Jamming out in the pit at the Billboard Music Awards turned out to be a painful experience for at least one fan on Sunday.

During his performance of "Adorn," R&B singer Miguel attempted to jump from one part of the stage to another, over a sea of fans, but he apparently underestimated the distance and landed right on top of at least one fan, slamming her head onto the stage.

Miguel attempted to make up for the accident later, when he met with the fan, named Khyati, backstage.

"I think it's kind of clear what happened," he told Billboard. "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."

"Got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is OK," Miguel later tweeted, followed by, "Rock and roll made me do it."

Khyati seemed thrilled to be backstage, according to Billboard, and even joked around, saying, "I adorn him," as she held an ice pack on her arm.
