(CBS/CNN) - It's the fall seen around the world - a model took a spill on stage during the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

It was pre-taped last week in Shanghai. There were rumors the blunder would be cut out when the show aired Tuesday on network TV, but they showed the fall and included producer commentary, as well as the action backstage.

Model Ming Xi got entangled in a flowing ensemble and hit the catwalk. She recovered with a smile and applause from the audience.

But she broke down into tears backstage. Cameras also caught some of her fellow models coming to comfort her.

This was the first time the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show came to Asia.
