List Rules Vote up the most cringeworthy (but funny!) on-stage falls.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Literally fallen. Like on the stage, off the stage, into the audience; these musicians and performers give new meaning to falling from the top. Whether it was the result of a complicated dance move, debris on the stage, or a result of old age, there are myriad musicians and celebrities who have tumbled on and off the stage while performing.

Which singers have fallen on stage? Here's a list of the world's biggest rock stars falling. These stage accidents range from Madonna falling to Bono's stage fall, to Taylor Swift, Joaquin Phoenix, Britney Spears and even the most recent celebrity fall from Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.

Meghan made it almost all the way through her performance of "Me Too" on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon before her tight dress and high heels got the best of her. She fell on stage as the song was wrapping up, then stayed down as she tried to battle fits of laughter. Jump to the 3:44 mark to see it.

What kind of celebrity fail list would be complete without Justin Bieber bringing in the rear? 

Here he is, pretending to fight some bad guys, when he takes a dramatic spill, flipping through the air, and then limping off stage. Ouch.

Marilyn Manson

This isn't a case of the artist falling, rather the set falling on the artist. Rocker Marilyn Manson was hurt at a September 2017 concert when a set piece crashed on top of him. The props appeared to be large metal guns at the back of the stage. Manson was taken to the hospital on a stretcher, and cancelled his remaining tour dates as a result of his injuries.

Joe Jonas

During their song titled "SOS" (for anyone playing the drinking game of ironic songs to get hurt to, feel free to drink now), Joseph Jonas, of The Jonas Clones, slips and falls on shattered glass at the 2007 America Music Awards, and cuts his hand quite badly, just as a resounding "Hell Yes" was felt across the Internet, at the same time that the video was being recorded.

Nobody knows why they felt so great at that moment, but when it happened, millions of sound-minded Americans of all shapes, colors and sizes felt a little kick of joy in that moment. And isn't that what life is all about?

This video is made by a HUGE (both literal and figurative) fan. After they explain what happened to Joe Jonas, a rush of teen girls rushes the stage in this video, which kind of reminded us of that one scene in the Lion King. You know the one.

This video also now has this song stuck in our heads (click here for the non-Jonas song now stuck in your head) .
