There was shock among the audience at an Iggy Azalea gig in Brazil after one of her back up dancers collapsed on stage after having a seizure.

The dancer fell to the floor during Iggy's hit song, Black Widow, and there was major concern as their body started shaking uncontrollably.

In a video that was shared on SPORTV , the scene at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro showed how frightening the incident was for all that were there.

Iggy, 28, continued to perform, apparently unaware of the severity of the dancer's condition but she has now defended her decision to do so.

Writing on her Instagram story to give an update on the performer's condition, Iggy wrote: "Just want to let everyone asking know my dancer is OKAY! The light & heat caused her to have a seizure. She is backstage feeling much better."

Legislators will consider bills next year to allow medical marijuana to be grown in Georgia and sold to patients after a state commission unanimously endorsed the proposal.

The group studying Georgia’s medical marijuana laws voted last week to pursue legislation that would license marijuana growers, manufacturers and dispensaries.

If approved, Georgia’s 6,000 registered medical marijuana patients could legally obtain the drug for the first time.

The state’s medical marijuana law, passed in 2015, allows patients to possess and use marijuana with less than 5 percent THC, but it remains illegal to buy, sell or transport it. THC is the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant.

State lawmakers should consider providing 10 grow licenses, 10 manufacturing licenses and an “adequate number” of dispensing licenses to ensure access to medical marijuana across the state, according to the recommendations of the Joint Commission on Low THC Medical Oil Access.
