Walking on the set of The Jay Leno Show Monday night, Mariah Carey tripped over her stilettos and nearly took a nose dive into the floor. After she barely managed to save herself from a full face plant, Jay Leno escorted Carey to her seat with an arm around her back.

Laughing about the near-spill, Carey joked the whole incident was planned in advance to “make Jay nervous he might get sued. Carey blamed the trip on a malfunctioning shoe strap on her super high heels before moving on to discuss her role in Precious.

Watching the video, you’ll see Carey actually has a bit of trouble right as she enters, before she trips herself up and nearly takes a header. And the face she makes mid-trip – priceless!
