(CBS) What's better than watching pretty people on TV? Watching pretty people fall on live TV. That's what happened to Shania Twain at the CMT Awards Wednesday night.

On her way to the stage to present the award for best male video of the year, Twain slips and falls, first disappearing into the shadows next to the audience before quickly reappearing on her knees, laughing and (presumably) a little embarrassed.

On stage, Twain giggles  through her introduction of the award, which was won by Blake Shelton.
