Brit Awards 2015: Madonna falls off stage

Pop star Madonna has fallen off the stage during her performance at the 2015 Brit Awards.The singer tumbled down a set of stairs and landed awkwardly, apparently after a dancer tried to remove a cape she was wearing at the start of her routine.However, she recovered and returned to the stage to finish her song, Living For Love.She later released a statement saying she was “fine” and her cape had been “tied too tight”.”Nothing can stop me and love really lifted me up,” she wrote on Instagram, referencing the lyrics to her song. “Thanks for your good wishes!”The painful incident came at the end of a ceremony where Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith both won two awards.Sheeran scooped the night’s main prize, album of the year, for his record X – which was the best-selling record of 2014 in the UK.”I was really worried abut this album,” he said, accepting his trophy from actor Russell Crowe. “It took a long time to make.”The star added it had been a “very, very good year for British music”. “I don’t think a statue gives justification of people’s success,” he continued.Sheeran also won best British male, while Sam Smith took home best breakthrough artist and the global success award – recognising album sales outside the UK.
