Thankfully, the star realized immediately what had happened and candidly told the audience that her Versace dress had popped, saying "I love you, Donatella, but it popped, darling!"
Lara Spencer was right by her side, and helped keep anything too dramatic from happening, while help rushed onstage to try to pin the dress back together. As said perfectly by Spencer, "this is live TV!"
The crowd cheered and laughed along with Mariah, who was a great sport about it all.
