Oops! She did it again! Well, it appears the flying apparatus in her Vegas show is the culprit here. Usually, when Britney Spears sings her hit “Toxic”, she flies over her adoring fans at Planet Hollywood. But during her Jan. 2 performance, the pop singer found herself unable to do much flying and had to keep singing from a platform in a tree on stage.

But Britney is a seasoned veteran and the show must go on! She belted out the pop anthem as a stagehand unhooked her from the faulty flying gear and some in attendance didn’t even notice the mishap. But, because it’s 2016 (really?!), dozens of phones captured the stagehand’s valiant rescue and you can watch it here.

This isn’t the first incident throughout Britney’s Vegas tenure. Back in April, the songstress twisted her ankle during a performance. But she tweeted soon after, “Thank you for all of the sweet wishes! Had a little scare on stage tonight with my ankle but I’m ok!”

Hey, that’s the life of a singer. Sometimes you soar over your fans, sometimes you’re stuck in trees!
