Grammy Crasher Charged

Facing 6 Months In Jail

For Running Onstage

He's pranked Madonna, Will Smith and Adele ... but his next victim could be his cell-mate Bubba.

Vitalii Sediuk faces jail time for crashing the Grammy Awards stage and messing with Adele's moment at the February ceremony ... TMZ has learned.

The 24-year-old Ukranian ran onstage ahead of the singer's acceptance speech and spoke into the microphone before Jennifer Lopez shooed him off. He's been charged with entering a performance area and interfering with performers ... both misdemeanors ... and faces six months in jail and a $1,000 fine for each count.

He'll be arraigned May 31.

Remember -- this is the guy who tried to kiss Will Smith on a red carpet in Moscow ... and got slapped down for it. His first trick was to hand Madonna a bouquet of hydrangeas -- knowing full well that they are the Material Girl's "most loathed" flower.

Wonder if he has any pranks involving soap on a rope.

Well, since this occurred in California, we all know that his chances of going to jail, even for one second, are slim and NONE, thanks to all the OVERTLY WEAK JUDGES in California... So why even print this "story", TMZ?

I think jail time is a little drastic. Just give him a fine to pay and move on. I might be wrong but wasn't he not even invited in the first place but still got past security?

In other words, this guy is a performer and his storming the stage is therefore protected speech.

Christ, THIS is what Los Angeles decides to take seriously? But lets Lindsay Lohan off with multiple DUIs, carjackings, theft, battery, lying to police, etc. ?

Because celebrities must be protected, even when it's a scripted gag. Screw protecting the regular public citizen, however.

They should tack on mandatory viewing of a few episodes of Jersey Shore to his jail sentence.

Are they going to charge Lil Mama for jumping on the stage with Jay Z and Alicia Keys? Or are they going to charge Kanye West for taking the mic from Taylor Swift?
