Nelly Furtado's appearance on a U.K. TV show on Saturday night (28Nov09) was marred by a string of technical disasters - including exploding microphones and missing costumes.
The singer was due to perform her new single, Broken Strings, with James Morrison on reality programme Strictly Come Dancing.
She nearly called off her slot after a series of mishaps, which saw her lose several bags of clothes and blow up two microphones during a rehearsal.
But Furtado was adamant the show would go on. She says, "It was a crazy day, but it went OK in the end."
