Singer Marie Osmond has collapsed during the taping of hit talent show Dancing with the Stars.
The “Paper Roses” star left audiences fearing for her life when she passed out after her samba routine during the live recording on Monday.
The show immediately cut to commercial during its East Coast airing.
After being attended to, Osmond eventually came back around and told the crowd she fainted because she wasn’t breathing during her dance.
After getting back to her feet, she said, “I forget to breathe. I’m fine, thank you,” drawing rousing applause from the audience.
Osmond, 47, went on to joke she was sleeping on the job.
