Her First Live Performance
Brianna Perry: "It's such a bad memory, that's why I remember it, but I practiced, I had dancers, I had my show outfit, I was so ready and so excited. I had candy bars that had my name on them that we were going to throw out into the crowd and everything.
"I came out [for my performance], and the first couple of steps for my first verse, my dancer bumped into me—I had on a body mic—and she knocked my mic off, but I kept rapping, I didn't notice. I noticed that she fell, but she got right back up, but the mics came off, I didn't notice that. I was still rapping and everyone was just looking at me because they couldn't hear what I was saying. I was confused as to why they were looking at me crazy, and someone ran out and brought me a handheld mic and the show went on.
"I was such a little diva about it because after the show was over ,everyone rushed in and told me I did a great job. I was just so devastated. I was so hard on myself, I was like, 'It was terrible, no one could hear me.' I was so angry but I was just like, 'I've got to get ready for my next show and that can never happen to me again.'"
