At the 2009 American Music Awards, actress/singer Jennifer Lopez took a nationally televised tumble.

She immediately got back up with her game face on and played it off like a champion.
During the final leg of her 'Circus' tour, Britney forgot what city she was in. Forty minutes into her performance in San Jose, California, she yelled, "What's up, Sacramento?" Yikes!
Beyonce Knowles fell down an entire flight of stairs while performing in Orlando, Florida. Despite rolling down center stage and landing flat on her face, Knowles continued the song and the remainder of the show like a professional as though nothing had happened. She later kindly told fans, "If you taped this, please don't put it on YouTube!"
"American Idol" judge and Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler fell backwards off the stage during a performance in Rapid City, South Dakota last year. The lead singer was airlifted to a hospital, where he received treatments or a shoulder injury and minor head and neck injuries.
Ashlee's older sister, Jessica Simpson, forgot the lyrics during a Dolly Parton tribute in 2006, alongside legendary musician Kenny Rogers.

In 2007, singer Ashlee Simpson was caught lip-syncing on an episode of "Saturday Night Live" due to technical difficulties. Simpson, feeling embarrassed, exited the stage doing a nervous jig and later blamed an injured voice and gastric distress for the necessary backup music.
Fergie admitted to wetting her pants during a 2005 performance with the Black Eyed Peas in San Diego, California.

Christina Aguilera faced an onslaught of criticism after forgetting the lyrics to the National Anthem during the nationally televised Super Bowl in Dallas, Texas.
