Well, that's definitely one way to open your show…

Lady Gaga returned to Las Vegas for her Enigma residency last night (17 Oct) after taking a short break from her shows and it's safe to say that the she is probably nursing a few bruises this morning. The 'Shallow' singer ended up hitting the floor hard after being dropped by a fan that she had invited up on stage.

It all started when Lady Gaga summoned an audience member to dance with her – but she kind of overestimated his strength. The A Star is Born actress wrapped her legs around his waist, but then he accidentally lost his footing and the pair both came tumbling down.

To make matters worse, after dropping Gaga, the fan also fell on top of her. Security rushed in to hoist Gaga up and the fan looked absolutely mortified. That should make for one of the most memorable gig experiences...

Of course, when you take a tumble like that you just want to disappear and lay low for a while. But no, the footage was posted on Twitter for all to see.

Needless to say, Gaga seems to be recovering from her fall. She shared a photo of her "post show routine" on Instagram following the incident and it looks like she needs a lot of self-care. The images showed her chilling in an ice bath, which is known to soothe sore and aching muscles.

She wrote: "Post show routine: ice bath for 5-10 min, hot bath for 20, then compression suit packed with ice packs for 20."

Lady Gaga's Enigma residency has been running at the Park MGM in Las Vegas since December 2018. The show will draw to a close in May 2020 and according to Rolling Stone, Gaga is said to be making a whopping $100 million from the two-year residency.
