Madonna has sung of "Falling Free" ... but this probably wasn't what she had in mind.
The Queen of Pop had a painful-looking moment when she fell backwards while performing her song "Living for Love" at the 2015 Brit Awards on Wednesday.
It seems that Madge's dancers may have been a bit too enthusiastic about her long black cloak, apparently pulling her backwards when it came time to take it off.
The moment was captured by numerous social media users, including in this YouTube video.
But, professional that she is, she stood up and kept performing — though as The Guardian noted, the number was "a little more muted than you might have otherwise expected."
