Oh no, this isn’t good. One of Nicki Minaj’s backup dancers was bitten by a snake during her rehearsal for her new hit “Anaconda.” Nicki was on stage doing a run through if the performance when one of the females dancers was bitten by a snake, which is thought to be a 6 foot long anaconda. She was taken to the hospital as a precaution, where she was treated. The snake was removed from the stage and its unclear if any snakes will take the stage Sunday night.

These are the scary situations you encounter when live animals are involved in performances.

Update: According to MTV, the snake bite is not life-threatening. It is not an anaconda, but a Dumeril’s boa constrictor named Rocky. Rocky was removed from the stage as soon as he bit the female dancer on the arm. Another snake may be used during the telecast.
