She said she would carry on, and did she ever.

At Wednesday’s BRIT Awards in London (the UK’s equivalent of the Grammys), Madonna’s headline performance of “Living For Love” got off to a bumpy start when the New Yorker fell off the stage.

Madonna’s huge cape appeared to get snagged by one of her dancers, pulling the 56-year-old backwards and causing her to tumble down a mini flight of stairs. The sound of her hitting the ground was audible and sent gasps around the 02 Arena, which holds 20,000.

Despite being clearly rattled, she continued with her matador-themed performance and the crowd screamed their appreciation for the singer’s stoical show.

Take a bow, Madge. You’ve earned this one.
