Miguel smashes into fans during energetic Billboard Music Awards performance

R&B star MIGUEL shocked the audience at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (19May13) when he kicked two female revellers in the head as he performed a leap across the stage.

The Grammy Award winner was one of the acts entertaining the star-studded crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena prizegiving in Las Vegas, and was performing his song Adorn when he attempted to jump across a small number of dancing fans in front of the stage.

As he landed on a runway, his legs caught two unfortunate females, with one girl getting a kick to the head and another having her face crushed against the flooring.

Miguel continued with the track, but he later made amends for his misstep by befriending one of the girls backstage.

He tells Billboard, "Well, I think it's kind of clear what happened. But I'm very happy to bring my new friend, Khyati, we just met. Unfortunately we did not meet under the best circumstances, but I think we're OK. 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. So this is one of the less favourable moments. (I) got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is OK."
