Mariah Carey struggled through her performance at the recent BET Honors ceremony as her dress broke while she was on stage.

The “Hero” singer unveiled her new single “You’re Mine (Eternal)” during the awards show in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 8, and she turned heads in her low-cut, cleavage-baring black gown.

Part of her performance involved singing on top of a piano, and Carey admits she struggled to keep her dress from falling down as the straps broke when she reclined.

Carey tells People.com, “I was (worried) when I laid on the piano. Right before the lights went on me, I heard ‘Pop! Pop! Pop!’ The supposedly see-through wires broke. Nobody saw anything, and it was by the grace of God that I got through the performance.”

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

Fresh
An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
