Grimes electrocuted during concert - see the scary moment (and her amazing response) here

Montreal's Grimes was performing in Dublin, Ireland when a seriously scary technical malfunction resulted in her being electrocuted on stage halfway through the show.

As you'll be able to see in the footage below, it appears the singer was shocked by her ear piece, as her audio equipment seriously went out of whack. Although she (and everyone involved) recovered from the scary situation quickly and did their best to not stop the performance, they were forced to break several times mid-song as the technical issues persisted. 
 

Following the gig, Grimes stayed true to her Canadian heritage, taking to Instagram to APOLOGIZE to employees, band mates, fans - everyone. Wow.
 

Hey! just wanna apologize to the Olympia theatre that I originally thought they were responsible for the electrical issues at last nights show. We've triple checked everything and haven't yet discovered what the issue was. The Irish promoters were nothing but lovely and I don't want them to take the blame for something that was most likely on our end. I also want to reiterate that everyone on my team and especially my audio guys did everything they could without stopping the show, but it was some kind of an issue w the vocal channel so even whilst bypassing the pedal I was getting gunshots through the vocal channel into my monitors. Perhaps it was an angry ghost. Anyway this probably doesn't make any sense to non-musicians, but w regards to the inside baseball I just wanted to say something so no one loses their job or gets in trouble for an issue that, as far as I can tell, was outside of everyone's control. Anyhow haha, apologies for the long and insane post, about to get on a 12 hour flight so hopefully this won't cause further press drama. :) and thanks again to the Irish fans!!!! I cannot reiterate how grateful I am to y'all for letting us trouble shoot between songs and for singing me happy bday and being all around jovial. Xxxxx Ps: Photo cred: @aisling_kraus
