Miguel‘s high-energy performance of his song “Adorn” during the Billboard Music Awards totally wowed the crowd, UNTIL the end when he tried to make a leap over the audience — and fell short! He landed on the edge of the stage, and ended up body slamming two young women in the front row.
While the 27-year-old singer was performing his hit song, he decided to take a leap of faith across the stage and jump over the crowd. Unfortunately, he overestimated his long jump skills and ended up landing on top of two young female fans.
Miguel kept going, but the young women looked visibly hurt! One (who’d had her arm crushed) kept her head down for a few moments, and another (who’s HEAD he had landed on) looked like she completely left the crowd. It seemed like Miguel didn’t really know what he was doing either, because he grabbed another woman in the crowd and kept singing to her.
Here’s the video:
After his performance, Miguel clearly felt terrible about his performance blunder, and delivered a heartfelt apology and gesture to one of the injured women. He brought her backstage after the accident, and told her how sorry he was!
Even though it looked incredibly painful to be jumped on by the music star — especially with that height and at that speed — being backstage at the BBMA’s might have made up for it.
And on the plus side, at least Miguel looks like he only weighs like 105 pounds..
But on the plus side, thanks to the internet there was INSTANTLY hilarious memes and gifs everyyyywhere to get some humor out of the situation:
