The Canadian pop star was performing in the Big Easy in 2002 when she slipped and toppled from the platform as she sang her hit track I'm Like A Bird.
The audience was convinced the dramatic incident was a scripted part of the show, but Furtado was left writhing in agony and fearing she'd suffered fatal injuries.
She tells British magazine Live, "I thought I was going to die when I fell 10 feet off stage. In 2002 I was performing at a big arena in New Orleans. I was in the middle of singing the most sensitive part of I'm Like A Bird when I stumbled and fell 10 feet to the ground.
"The crowd seemed to think it was part of the show. 'She's singing about being like a bird and she's trying to fly. How cool.' But I was hurt."
