Khadija Nicholas, one of Rihanna’s dancers gave an interview to a Brooklyn blog. During the interview she was asked about touring with Rihanna.

Khadija Shari Nicholas is at the top of her game and proves that Brooklyn raises greatness!
Q: How was it performing on the Diamonds World Tour?
A: It was a very intimate concert, not as live and upbeat as the Loud Tour but still a wonderful experience. So many people love the Unapologetic album as a whole making the tour so successful. Rihanna had us perform with her to give the stage life and a different dynamic.
Q: Can you tell us one of your most embarrassing moments?
A: Yes! I fell during Rihanna’s performance of “Pour It Up” in Seattle. (laughter) At this point there were only Rihanna and two dancers, and I was one of the two. Let me tell you about that day. We were shooting a commercial for NBA playoff time, they had us shooting it over and over and over. All this on the same day as the show. So by the time the show came my legs were so fatigued, I went to do one step and just collapsed. I got up so quick to continue dancing. I was like, wait did that just happen?
Q: Do you think anyone noticed?
A: To be honest I don’t know. But one person tweeted me and said “Did you fall?” I was like, Yeah….Yeah that happened!
