American Idol hopeful Symone Black has the vocal tools to succeed on the show; she just needs to work on her stage presence.

The 16-year-old Rancho Cucamonga, California native fell off the stage on Wednesday’s kickoff of Hollywood week, leaving the judges speechless as they watched her lie flat on the ground.

“She hit her head,” says Tyler, who himself has taken a dive or two in his time.

So, did she make it to the next round? Of course, the show left on a cliffhanger, as we’ll have to tune in Thursday at 8/7c to see what happened.
