Justin Bieber slips over mid-concert

Justin Bieber suffered a humiliating slip onstage during his concert in Missouri on Wednesday night (06Apr15).

The Baby singer uses a rain effect during a section of his gig, which leaves him and his dancers soaking wet and the surface of stage covered in water.


A fan's video footage from the show in Kansas City shows a shirtless Justin running down a ramp to the front of the stage, where there is a large puddle of water. As he hits the patch, his arms flail around as he lands on his bottom in the water, as fans can be heard screaming.


Ever the professional, Justin recovers within seconds and continues performing his hit single Sorry.


This is not the first time Justin has suffered an onstage mishap. He hurt his leg when it slipped through a set of onstage steps while he was running up them in Belgium in 2013.


He was also caught on camera tripping over a suitcase while in the audience at Jennifer Lopez's Las Vegas concert in January (16).


Justin did not reference the embarrassing incident when he went on Instagram after the show, and posted an image showing him holding a cigarette. The pop star, who is currently sporting dreadlocks, also pulled down his baggy shorts to expose the top portion of his underwear.


The singer recently defended his new hairstyle after he was accused of cultural appropriation. In video footage taken backstage at the iHeartRadio Awards in California on Sunday (03Apr16), he told rapper Big Sean, "You wanna be black and all that stuff people say, I'm like, 'It's just my hair'"


He came away from the awards show with three prizes for Male Artist of the Year, Best Fan Army and Dance Song of the Year, for Where Are U Now with Skrillex and Diplo.
