Iggy Azalea gave her fans a scare Friday night, falling backward off the stage, while performing "Fancy" during a pre-MTV VMAs concert at the Avalon Hollywood. Mashable was several feet away from the fall, and heard gasps, screams and obscenities from fans. Guards quickly lifted a shaken Azalea off the ground, after asking if she was fine. Seconds later, the 24-year-old rapper returned onstage to thunderous applause. She laughed, finishing the song in the center of the stage with singer Charli XCX.

After finishing "Fancy," Azalea told the crowd that this was her first time falling off a stage. Azalea is nominated in seven categories for Sunday's Video MUSIC Awards — four for her Clueless-themed "Fancy" and three for her featured role on Ariana Grande's "Problem."
