Our list of the funny stage show fails begins with Steve Harvey’s embarrassing moment at Miss Universe beauty pageant in 2015. Being the host of the show, one of his responsibilities was to announce the winner of the pageant which he did only he read out the wrong name as the winner. After a few minutes, he came back to announce the correct name, a gesture which wasn’t pretty at all. Thankfully, he apologized on social media to both contestants albeit he wrongly spelled the names of their countries.

This is one of those funny but really embarrassing ultimate stage fails.

We love the Jonas brothers for a number of reasons one of which is their electric performances on stage. Sadly, once in a while a failed stage show occurs right before your very own eyes making you appreciate the fact that everyone has their moments.

This is one of the funny stage show fails which will make you laugh so hard you might lose a rib. So while performing in London, Method Man decided to throw himself over a cheering crowd of fans. He climbed on top of a speaker and let himself loose only for the audience to split instead of catching him. Apart from multiple bruises, Method Man left that stage with a bruised ego and a lesson well learnt.

Perhaps it was because 2007 was a challenging year for Britney Spears so that when she made a comeback after releasing her single “Gimme More”, her highly expectant fans were greatly disappointed. At the VMA Awards opening, her failed stage show came off as rather unrehearsed, lacking energy and vigor and simply lifeless. This performance went down history lane as one of the ultimate stage fails.

You know the way instrumentalists sometimes like to boast of being pros in throwing their portable instruments in the air and catching them before they reach the floor? Well, Krist Novoselich, Nirvana’s bassist, pulled this stunt in 1992 only this time, he fell on his forehead while trying to catch it forcing him to fall off the stage. Unaware that this was one of the failed stage show fails, Kurt Cobain, their front man, kicked Krist’s back as he was leaving stage, a deed he later took time to apologize for.

If you watched this rather “infamous” episode of Saturday Night Live featuring Ashlee Simpson as the invited artist, you wouldn’t have missed one of the sad and ultimate stage fails of all time. During her second performance, a wrong backing track began playing revealing Ashlee lip syncing all the way. Being nervous, she tried to dance around before leaving the stage and letting the viewers watch her band perform shortly before a clearly unplanned commercial took over. Some people believe that this performance is part of the reason her career never resurfaced after that.
1. Janet Jackson revealed privates

It was definitely accidental but nonetheless fire for the media and the public at large. Janet and Justin Timberlake were both performing at the Super Bowl in 2004 with Janet dressed to impress (read to show off her assets) and not in a good way. During the performance, Justin accidentally revealed Jackson’s breast for the whole world to see. No one has been able to forget the funny stage show; for some people, whenever Janet’s name is mentioned, this occurrence always springs to mind.
