Singer Nelly Furtado showed her determination to keep the show going for her fans despite a nasty spill while performing at Coachella.

In a clip posted to X by a fan account, Nelly Furtado Poland, Furtado is seen tripping over an item on stage during her performance of “Eat Your Man.” In the video, Furtado recovers quickly, continues the show, and later shares a close-up of her bloody thumb.

“Literally left it all on the stage,” Furtado quipped, “including my blood!”

Despite the accident, the singer was full of praise for the festival. She posted a slide show to her Instagram account, exclaiming, “My very first COACHELLA! What a dream!”

Furtado, age 45, shot to fame with her hit single “I’m Like a Bird” in 2000. For the next several years, she worked tirelessly in the studio producing music. Her sixth studio album, “The Ride,” was released in 2017, followed by a break of six years from the music industry.

During her absence, Furtado was focused on raising her three children. She chose to return to Canada, where she was born and raised, to provide a quieter life during their formative years.

Furtado’s return to performing was marked by a surprise appearance during Drake’s set at the Ovo festival in 2022, with the crowd wildly cheering her unexpected arrival. Her return is a moment Furtado remembers fondly, according to Vogue.

“I’ve thanked [Drake] for dragging me out on that stage, because I haven’t looked back since,” she said of the mini comeback. “I was a little hesitant because it had been so long. I was literally at the zoo with my two toddlers that morning.”

Furtado followed the appearance with multiple performances, while teasing her fans that a new album was in the works.

Regarding her comeback, Furtado stated that she is determined to continue to make music and embrace her talent as she navigates her changing personal life.

“I want to inspire other moms and women out there that, even in their 40s, you can re-embrace your talents and go for it,” she said, according to CBC Music. “Making music is the only thing that I’m really good at.”
