Shania Twain Sticks It to Herself After Hilarious Mic Mix-Up Goes Viral: ‘Really Glad Someone Captured This Moment’

Shania Twain knows the No. 1 rule of live performance: if you can laugh at yourself, everyone else can too. The singer learned that lesson all over again recently during a show in which she was singing her 1995 The Woman in Me single “(If You’re Not in It For Love() I’m Outta Here!” while holding her mic in her right hand and a white and pink drumstick in the other.


At one point, Twain did a shimmy and — after tucking it under her arm just moments before — pulled out the stick and sang into it momentarily. After just a few seconds, her eyes got wide as the singer appeared to realize her mic mess-up and quickly switched while laughing and saying, “oh my God! That was hilarious!”

Proving she’s a good sport, Twain, 51, then held both up to her mouth, sang into the stick one more time for good luck and then pushed on through the rest of the performance flawlessly. Shania posted a video of the incident taken by a fan on her X account on Monday and hilariously copped to the mic mix-up. “I’m really glad somebody captured this moment, it’s made me laugh all over again,” she wrote.

Twain’s Come on Over Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood’s Bakkt Theater launched on May 10 and the singer will spend June and July performing headlining and festival gigs in the UK before returning to Strip on August 23 for shows that run through mid-December.
