Idina Menzel nearly suffered a major wardrobe malfunction during her sold-out, one-night-only concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City Monday. To her credit, the stage star handled it with humor.

The Tony Award winner was in the midst of performing "Take Me or Leave Me," which she sang in the 2005 movie Rent, when an audience member noticed that Menzel's leather bra was riding up. "What?" she asked. "My boob's coming out?" A crewmember then walked on stage to tend to Menzel's outfit.

"She was a sexy character," Menzel said, referring to Rent's gay performance artist Maureen Johnson.

The crewmember exited the stage and left Menzel alone to readjust her boobs. "Is it in?" she asked the crowd. "This diva needs her stage!" she shouted, referencing the lyrics. "These divas need their stage!"

"Oh, that's going to be all over television," the Broadway star added. "Well, f--k it, they're real!"

Later in the show, Menzel glanced at the screen to get a better look at herself in a silver, sparkling gown. "I don't like my panty lines!" she announced, running offstage to remove the offending undergarments.

With a voice like hers, it's a wonder anyone noticed.
