LONDON (AP) — Madonna has given music fans a shock when she tumbled down several stairs at the Brit Awards.
The 56-year-old queen of pop was closing Wednesday’s ceremony in London with a performance of her song “Living For Love.”
Madonna entered with a troupe of male dancers, and appeared to fumble with a large cloak she was wearing. The garment seemed to be pulled backward, and Madonna fell down three steps while her dancers looked on, seemingly in shock.
The song includes a lyric about stumbling, then continues “I’m gonna carry on” — and Madonna did, continuing the matador-themed routine.
Kanye West and Taylor Swift also performed at the Brit Awards, the U.K. equivalent of the Grammys.
