Katy Perry’s Backup Dancer Tops Left Shark, Falls Off Stage (VIDEO)
One of the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer’s backup dancers plunged off of a stage while dressed as a house to meme-worthy results.
The hilarity began during Katy’s performance of her new pop hit at the 2017 Brit Awards on Wednesday, February 22.
Although the 32-year-old simply wanted to make another political statement, things soon took a turn for the absurd.
In the now famous video, the pop star can be heard belting out the chorus as a backup dancer wearing a White House costume stumbled off stage and into the crowd.
As with Left Shark before them, the pro’s flailing behavior was only more noticeable next to the countless coordinated dancers surrounding them.
Twitter immediately had a field day with the bizarre awards show display.
“I'm crying the House fell off the stage,” one social media denizen wrote, as another individual said, “Mood: The house falling during Katy Perry's Brit performance.”

But, one very smart Twitter user noticed a much more shocking detail in Katy’s Brit appearance.
Two nightmarish skeletons appear in the “Chained to the Rhythm” performance and they look exactly like President Donald Trump and pro-Brexit British Prime Minister Theresa May.
Katy all-but-confirmed her political intentions with the press of a Twitter button.
The pop star retweeted a news story saying the performance had “a Donal[d] Trump puppet.”
The outspoken move isn’t the first time Katy got political with her new track.
The amusement park-set “Chained’ music video includes images of people being flung over giant fences on the No Place Like Home ride and crashing to the ground in the American Dream ride.
