That was a super close one Ariana Grande!

Just a few weeks after dodging a Victoria's Secret model on the runway, the 21-year-old singer nearly tripped during her highly anticipated performance at Z100's Jingle Ball Friday night.

While performing "Love Me Harder" at the sold-out concert, the 2015 Grammy-nominee had a little trouble with her footing while walking to the center of the stage. "Woooo Girl, I almost died up here," she told the crowd in her reindeer ears after making a misstep. (Skip to the 8:00 mark on YouTube and watch for yourself)

As a true professional, Grande hardly missed a beat and continued her set that featured "Problem," "Break Free" and "Santa Baby."

"show tonight was so much fun & i loved getting to meet so many of y'all! thank u & love u," she tweeted. "love & appreciation to z100 #Z100JingleBall #nyc."

Taylor Swift, 5 Seconds of Summer, Iggy Azalea and Maroon 5 were just some of the other Top 40 artists on-hand to perform at the annual concert.

In recent weeks, Grande hasn't been a stranger to delivering some memorable performances. At Los Angeles' KIISFM Jingle Ball, the singer turned up the heat when she joined boyfriend Big Sean to perform "Best Mistake."

And then there's that memorable Victoria's Secret show where Grande revealed a priceless facial expression that was destined to inspire countless memes.

"Was so nervous / excited at dress rehearsal i almost walked face first into an Angel's wings and died lmao oops. (only me..... ever....)," Grande wrote on Instagram after the taping. "Again so excited to be here @victoriassecret thank you."
