Christina Aguilera Falls during Grammys Aretha Franklin Tribute

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Christina Aguilera (video below) fell during the 2011 Grammys Aretha Franklin tribute tonight. Christina Aguilera’s fall was not clearly captured by the Grammys’ broadcast because it happened shortly after one song’s conclusion. While fans tonight are debating whether it was just a slip or a trip, news is reporting that Aguilera clearly fell on stage after the song’s conclusion and while cameras were rolling.

Aguilera gave a stunning performance during the Franklin tribute. She was joined by Jennifer Hudson, Yolanda Adams, Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine and Martina McBride. Aguilera performed Ain’t No Way.

But the slip came during the group’s performance of “Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves.” After the song concluded, the director pulled to a long shot and Aguilera was seen falling backwards. It remains unclear if Augilera’s dress or shoes were to blame.

Ironically, just days ago, Mariah Carey detailed how shoes have caused her to fall many times on stage. Carey’s remarks came during her live HSN interview to promote the sale of her designer shoes. During that HSN broadcast this weekend, Carey explained the difficulty she and other female performers have with shoes on stage. Carey told views that usually female singers are given new heels for each performance. Carey explained she and her stylist always prepare her shoe’s soles before performances to prevent slippage. But Carey admitted many times in her career she has still fallen because the shoes weren’t prepared right for the stage.
