A botched backflip is no match for Britney, bitch.

Britney Spears managed to push through an unexpected acrobatics fail during her set at Tuesday’s Apple Music Festival in London.

Judging by a few videos posted to Twitter, it appears that perhaps there was a miscommunication with her flip assistant. However, Spears told BBC Radio 1 on Wednesday that she bailed on the flip at the last minute because the dancer helping her had never done the move onstage.

“Usually I have the same guy. There was a new guy. It was his first time, and I couldn’t do it,” she said.

No matter, though: Brit didn’t fall down, and she and her array of sparkly thong leotards finished the set strong.

And her fans, for the record, did not seem to mind the flip that could have been.
