As noted at on Thursday, Symone Black of California, who sang Otis Redding‘s “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” during the American Idol Hollywood Week, is now fine after she fell from the stage that surprised everyone.

According to the report, Black, 19, was diagnosed of being dehydrated, who sought medical treatment after she fainted and fell on the floor from the stage, in front of the judges, with his father also watching her live performance.

Before the incident, American Idol judge Randy Jackson asked Symone Black why she have chosen that song; and while holding her hair tightly, she said she wanted to appeal to an older audience.

Jackson jokingly asked her if she mean that they (the judges) are older people and she replied “no”, but her legs started shaking as she tried to stand still, and suddenly fell to the ground from above the stage.

Apparently, the three judges, along with the entire audience including Symone‘s father were shocked as the poor contestant seen lying on the floor, with nearby stagehand personnel called for medics as the camera continues to roll.

Nevertheless, Symone Black woke up and was noted to have been able to walk on her own to seek medical attention, as the Thursday show revealed that she got a “yes” and will proceed to the next level of the famous reality TV singing contest.
