About the Time Miguel Dropkicked a Fan at the Billboard Awards

I did not watch the Billboard Awards yesterday because I frankly couldn’t muster any dambs to give about it. I didn’t e’em realize it was coming on til I saw a tweet about it around 4pm. Still. No dambs were given.

Anywho, when it wrapped, I started hearing about the performances, especially Miguel’s. During his set where he sang “Adorn,” he leapt from one part of the stage to another. Fans were between the stages, and it went more than slightly awry.


Shoutout to for this GIF


First of all, he approached it like he was in a long jump competition. The fact that he landed on his butt is hilarious because was that the plan all along? He shoulda tried to land on his feet, like a cat with a cowlick and too much hair gel.

When he was at rehearsal and he did that jump, was this the result then too? If it was, what made him think it’d be a good idea to try it LIVE and fail so poorly? If he did NOT rehearse this (which is what this looks like), what made him think it’d be a good idea to try it LIVE?

See a theme here?

Miguel is no athlete. The space between those stages doesn’t seem like TOO much. How could he miss the target by so much? He shoulda been at the tracks for weeks leading up to this show getting his hops together. People don’t practice no more all they do is leap.

But most importantly, the poor fan who he basically dropkicked through the goalposts of life and slammed her head on the stage. OUCH! That girl came to the Billboard Awards to cheer, not for her face to be used as a slap bracelet. That ish musta hurt like hell. GAHTDAMB! Miguel assured us all that she didn’t get seriously hurt though.

Miguel Billboard Tweet

So no. He didn’t rehearse this. He got caught up in the spirit of the music and decided to leap between stages like he was some R&B Spiderman. No sir. No. Outchea overestimating his abilities. And Khyati might be okay but I bet her dignity’s hurt. Your face doesn’t meet the floor and you walk away feeling like your day went well. Nope.

Oh Miguel. Bless your heart for having the FAIL moment of the night. The moral of this story is: If your pants are too tight, don’t try acrobatics. Don’t do something you didn’t rehearse on the live telecast.

It’s a bird. It’s a plane! NO, IT’S FALLING MIGUEL! O____O

Did y’all watch the BillBoard Awards? Do you think Khyati needs to be compensated for her tough time? Also, am I the only one that laughed a little?

Edit: On 15th view and because of my good eyed commenters, I see that there’s a 2nd fan who was dropkicked in the process too. Miguel’s legs were doing the footwork while in the air and they came down on two innocent by-jiggers. One was dropkicked and the other was teabagged. They both have my sympathies. Chile…

Check out Rembert Browne’s post on it on Grantland. His take is always hilarity.

    I laughed harder dennamug!!! I feel bad for poor Khyati, cuz she sho’ nuff didn’t see that coming. I hoped Miguel gave her something for her pain and suffering besides Tylenol and Advil. If that was me we would have been fighting!

    • May 20, 2013 at 11:53 am

    No, I did not laugh a little – I hollered! Miguel has already proven he has the agility of snail but to take an innocent bystander down with him? And the fact that he grabbed the wrong girl when he tried to recover is humorous – Sir, the victim is on the floor. Luvvie, please find Khyati for a comment!

    • May 20, 2013 at 11:52 am

      Khyati is prolly somewhere nursing her dignity back to health cuz…

        Nawl, Khyati is lookin’ like Quasimodo retnam! And somebody, I say, SOMEBODY In that chile’s family is bout to post a pic if Miguel dont come up off some stacks like yesterday. In the words of Trinidad, “don’t bleee me, jeh watch”.

    The speed and force with which he applied his nuts to that poor girl’s chin makes adult movie stars jelly…

    I gave my damb away earlier in the day so I was tapped out by the time it came on. I read a few posts on my fb feed & waited until somebody let me know that Prince was coming on next. Then i tuned in. Then I started seeing memes all over & comments about how some poor chile was violated by a flying singer & may be paralyzed. Glad that was an over statement. But Miguel may lose some dough over this. She may have seemed fine but she may have been in shock. Let’s she how she feels this morning.

    Don’t get me wrong – I like Miguel. But not 10 seconds after I told my husband, “You almost need to be on acid to really get into Miguel’s performances,” he leaps (three-quarters of the way) across the stage like a little pocket-sized super hero and I fell. to. pieces. Wearing the tiniest man heels I’ve ever seen. Y’all.

    We watched it in slow motion no less than 10 times, all while wiping full blown tears from our eyes. Somebody oughta write that girl a big fat check because the elevator-drop-down-to-ground-level maneuver she did after impact was more than I could handle. I am glad she’s okay though cause it was not looking good for her.

    If this wasn’t the funniest response I’ve seen to the Miguel incident, I don’t know what was then. Luvvie you are he-larious! Here is my favorite part of your post “He got caught up in the spirit of the music and decided to leap between stages like he was some R&B Spiderman”…OMG the visual of him leaping and you saying he was a R&B Spiderman is bout to get me fired for laughing so intensely at work. Miguel is wrong on so many levels for trying that ignant ish! Who does that? FOOL!

