P Diddy Falls Into A Hole On Stage At The 2015 BET Awards
P Diddy fell into a hole on stage at the BET Awards while performing to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Bad Boy Records.
P Diddy Falls Into Hole On Stage Mid Bad Boy Records Performance
Diddy took the stage with Bad Boy Records’ Lil Kim, Faith Evans and Pharrell Williams at the 2015 BET Awards on Sunday, June 29. Mid-way through the 10-minute performance of Bad Boy Records’ greatest hits, Diddy, who was onstage for the entire performance, accidentally fell in a hole in the stage. Diddy lost his footing and fell right into the hole. Luckily, he landed on his feet and was able to get up and continue performing without missing a beat. The hole was actually an opening in the stage to allow Lil Kim’s grand entrance. Less than a minute after Diddy’s fall, Lil Kim rose up from below the stage, through the hole, eliciting screams from the crowd.
(Diddy falls around the 5:20 mark.)
Diddy later took to Instagram and joked about his big fall, posting a short clip of the moment and writing, “I was getting o loose I fell! LOL, but really though I busted my ass! …IF YOU EVER FALL DOWN, get your ass up and FIGHT!!!!!!! But really though, I crack up every time I see this s—t! It’s like I f—king disappeared. HAAAAAA!!!! I was scared as f—k but I had to get up!”
Later in the show, Diddy flubbed his lines during his introduction of Smokey Robinson and had to ask the producers to rewind the teleprompter. “I’m sorry, y’all, I’m a little nervous because we just celebrated 20 years and it’s like a big deal for me, so thank you for being with me. I appreciate you. I’ve got to do it right for Smokey, can you start it again?” Diddy said.
Robinson received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the ceremony.
