During opening night of The Honeymoon Tour in Kansas City on Wednesday, the 21-year-old "Problem" singer says a malfunctioning lift nearly took her life. "I'm supposed to be going up in my lift for 'Love Me Harder', like in this wooden thing that raises up," Grande explained in a video to her fans.
Gesturing how the platform snapped, she continues, "So the wooden thing breaks and goes like this!"
"I'm about to be crushed by mechanical, by metal s**t and by wood and stuff, and I go like this and grab this thing," Grande details before adding that she was rescued by crew members. "I didn't drop the mic. I was like, 'Oh I gotta keep singing.'"
Clearly this stage mishap startled the GRAMMY nominee, as she took to Twitter to talk about the incident. "We did it!!!! I ALMOST DIED ONCE BUT OTHER THAN THAT IT FELT PRETTY GOOD!" she wrote. "I love u kansas city. so much. Thank u for putting up w my nerves."

"I almost died," Grande added. "I can't stop thinking about this, because it was literally the craziest."
Be careful on those lifts!
