American Idol Contestant Falls Off Stage in First Hollywood Episode

American Idol’s cliffhanger on Wednesday night’s episode had nothing to do  with singing.

The first episode of Hollywood week for the show’s 68 contestants was overshadowed by one Idol hopeful’s scary  fall right off the stage.

Symone Black, 16, from California had just finished singing “(Sittin’ On) the  Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding, much to the delight of the judges, when she  started to touch her head, stumble around the stage, until seconds later she  fell right off.

It appeared she fell head first and onto a camera man kneeling at the foot of  the stage. Her father is shown sprinting towards the stage.

“Oh My God,” Jennifer Lopez said.

“She hit her head,” Steven Tyler said.

Then it was time to cue the dramatics. Someone is heard saying “Medic  Please,” and “Daddy is coming right now.”  The judges are seen hovering  over as producers, medics, and Black’s father tend to the fallen teen. A quick  camera shot is taken of Black opening her eyes as her father clings to his  daughter.

Then cue end of episode.

Other notable moments included the performance from Jane Carrey, daughter of  Jim Carrey, Jen Hirsh, who sang a song by folkie Patty Griffin, and Johnny  Keyser who sang “Dreaming” by Amos Lee.
