki Minaj.

This is not the first time the two singers have been mixed up on the red carpet, Dencia was also mistaken for Nicki Minaj during the Grammys in January.
