Miguel was definitely the performance of the night after the soulful crooner managed to kick two of his female fans in the head during a terrible miscalculated attempt at a jump over the audience pit at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.
If you were wondering why your Instagram has been filled with Miguel memes, vine has been flooded with reactions of people screaming and dropping their jaws, and Twitter has been ruthlessly pulling out every Miguel joke possible, it’s because the R&B star landed on top of one of his fans during his performance at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards and sunk the heel of his boot into another woman’s face.
From the minute Miguel leaped into the air, audience members at home could tell something had gone awry. It was obvious that Miguel was unsure and a little uncomfortable about the jump and there is a reason for that. Sources are saying the daring move was completely unrehearsed and unexpected.
We thought Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake taught the world a lesson about trying to bust out new moves without telling any of the producers of the show about it, but apparently some people just have to test the fire for themselves.
The California native was giving a new rendition of his hit “Adorn” when he took two steps back to prepare for the leap that probably didn’t look so difficult from his point of view.
While he did manage to make it to the other side, he only did so after pinning one woman’s head against the stage with his crotch and kicking a brunette so hard in the face that she was forced to drop down to the ground and completely out of view of the camera.
Talk about getting up close and personal with Miguel.
The good news, however, is that the woman is doing just fine now.
During an interview after the show, Miguel brought his “new friend” backstage to apologize and try to make light of the situation.
“Well, I think it’s kind of clear what happened but I’m very happy to bring my new friend, Khyati, we just met,” he said of the young fan who was sporting an ice pack at this point. “Unfortunately we did not meet under the best circumstances, but I think we’re OK.”
He then tried to explain what caused him to attempt the jump in the first place.
“The crazy thing is, when you’re performing and you’re just kind of into it, you never know where it’s gonna go and where you’re gonna go with it, and how that might turn out.”
He concluded by saying he got “caught up in the moment,” and he is just genuinely happy that his fan is okay.
We’re sure he is because had he not been nice enough to bring her backstage and slam her with this “new friend” card, she probably would have kicked Miguel in the face with a hefty lawsuit.
Meanwhile, we’re still waiting to hear from the other fan that was nearly suffocated by Miguel’s crotch. She totally deserves some backstage access and Miguel “friendship” too… and if she doesn’t get it, she might develop a serious case of whiplash and just settle for seeing the “Adorn” singer in court.
