Madonna takes a tumble during Brits performance

Madonna took a tumble as she took to the stage for her much anticipated Brit Awards performance.

The Queen of Pop strutted onto the stage in a luxurious black cape surrounded by devilish dancers.

But it was when they tried to remove it that Madonna got into trouble.

As they pulled the garment, the artist is dragged backwards before she falls off the stage with a bang.

But the singer managed to recover and carry with her performance of Living For Love.

The fall immediately sparked a frenzied reaction on social media, while celebrities also showed their support for the pop superstar.

The 56-year-old later said she was "fine" in a post on Instagram, telling her three million followers that her cape was "too tight".

Court system spokesman David Bookstaver said there were plenty of prospective jurors available and they didn't want her presence to create a distraction in the jury selection process.

He added her appearance alone "really goes to show that everyone gets called."

Her spokeswoman says only that Madonna did her service.
