This is the moment a Chinese pop singer embarrasses himself during a packed concert when he suddenly falls off the stage mid-song.

Xue Zhiqian, known by his stage name ‘Joker’, was performing at a musical festival in his native Shanghai, in East China, when the unexpected blunder happened on the evening of 2nd November.

Fan footage from the night shows the singer-songwriter full of emotion and engrossed in his own lyrics as he sings his 2018 hit ‘Forsaken Youth’ to screaming audience members.

But Xue, 36, appears to forget his position on the stage and suddenly finds himself on the edge.

He loses his balance mid-sentence and stumbles forwards off the stage as his fans scream in shock.

As his band continues to play, Xue is helped to his feet by staff members around the stage and carried back to the steps.

The pop singer appears to be in some pain as he is helped back on stage, but he manages to power through it and continues singing to his impressed fans.

Xue, who first shot to fame on Chinese singing contest My Show in 2005, was apparently not seriously injured.

After his concert, he shared a post online wishing his fans good night.

Xue is known for his eccentric performances and his love for face makeup.
