This was exactly the case for Iggy Azelea, when singing Black Widow at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium when one of her dancers suddenly collapsed. 

“Somebody put the medic up here,” Azalea said over the mic when she noticed what was happening behind her on stage... But the 'Fancy' hitmaker did not halt her performance, instead, she turned back to the crowd while the other backup dancers helped their colleague.

After a few seconds, the music was finally cut out and medics drove an ambulance on stage to remove the dancer, who has since recovered.

Watch the incident here:

Many fans blasted Azalea on social media, saying that the singer should have immediately stopped the performance until she knew the dancer was all right.

The singer later addressed that criticism in one of her Instagram story, she wrote: "Hey guys. I just want to let everyone asking know my dancer is OK. The lights and heat caused her to have a seizure. She is backstage feeling much better," she said.

"Two, we are all really shaken up by what happened and just thankful she is OK.

"Three, I know it’s easy to make memes of someone ‘passed out’ but someone have a seizure isn’t funny, it’s really scary! I hope my fans do not repost some of the memes I’m seeing about my dancer."
