At her sold-out Sunday show in Dallas, Texas, the Queen of Pop strutted across the stage in stiletto boots as she belted out her classic hit, “Like A Prayer.” As she bent down to touch hands with fans in the cheering crowd, Madge fell face-forward to the ground.
But the seasoned pop performer rolled with it, seamlessly turning the tumble into a part of her routine.
After lifting her legs into the air — in a move reminiscent of her famous “Like A Virgin” moment from the VMAs — Madonna flipped onto her front and quickly clambered back to her feet, all without missing a beat.
But some YouTube commentators speculate the spill — which came just one night after she canceled a concert due to laryngitis — wasn’t a misstep. “She was pulled,” one user commented on the clip of Madonna’s all. “Look at the security in front of the stage…They look in the audience at some guy.” Another chimes in: “She ought to just touch her fans’ finger tips instead of grabbing and shaking their hands. That was bound to happen by some overzealous fan eventually.”Katy Perry repeatedly fell during a on-stage stunt performing “I Kissed A Girl” at the MTV Latin America Awards. At the 2009 American Music Awards, Jennifer Lopez plopped down on her famous rear-end — but quickly popped back up in her choreography. And in a 2010 concert, Rihanna slipped on her way down the steps but recovered like a pro.
