Nelly Furtado suffered a fall during her Coachella Festival performance and posted about the ‘blood’ she left behind on stage.

The I’m Like A Bird hitmaker, 45, is back performing for devoted – and very nostalgic – fans, but she took a bit of a tumble at the California festival over the weekend.

While performing hit song Eat Your Man as a guest of Dom Dolla on the Sahara stage, Nelly fell face first on the ground – but her recovery was extremely impressive.

In fact, the Say It Right singer didn’t miss even one word of the fast-paced track, and her voice hardly wavered during what was a fairly dramatic fall.

The legend that she is, Nelly bounced back up to her feet and continued with a knowing smile, taking to social media after the gig to laugh the tumble off.

‘Literally left it all on the stage, including my blood,’ Nelly wrote over the top of a photo of her looking enthusiastic with a big old thumbs-up – until you realise her thumb is covered in blood.

‘All for you @domdolla,’ she wrote affectionately, before posting a video of the fall and quipping: ‘Eat your man… Not the stage.’

Fans were super impressed with Nelly’s recovery, as X user @BejbaLasagna commented on the video, writing: ‘Nelly Furtado falling at Coachella but not missing a verse. A performer.’

‘Flawless recovery,’ wrote fan Lex, while Lucati added: ‘Didn’t address it, continued like nothing happened…. She got up and did the thing this is how you perform folks.’

‘SHE KEPT SINGING, MF QUEEN,’ shouted @teatreeboxes, while user @jazzyb3atz noted: ‘Damn whole ass face plant and she stayed on point, love her.’

Canadian-born Nelly – who many will remember from the very best of noughties music videos, writhing around on the floor singing about birds – also posted a few pictures of her enjoying the festival in the crowd.

Another snap saw her chilling out with her mini-me daughter Nevis, 19.

Fellow celebrities were loving Nelly’s Coachella content, as Paris Hilton commented with a love heart face emoji.

Meanwhile, Kim Cattrall simply wrote: ‘Beauty.’

This appearance at Coachella comes after Nelly stunned in Kim Kardashian’s Skims campaign video, wearing the shapewear and causing fans to do some serious double-taking.

Joining Nelly for the campaign was Coco Jones, Lana Condor, Hari Nef and Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall, all in Skims ‘icon’ shapewear.

Earlier last year, Nelly appeared in Vogue to announce her return to the public eye, sending fans into 00s orbit.
