The 2013 Billboard Music Awards did not go off without a hitch — or an injury. Miguel took the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to perform his hit song “Adorn,” and three minutes in decided to take a running leap across a pit full of fans onto a separate stage runway.
Only he didn’t make it to the second stage area without hooking a woman’s head with his crotch. Miguel landed on his behind, slamming the unsuspecting fan’s head into the stage.
The video below shows the incident, but don’t watch it if you’re squeamish. The singer seems unaware of the woman’s injury, as she is escorted away while he continues his performance. Miguel later met the woman, who was interviewed backstage while holding an ice pack, and sent out a tweet.
got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay

“Adorn” was nominated for Top R&B song, but Miguel lost the category to Rihanna.
