Katy Perry delivered an epic performance of her new single Chained to the Rhythm last night at the Brit Awards.

Hell, it even featured giant dancing skeletons dressed up as Donald Trump and Theresa May.

But all of that was overshadowed by one of her backing dancers falling off-stage while dressed as a white house.


The poor dancer, part of a group wearing the same costume, slipped off the edge of the stage and plunged into the crowd during the performance at London’s O2 Arena.

Audience member Reece Jordan Doonan captured the moment on camera and shared it on Twitter with the caption: ‘OH MY GOD! Demolition on stage for Katy Perry.’

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin also gave a special tribute to George Michael last night while other performances included Robbie Williams, Ed Sheeran and Skepta, and The 1975.

David Bowie was one of the big winners on the night after winning Best British Male Solo Artist and Best British Album for Blackstar while Adele took home the Global Success Award.

Surely the dancer deserves something too? That looks like it hurt!
