The Voice contestant Wendy Moten fell after her performance on the live Top 10 results show Tuesday night. She seems to be okay, but the situation gave the live audience and TV viewers alike quite the scare.
Moten was walking off stage with coach Blake Shelton and teammates Paris Winningham and Lana Scott when she tripped on a speaker and fell. The Voice contestant had just finished performing “I Can’t Help Myself” when she took the tumble.
Fortunately, Moten is alright and in good spirits. You can see the scary moments for yourself below.

“Unfortunate moment for Wendy Moten, who is walking off, and we hope she’s OK,” said Daly, making sure the viewers at home knew Moten was alright.
After a short commercial break, the show returned, and fans were met with great news. Wendy Moten’s fall couldn’t keep her down, though it sounds like it hurt.
“I’m OK, I’m a little bruised, but you know what? I’m still ready to go!” Moten told Carson Daly after gathering herself.
Blake Shelton took to Twitter following the show to do a little deserved bragging about his artists making it through to the Top 10. All three of the longtime Voice coach’s singers got voted in and will continue, including Wendy Moten.
“Go, Team Blake! We got all three artists in. Wendy’s okay, don’t worry anybody. Hurt her elbow a little bit. I think she’s going to be fine. Thank you, America!” Shelton said in the video, offering fans an update on Wendy’s injury.
‘The Voice’ Coach Blake Shelton Told Wendy Moten She’s the Most Deserving Contestant He’s Ever Coached
Blake Shelton has been coaching aspiring musical artists on The Voice for a long time. Since 2011, the country singer has seen countless performers come through the competition. In all of his nearly 400 episodes, he hasn’t seen anyone quite like Wendy Moten.
If you happened to catch Moten’s performance a few weeks ago for The Voice’s Top 20, then you may have heard the massive props Shelton offered her.
“I’m gonna say this, and I’m probably gonna catch a lot of heat for it, but I don’t care. I’ve been doing this show for 21 seasons as a coach, and there is nobody that I want this more for, ever than you. You deserve this,” Blake said shortly after Wendy Moten’s Top 20 performance.
Tonight’s results show cemented Blake Shelton’s status as a favorite to be the winning coach. With Moten moving on alongside her Team Shelton teammates in Paris Winningham and Lana Scott, the dream is still alive.
Shelton has been here before, but then again, so has his biggest challenger Kelly Clarkson. Only time will tell who takes home another coaching title and which artist earns themself a record deal.
