Grammys 2016: Gwen Stefani Falls Down During 'Make Me Like You' Live Video Performance [WATCH]
The 2016 Grammy Awards returned to the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Monday (Feb. 15). The night was filled with surprising wins, tributes to iconic musicians, and unforgettable performances. Gwen Stefani decided to take her performance one step further by introducing the world to a live video of her new song, "Make Me Like You." Unfortunately, she fell down before completing her segment.
Stefani's video gave off a '50s vibe with an old school beauty parlor scene, costume outfits that look like they could have been taken from the set of Grease or Pleasantville, and a trademark dessert bar. While the backdrop for the video might have been playful, the song lyrics focused on moving forward with a new relationship after a breakup.
As she was rollerblading with a partner, the 46-year-old co-host of The Voice accidentally tripped over her own feet, taking a spill in front of everyone. Stefani was not able to catch her fall like Beyoncé did in her infamous Super Bowl 50 performance. Stefani also paid tribute to her newfound love, Blake Shelton, with subtle images like naming the bar in the video after him. Then of course, there's the lyrics.

"I was fine before I met you," Stefani sings in the new single. "I was broken but fine. I was lost and uncertain. But my heart was not mine. I was free before I met you. I was broken but free. All alone in a clear view, but now you are all I see... I could get used to this. It's getting harder to leave it. Your lips on my lips. Oh I can't believe it."
"Make Me Like You" will be featured on Stefani's upcoming third solo album, This is What the Truth Feels Like. The album is expected to hit shelves on March 18.
