The Brit Awards stage must be cursed.

Two years after Madonna started her Brit Awards performance by fallen backwards down a flight of stairs, one of Katy Perry's dancers suffered a similar fate.

Perry performed her latest single Chained to the Rhythm at Tuesday night's award ceremony.

Joined on stage by Bob Marley's grandson Skip Marley, the US singer introduced two skeleton puppets dressed as the US president and the Prime Minister as she performed her latest single . She was also joined by a group of backup dancers dressed as tiny white houses.

But at one point during her performance, one of her houses got too close to the edge of the stage and took a nasty fall.

A clip of the moment was quickly posted on Twitter and the fallen backup dancer instantly became a meme.

Perry campaigned for Hillary Clinton in last year's US election and her latest music video warns against "living in a bubble" as she visits a dystopian theme park.

In the track, Perry sings: " Are we crazy? Living our lives through a lens, trapped in our white-picket fence, like ornaments, so comfortable, we live in a bubble, a bubble, so comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, the trouble.''

Viewers watching on Twitter expressed their amusement over Perry's political performance.

One wrote: "Katy Perry just roasted Trump and Theresa May at the #Brits, I am living."

Another quipped: "Didn't realise @katyperry had hired @TheresaMay_MP as one of her backing dancers!"

"OMG IM DYING! Just watched Katy Perry drag Donald Trump and Theresa May on live TV with huge skeleton puppets. She is my idol #SlayQueen," another Perry fan said.
