Gavin DeGraw sang the national anthem and found himself face down on the ice.

DeGraw face planted shortly after finishing his rendition of the national anthem prior to the start of Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs between the Predators and the Dallas Stars Saturday at Bridgestone Arena.

The Stars took a 3-2 series lead after winning 5-3.

Right after finishing the anthem, DeGraw took a step back and instead of his right foot stepping on the carpet, which is rolled out specifically for anthem singers so they don't slip, his foot was on the ice.

What ensued was DeGraw slipping, falling and wiping out on the ice.

Predators take 2-1 series lead over Stars with 3-2 victory

Predators take 2-1 series lead over Stars with 3-2 victory Mikael Granlund scored on a wrist shot from just inside the blue line with 8:19 left and the Nashville Predators, after blowing a two-goal lead, beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Monday night to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven Western Conference playoff series. Granlund, acquired in a trade with Minnesota in late February, got the puck from Dante Fabbro after Kyle Turris won a faceoff against Stars captain Jamie Benn. Rocco Grimaldi scored in his second game in a row for the Predators, and Filip Forsberg had a perfectly timed play for a goal.

It was an embarrassing moment for DeGraw, who had pop hits 'Chariot', 'I Don't Want to Be' and 'In Love With a Girl' in the 2000s. And his performance before his slip was mistake-free.

DeGraw went on Facebook and said "Someone said, 'Break a leg.' I listened," poking fun at himself.

Country music artist Stephen Cochran shared a story on Facebook of how he almost slipped before singing the national anthem.

Trisha Yearwood sang the national anthem before Game 6 of the Western Conference final between the Predators and the Ducks. Former Titans running back Eddie George, along with injured Predators forwards Ryan Johansen and Kevin Fiala, were the ceremonial towel wavers.

Since August 2016, some American athletes have protested against police brutality and racism by kneeling during the U.S. national anthem .

Cochran said: "So I walked with the most over pronounced high step out and then back I think anyone had ever seen....looked like a Tennessee walking horse... Anyway I feel Gavin DeGraw's pain."
