OMG! Why Madonna falling is the most memorable BRIT Awards moment of all time


There is only one thing that everyone is talking about today and that is the Brit Awards 2015.

Not because of Kim Kardashian‘s selfie fail with Ant and Dec, or Kanye‘s bleeeeping perfomance. Not even the fact that Russell Crowe presented Album of the Year to Ed Sheeran – yep we couldn’t understand why either!

No it was Madonna‘s big come-back performance. We waited all night for it and then the queen (mother) of pop strutted down the catwalk in her long cape singing her new song, Living for love.

She stepped up on stage and then the full horror played out – just as she was trying to untie her impressive cape she got yanked off the stage by one of her dancers.

Yes, that’s right the 56-year-old had a MASSIVE wardrobe malfunction which resulted in her cape still being tied when the dancer tried to pull it from her. Yikes!

She fell backwards down three whole steps and landed on her ass.

We all gasped, open-mouthed and then NEVER has the rewind function had more use in its life! We watched, and watched again. Did that really just happen?!

Ok, so we did have a bit of a chuckle especially as the lyrics to her song were more than a bit relevant to the situation.

‘Took me to heaven and let me fall down
Now that it’s over
I’m gonna carry on
Lifted me up, and watched me stumble
After the heartache, I’m gonna carry on
Living for love
Living for love
I’m not giving up
I’m gonna carry on
Living for love
I’m Living for love
Not gonna stop
Love’s gonna lift me up’

But the true professional that she is, Madonna got up, straightened her hair and carried on only missing one verse.

Not only that but she danced around the stage like nothing had happened.

Here at Now we couldn’t help ourselves and we’ve made a few memes to mark the moment that reminded us of some other famous falls.

But joking aside, we take our hats (and capes) off to you Madonna. A true legend!
