The pop star tumbled over while she was dancing with a contestant on stage and was left struggling to preserve her modesty. Luckily, her somewhat over-the-top rendition of Ariana Grande's "Dangerous Woman" was enough to convince the judges to save her from a life of drudgery and send her to Hollywood.
