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 56-year-old later said she was "fine" in a post on Instagram, telling her three million followers that her cape was "too tight".
The Queen of Pop revealed her cape was just tied too tight and she suffered whiplash after her tumble.
Celebrities took to Twitter to praise Madonna after she continued with her performance at the Brit Awards after taking a tumble.
Madonna fell off stage during her performance at the Brit Awards tonight ... and Twitter did not disappoint.
