The Material Girl singer continued her Celebration Tour in Seattle on Sunday night but left herself in a muddle on stage

Madonna has been praised by her fans for her professionalism on stage during her Celebration tour after she suffered an awkward stumble.

Celebration is the ongoing 12th concert tour by the American singer who is visiting cities in North American and Europe – putting on a staggering 80 shows.

On Sunday night, the pop icon took a stumble on stage whilst performing her 1986 hit Open Your Heart, with one of her dancers losing their footing.

After singing a few lines of the song, Madonna sat herself down on a chair as part of the choreography for the track which was inspired by the original music video.

Walking behind her, one of the dancers tilted the chair and began to drag her across the stage but after only just a few steps in, they lost their balance and fell to the floor along with Madonna.

As she toppled out of the chair, she rolled onto her stomach and began laughing at the audience and tried to move on with the song.

The commotion of the incident became too much for the singer and she joked with the audience: "S**t, I forgot the words!"

However, she quickly regained her composure and finished the song before the dancer dragged the dreaded prop away.

Fans of the show were quick to share their reactions to the moment on their social media, with one clip being shared on X.

Responding to the video, one user commented: "She’s the Queen for a reason," before another added: "That laugh was everything!"


Madonna laughed the moment off and carried on singing


"I love how she played it off – just rolled over and kept singing," a third noted as another said: "Now, that’s a pro. Queen of pop!"

A fourth quipped: "And no one will dare say anything bad about her fall because she owned it and saved it with that cheeky laugh of hers!" (sic)

Due to her long-standing career, this isn’t the first time that Madonna has taken an epic stumble on stage.

Back in 2015, she fell down some stairs whilst performing Living for Love at the BRIT Awards and tripped on the cape she was wearing.

She made a quick recovery as always and reassured her fans afterwards: "Armani hooked me up! My beautiful cape was tied too tight!

"But nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up! Thanks for your good wishes! I’m fine."
