Lost in space!

Perry took the wacky mishap in stride, even encouraging fans to film her as she was stranded above them.

Perry had just performed "Thinking of You" aboard the floating prop but rather than gracefully glide back to the Bridgestone Arena stage as planned, she became stranded in mid-air, where she began hilariously ad-libbing, Billboard reports.

"This is the first time I’ve been stuck in space! I know I’m kind of a space cadet, but actually, this thing is being stuck right now," the 32-year-old superstar quipped. "I'm going to be stuck here forever. Should I tell some jokes? Should I tell some stories?"

"You better pick your phone up, ‘cause this is a YouTube moment!" the "Swish Swish" singer told fans.

Eventually, the prop descended to the ground, forcing Perry to clumsily stage dive from it.

"I guess I’m just gonna have to get down and walk amongst my people,” she joked before being escorted back to the stage.

As for audience members, they cheered wildly for the star during her space snafu — and quickly began sharing videos of it online.

Here's hoping the next stop on Perry's tour brings her back to earth more smoothly.
