Billboard asked Miguel not to jump
After the failed stunt, which ended in him leg dropping one girl and kicking another, Miguel claimed that he got caught up in the moment. The explanation implied that the move was completely impromptu.
However, TMZ.com reports that officials for the BMAs actually ordered Miguel not to attempt the stage jump. When the “Adorn” singer approached producers for the show with his idea, they turned it down because they thought it would be too dangerous.
When he took the stage, Miguel disregarded their order and one of his victims may have suffered brain injury as a result.
