The singer was rushed to safety after the audience member shouted: "I'm gonna stab you!"

The source continued: "The celebs were brought out just minutes before she took to the stage. Nicki was on just before the headliner, ­Canadian star Drake, so lots of people wanted to get a good position they could stay in until the end. It was very tightly packed. Lots of people were making comments at the celebs but this one was horrible. A guy screamed right into her face: 'I'm gonna stab you!' It was really shocking."

Jade was lifted to safety by security staff who hauled her over a barrier and away from the crowds.

She said: "It was scary but I had loads of people around me so I knew I'd be safe. I think people were annoyed because they thought I was pushing in."
