Singer Miguel tries to leap over the crowd during the 2013 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on May 19.

What appeared to be an attempt to jump from one part of the stage to another, over fans, resulted in Miguel landing directly on the head of a woman, causing her neck to snap back.

Within minutes of the freak accident, the Internet was buzzing with GIFs and memes, many likening Miguel's performance to an episode of WWE Smackdown. Miguel quickly took to his Twitter account to address the accident.

The R&B singer was later photographed backstage with the injured girl, who was holding an ice pack. However, the Twitterverse was already having a field day.

Watch the painful performance below.