  13. glenda kay
    May 20, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    Nobody in their right mind should try to leap, jump or even hop-scotch with some tight azz skinny jeans on. Miguel, Imma have to introduce you to sweat pants if you keep this ish up…

  14. Brittni
    May 20, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    Sadly, I didn’t laugh when I initially saw his performance (via YouTube)…my humor dam burst open later.

    In the full video, you see him “recover” after the performance and then continue down the stage and keep singing. One camera though, has such a wide angle that you can see fans off to the left alternately trying to help the victim up from the floor AND still cheering for the song.

    There’s one guy, in particular, who looks like he’s saying, “Damn baby, can I help? Shit this my song though. Wait, is she bleeding? Man, this fool is really hittin’ these notes! Ah hell, is she unconscious?! Oh well, I’m finna be on tv nigga!”

    THIS is what gave me life.

  19. May 20, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    I am in tears right now from your review of Miguel’s unplanned WWE moves. When I intially saw it I thought he was stage diving feet first. But regardless of what he was trying to do, he should have stuck with getting jiggy with his mic stand and called it a day.

  20. janna
    May 20, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    He may have rehearsed, but no one would volunteer to stand in the pit to show that he actually has to leap, not just skim across it like a puddle. minor oversight…

  21. May 20, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    Okay, so I missed it but I promise this recap gave me everything. Everythang I tell you and the comments got me crying.

    Adorn is not even a song that is worthy of a jump so I don’t know what the hell he thought he was doing! It’s a slow jam. WTF? That poor baby who got her glasses knocked off never got back up. She was on the ground and the crowd was like “Eff it…WE ON TV!” Poor girl probably got stomped on. I’m sure after the adrenaline wore off that both of them were hurtin’ for certain! He needs to just go on and settle out of court now. I’m sure you’re right Luvvie….her dignity HAS to be hurt after that. She prolly didn’t even go to the awards for his ass. She wanted to see Taylor Swift!

    May 20, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    Y’all got me in here squeeling like a lil’ piglet! These comments is RICH! Especially the one about “what is air?” I love it! A few things I’m weak about:

    1. Look at the white dude with the longish hair on the left side of the stage. Watch this dude hold his applause to see if Miguel makes it. Mouf is WIDE OPEN when he dont. But this sucka claps ENNWEIGHS! Remind me of Cedric in Kings of Comedy when he was the sports announcer for the golf tournament: …annnnnnndd here he goes…. Got damn, Dawg! You almost had that shit, Mayne! You almost had it!

    2. Errbody faces goes quickly from Wow!!!excitement) to SHAT!!! WHAT tha FOCK man!

    3. You see the black girl on the left holding up both her hands and as he comes over, BAM! Knocks it right out. She’s balling up her fist like it hurts. (I smell class action hur)

    4. Miguel face when he realizes he’s sittin’ on a girl’s face and not the stage! PRICELESS! I get the feeling that sittin’ on a woman’s face might not be something he ever, Ever, EVER planned to do *smirk*

    5. Dude with the red baseball cap turned backwards and white shirt… Givin’ me LIFE! Look at how he just KNEW Miguel won’t go make it. He just gripped his arms together real tight and squeezed like “EEEeeeeeeek!”

    6. The girl in the white on the right side…

    7. “Two chicks at the same time.” That’s what I’d do if I made a million dollars and became a famous singer. Two chicks at the same time. (Office Space reference)

    8. I have one question and only one. Did this nigga e’em practice?! I think I know the answer.

    9. Anybody notice how tall them boot heels are. This negro is a undercover Keebler and umma need him to offer some Fudge Stripes and Rainbow Chocolate Chips Deluxe as consolation to all involved!

Can anybody just sang a GAHTDAMB song anymo’? WTF!! was he thinkin’ Where is legal? Shit, where WAS legal when they planned this shit. Do the performers just sign a form accepting all responsibility if shit goes wrong during their performance? Is every man for him/herself? I haz queschens! Artists need to stay in their lane. And that pompadour is brangin’ foaf Little Richard. Miguel, is that the image you bringin to the game? In all his babyhair goodness, I knows the boy meant well. But damn. Save that clown shit for the BET music awards next time, yo. BET Music Awards: Where all half-assed, budget restrained, poorly planned music award shows go to die.

    Baby he should have got up writing checks. This needed to be handled by him or one of him reps within minutes. The longer he gives him victims (as they will be labeled in the complaint) to think about it along with us (the witnesses) the more he will pay. Plus… I totally see #BBMA totally not backing him because he clearly didn’t practice this.

    Miguel looks to be getting in some serious trouble. Khyati’s lawyer is now claiming Khyati has suffered what appears to be brain damage in the wake of the incident and that Khyati is waiting for test results to confirm.

    • June 5, 2013 at 8:51 am

      Yup. and I feel sad for Khyati because that hit she took did look like it hurt. I really hope she doesn’t suffer permanent damage from Miguel’s failed attempt at being a superhero.
