American Idol - Symone Black Falls from Stage
Symone Black
Was it nerves? Exhaustion? A simple slip?

Whatever the case, 16-year-old American Idol contestant Symone Black took a scary-looking fall off the front of the stage on Wednesday's night show, Fox offered no update on her condition, instead using the accident as a cliffhanger for Thursday's program. (See the fall at the end of the clip below.)

"Medic, please!" stagehands cried out, as Black lay crumpled on the floor, having tumbled off the stage, which looked to be a good 5 feet high, after apparently passing out.





Black's father was among those who rushed to her aid. At least one person tending to the California teen – who came to Hollywood via the San Diego auditions – said she hit her head, though that was not confirmed.

Fox used the accident to tease Thursday night's show, promising an update on Black's injuries as Hollywood Week continues.
