Mariah Carey struggled through her performance at the recent BET Honors ceremony as her dress broke while she was on stage.

The “Hero” singer unveiled her new single “You’re Mine (Eternal)” during the awards show in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 8, and she turned heads in her low-cut, cleavage-baring black gown.

Part of her performance involved singing on top of a piano, and Carey admits she struggled to keep her dress from falling down as the straps broke when she reclined.

Carey tells People.com, “I was (worried) when I laid on the piano. Right before the lights went on me, I heard ‘Pop! Pop! Pop!’ The supposedly see-through wires broke. Nobody saw anything, and it was by the grace of God that I got through the performance.”
