Madonna appeared to land on her back with a bang after she fell down a flight of three steps mid-performance. She paused for around a minute where she couldn’t muster the strength to sing.
But the singer dusted herself off, brushed over her hair and stood up to ascend the steps once again without her cape.

Madonna ended up putting on a performance that was memorable for all the wrong reasons, when she was pulled off the stage backwards as she closed out Wednesday night’s BRIT Awards 2015.
With the final, much-anticipated performance of the night singing Living For Love, Madonna failed to untie her cape in time for her dancers to rip it away as she took to the stage at London’s 02 Arena.
The 56-year-old looked shocked – and briefly stopped singing – after she fell down a set of stairs, but picked herself back up and continued to the end.
