Miguel has spent the year putting out powerful hits, but on Sunday night (May 19) the Kaleidoscope Dream singer may have delivered his biggest one yet at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.
The spirited performer took the stage at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to rock his 2012 fan-favorite “Adorn,” with his usual rockstar flair, but at the tail-end of the song a mistimed jumped turned into what looked like a painful accident when Miguel landed on top of two fans.
Just as the tune was winding down, Miguel launched over a pit of fans hoping to clear the crowd and land cleanly on the other side of the stage. Instead he caught a young lady with his right leg, smashing her head into the stage and kicking another in the head with his left leg. Ever the professional Miguel continued to sing, though with a concerned look on his face. “Let my love adorn you,” he belted out.
The rest of the singer’s show went off without a hitch. Dressed in a white suit, Miguel sashayed across the stage sliding his microphone to and fro, while billowing smoke and flashing stage light set a sexy mood.
After the performance Miguel took the girl backstage with him and took to Twitter to let the viewers know that she was alright. “got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay,” he wrote.

Miguel stuck with his bonafide hit "Adorn" off his second studio album Kaleidoscope Dream for his BBMA performance tonight. And we are not mad. The sexy crooner added a few different touches to the song for a fresh performance. And after a semi-stage dive ended with him kicking a woman accidentally, he still managed to play it off.
Check out the performance below:
By the way, the woman who was kicked was interviewed backstage. And she’s doing just fine….holding an ice pack on her head:
All aboard Air Bieber. Justin Bieber took his fans on a journey during his performance at the Billboard Music Awards. The teen idol, who showed off his tattoos with one sleeveless arm, performed “Take You” as chosen by his fans in an online poll.
Following an introduction from Ariana Grande, he emerged from a glass spaceship wearing drop-crotch leather pants, singing and dancing to the cut off his album Believe.
He later won the award for Top Male Artist, beating Drake and Flo Rida.
Take flight with the Biebs.
