7 Embarrassing On-Stage Mishaps!

We can guarantee that every celebrity dreads an on-stage mishap/incident because not only are they embarrassing, but they are often unforgettable and talked about for months to come. For example, after singer Miguel's catwalk fail knocked two fans over during the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, dozens of memes surfaced.

But he's not the only one who has dealt with an on-stage mishap! Check out who else made our list:

1. On Stage Mishaps: Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez

The culprit: A giant missed step

The crime: On October 10, during a live performance of "Slow Down," the 21-year-old singer apparently got so excited jumping up and down to the song that she didn't notice the drop down and tripped over the step. Watch it all unfold below:

2. Performance Mishaps: Miguel


The culprit: A flying leap

The crime: Miguel tried to look cool while jumping across the crowd during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards last night, but failed miserably by falling on his ass instead. Oh, did we also mentioned he knocked two fans over? The singer ended up inviting one of the injured ladies backstage. She was given an icepack and interviewed by a Billboard editor. When asked what she thought of him after the incident, she said, “I Adorn him.” What a loyal fan!

3. On Stage Mishaps: Jennifer Lopez

The culprit: A sweaty back

The crime: Jumping off of your dancer’s back with super high stilettos are all ingredients for an on-stage mishap! That’s exactly what J.Lo tried to pull off at the 2009 American Music Awards. We were all afraid, very afraid, when J.Lo hit the floor after her stunt. Luckily, she won our award for the best on-stage recovery.

4. Wardrobe Malfunctions: Christina Aguilera

The culprit: Spray tan

The crime: The “Beautiful” singer may have been belting all of the right melodies at Etta James’ funeral, but everything about her spray tan proved to be disastrous. Streaks of tanning lotion started melting off during her performance and left embarrassing streaks. Got a baby wipe for that? 


5. Wardrobe Malfunctions: Fergie


The culprit: A wet spot

The crime: Fergie mistakenly went to the bathroom on herself during a Black Eyed Peas concert in San Diego.  She told a newspaper, "I had a few drinks before going on stage, but I didn't think to go to the bathroom. We were jumping around and my bladder just started you know." Yes Fergie, unfortunately we do know.

6. On Stage Mishaps: Mariah Carey
