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

DeGraw's face was planted shortly after finishing his performance of the national anthem before the start of Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs between the Predators and the Dallas Stars on Saturday at Bridgestone Arena.

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

Right after finishing the hymn, DeGraw took a step back and instead of his right foot stepping on the carpet, which extends specifically for the hymn singers so that they do not slip, his foot was on the ice.

What followed was DeGraw slipping, falling and drying on the ice.

It was an embarrbading moment for DeGraw, who had pop successes & # 39; Chariot & # 39 ;, & # 39; I do not want to be & # 39; e & # 39; In Love With a Girl & # 39; In Love With a Girl & # 39; in the 2000s. And his performance before his slip was free of errors.

DeGraw went to Facebook and said: "Someone said:" Break a leg. "I heard," mocking himself.

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

Cochran said: "So I walked with the steepest overpbad and then back, I think someone had seen it … it looked like a Tennessee horse … Anyway, I feel the pain of Gavin DeGraw."

OPINION: The predators are almost finished after the loss of Game 5
