Pop star Selena Gomez was left nursing more than a bruised ego when she took a tumble during a concert last week.

The “Come & Get It” hitmaker was performing her track “Slow Down” during a gig in Fairfax, Virginia when she joined her dancers in a routine, jumping up and down to get the crowd going.

However, Gomez misjudged how close she was to the edge of the stage, and jumped over the ledge and onto a lower platform, leaving her on her knees.

A back-up dancer quickly raced to her rescue and she continued singing.
