Singer Ellie Goulding had a very scary moment while performing at Victorious Festival in Portsmouth, UK this weekend. In a shocking moment, the singer, 36, was hit in the face by Pyro – aka fire – while belting out her club banger Miracle.
The flame went off at the wrong time, leaving Ellie startled as it blasted into her face. Ellie could then be heard screaming and shouting, ‘F**k!’, totally understandably, before running away from the Pyro machine and holding her face.
It was bound to have been a scary ordeal, but it seems Ellie was very lucky and is ok. While she hasn’t addressed the technical slip-up, she did post to Instagram shortly after her performance at the event, sharing a shot of the crowd.

Despite the scary incident, Ellie delighted thousands of revelers with her tunes, looking chic in an all-black ensemble. The Starry Eyed hitmaker sported an asymmetrical top and jeans combo, with her blonde locks styled in loose waves.
Ellie put on an energetic show for 170,000 festival-goers, with the likes of Mumford & Son, Raye, and Kasabian also on the Victorious line-up.
She joined Harris’s island celebrations to perform their number one tune Miracle together on stage at Ushuaïa.
