Beyonce almost fell during her big Super Bowl 50 performance on Sunday — but, unsurprisingly, she recovered like a pro.

The pop star can be seen dancing onstage along with her backup dancers when, in the middle of her dance to new song “Formation,” she steps back and is forced to regain her stance, seemingly losing her balance. She quickly recovers, however, her face just looking relieved.

Beyonce joined Coldplay and Bruno Mars during the halftime show, partaking in their rendition of Mars’ “Uptown Funk.”

Coldplay was the first act announced for the Big Game’s Pepsi spectacle. But Beyonce made major waves when she was announced, likely drawing in younger viewers, along with Lady Gaga, who sang the National Anthem ahead of kickoff.

Beyonce dropped her single “Formation” on Saturday, along with a politically charged music video. The Super Bowl show marks the first time she’s performed it live, but it’s not her first time at the Super Bowl. She headlined the halftime show in 2013, making major headlines when she brought back Destiny’s Child for the huge performance.

After the halftime show, Beyonce announced via an ad that she will be embarking on a world tour, Formation.

Watch the moment below.

      I know everyone makes a big deal about being “too thin” but if you’re a dancer it’s the way to be, easier to perform tough dance moves and a much “hotter look.” She’s a mom and a big gal, her body is firm, thanks to personal trainers, but she’s not a “tight dancer” the moves look like they’re a challenge for her! Also her show so un-American for a halftime show, enough of the putting down of all races, let it go, stop hating and whining about the past! A lot of performers, having tons of fame and money, just stick to what you are suppose to do, entertaining, and be content with it. People don’t want to see or hear your views on life concerns and problems, that’s what the “big guys” are for. Make your messages and music fun, not mean and full of hate, not fun or hot!

      I don’t get why Americans like ghetto idiots like Beyonce.

      Too much booty = too much ballast in the rear = nearly fall backwards. Oops!

    5. Not a very good thing to write about says:

      Why would anyone want to watch a performer almost fall?
