Kids' Choice Awards 2011: Willow Smith soars, back-up dancer falls

It's no surprise that Willow Smith killed her Kids' Choice Award performance, an aerial mash-up of "21st Century Girl" and "Whip My Hair."

What is a surprise is that the folks at Nickelodeon didn't bother to properly de-slime the stage before the final musical number of the night.

How do we know? Because one of Smith's backup dancers almost took a header off the stage when she slipped and fell. A true professional, she got right back up -- but as you can see in the clip below, it was hardly subtle.

Oh the perils of being a 21st century girl...
