Posted: Updated:

The Billboard Music Awards isn't always the jazziest award show of the year, but Sunday's program featured at least one standout moment. R&B crooner Miguel jump kicked from one part of the stage to another during his performance of "Adorn," falling more than a bit short and landing on an audience member's head and/or neck.

No, seriously. Watch:

Miguel adressed the incident on Twitter, noting that he "got caught up in the moment."

got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay

Billboard writer Erika Ramirez assured viewers that the audience member was OK:

The girl Miguel accidentally hurt is okay. She was seen backstage w/ him (holding an ice pack).

... she even said "I adorn him."

So there you have it, the R&B version of the WWE:
