NEW YORK ” Beyonce Knowles made a dramatic misstep when she fell face-first down a flight of stairs during a concert. Ever the stage professional, she got right up and continued her performance as if nothing had happened.

The 25-year-old singer ” flipping her hair dramatically and wearing a long red trench coat and high heels ” was performing her song “Ring the Alarm” during a concert Tuesday in Orlando, Fla., when she tripped and stumbled down several stairs.

Knowles quickly regained her footing, reclaimed her microphone and went on with the show.

A spokeswoman for the singer didn’t immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press on Thursday.

Amateur videos of the tumble had nearly 900,000 hits on the Web site Thursday morning. Posting of the videos began Wednesday.
