Beyonce Knowles made a dramatic misstep and fell face-first down a flight of stairs during a concert. But as she is the stage professional, she got up and went on like nothing had happened.
The 25-year-old singer - flipping her hair dramatically and wearing a long red trench coat and high heels - was performing her song "Ring the Alarm" during a concert Tuesday in Orlando, Florida, when she tripped and stumbled down several stairs.
Knowles quickly regained her footing, reclaimed her microphone and went on with the show.
A spokeswoman for the singer did not immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press on Thursday.
Amateur videos of the tumble had nearly 900,000 hits on the YouTube.com Web site Thursday morning. Posting of the videos began Wednesday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his speech dedicated to the Day of the Russian Navy, recalled the threats that Russia is currently facing from a number of countries.
