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 that's just terrible, an unscheduled speaker. Off with his head, 'cause you know...we're all there to listen to some boring speech by people who are known for singing, not talking.

Jail for this would be absolutely ridiculous. The death penalty is the only appropriate punishment for these fat untalented bitches Adele and Lopez...

Was it dumb to get on stage, sure. Does he deserve to get arrested and jail time for it, absolutely not. If they want to prevent unauthorized people from getting on stage then they have to have security there which they have almost none in those areas, they're to busy playing grabass with the paparazzi outside to care about what's going on inside.

He said he did it because he loves Adele and he's trying to make a name for himself as a reporter. So, not crazy, but he should get a fine, but not jail. Kayne should get the same sentence as he does for hijacking her Grammy speech! His 'tell all' interview is below:
