Ariana Grande can laugh at herself.
While performing her Sweetener World Tour in Tampa, Florida, on Sunday, the ‘No Tears Left to Cry’ singer, 26, took a tumble — while walking across a table in high-heeled boots — and fell to her knees. However, she recovered with a smile and had a good sense of humour about it.
oh my. at least i still made the button. i’m crying. things were going too well. https://t.co/OuwXnTbQdo— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) November 25, 2019
While strutting across a table surrounded by her backup dancers, Grande lost her footing and fell to her knees. Before she had a chance to say “ouch,” a male dancer waiting by the side swooped in to help and guided her back to her feet.
Pretty much immediately, she was smiling and laughing — and it was on with the show.
Grande acknowledged the fall later in the show, a fan video shows. She thanked fans for “making me feel loved when I fell earlier. I had to fall. It’s been 87 shows and I haven’t fallen yet, so I was waiting for it. Things were going too well.”

After the show, her Twitter timeline was all about the fall — and she took it in good stride. When one person posted the clip and pointed out that she “fell on beat,” she replied, “Oh my. At least i still made the button. I’m crying. Things were going too well.”
Fans were super supportive of the whole thing on social media too.

And she gave Tampa a shout-out on her Instagram after the show.
Grande’s tour is expected to conclude on 22 December in California, just in time for the holidays.
