21 Most Infamous Stage Moments



A performer can have hundreds of spectacular shows under their belt, but what we remember the most are those unfortunate, embarrassing moments when something goes horribly wrong. From wardrobe malfunctions to falls and injuries, here are the 21 worst and most embarrassing stage moments in showbiz.

1. Madonna’s halftime tumble

The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events in the world and certainly the biggest and the most viewed one in the United States. Everyone knows that scoring the halftime Super Bowl show is a super big deal and the audience always has great expectations from that piece of entertainment.

This was particularly true in 2012 when it was announced that Madonna, the Queen of Pop, would be doing the half time show. Everyone expected the show to be spectacular, and it was, only not the way Madonna and the producers have imagined.

During her performance, Madonna slipped (or tripped), made a misstep and fell backwards down a set of stairs. When it comes to falling on stage, it could have been worse and she was lucky she didn’t break her back. Still, such a mishap during the Super Bowl half time show is one of the most embarrassing things that can happen to a performer.
