Accident at Tony Awards Leaves Brett Michaels With Nose Fracture

Brett Michaels was left with a nose fracture, after an accident occurred during his performance with Poison during the Tony Awards opening number.

According to Michaels' spokeswoman, the singer had X-rays taken after getting hit in the head by a falling set piece at Sunday's ceremony.

Publicist Joann Mignano says Michaels fractured his nose and had to get three stitches in his lip. Because of a past neck injury, she said he was also getting a CAT scan on Monday as a precaution.

Although injured, Michaels seemed to remain in good spirits. He wiped off blood with a towel and laughed backstage as host Neil Patrick Harris teased that the singer "gave head banging a whole new meaning."

Brett Michaels and Poison performed "Nothin' But a Good Time" with the cast of "Rock of Ages," and as Michaels left the stage, he smashed into a piece of scenery and was knocked to the ground.

Footage of the accident has recently landed online, creating more publicity for Michaels than the performance itself.
