Things took a bad turn when the 30-year-old singer fell down a set of steps while singing out Kiss My (Uh-Oh) in front of a 20,000-strong audience at The O2 Arena.
The singer, who had joined forces with KSI for the duet, had just started her vocals when she lost her footing and ended up at the bottom of the stairs.
Her voice wavered as she toppled onto her hands-and-knees but, like a true pro, carried on with the showstopping production.
Despite the embarrassing blunder, her adoring fans took to Twitter to voice their support, saying she quickly picked herself up and proved herself a ‘total pro’.
Even her backing dancer couldn’t hide his shock as he looked on in surprise at the jaw-dropping spectacle.
The 2002 songstress was soon joined on-stage by YouTuber-turned-rapper KSI, as they proved themselves to be quite the pairing during a collaboration.
She soon took to Twitter to brush off the controversy, writing: ‘Didn’t need my left ankle anyway.’

Anne-Marie ensured she caught the eye of onlookers as she went without a bra at the event’s red carpet earlier in the night.
The hitmaker showcased her impressively flat stomach as she opted for a skimpy black wrap-around string top which left little to the imagination.
