Madonna was violently sent to the ground by a backup dancer during her Brit Awards performance when a stage stunt went awfully wrong.
Madonna was wearing a long cape as she performed at the London awards ceremony Wednesday night … and the plan was for a backup dancer to dramatically yank the cape off her to reveal the glittering dress she was wearing.
But for that to happen, Madonna was supposed to first untie the cape strap from her neck … but she either forgot to do that or the strap got stuck. So when the backup dancer pulled the cape, Madonna was violently yanked off the steps, crashing neck first onto the stage below.
Thankfully, the 56-year old was not seriously hurt, as she stood back up and continued performing after recollecting herself.
