'Idol' Fall Girl

Hospitalized with Busted Ankle

It all went down in Jersey last September -- 16-year-old Nia Drummond flunked her "Idol" audition ... and as she made her exit, accidentally tripped and fell down a flight of stairs ... an embarrassing accident that aired on "Idol" last week for millions to see.

0125_nia_drummond_EX_TMZ_small_vidWe're told Drummond was taken to a nearby hospital immediately after the nosedive -- where she was treated for a sprained ankle.

Thankfully, she's all better now. See you next fall!

From the look on her face she came down those stairs with alot of ATTITUDE(look at her lips all poked out),she was angry she didn't get picked.Maybe if she wasn't running down those stairs so quickly,with that ATTITUDE she would not have fell.As long as there wasn't anything wrong with the steps the only other reason I see her falling is because of herself and she'd have a nerve to sue.Its a shame how she crawled like that even more embarrassing.All she had to do was handle her loss better we can't win all the time.

16 year old All-American chick who cant sing and will probably end up getting a settlement for being a complete buffoon. Gongratulations America..

Just your plain old garden variety set up "Slip and Fall" I'm surprised one of her friends didn't dribble a little water on the stairs before hand.

Can't win the honest way? WIN THE JACKPOT LAWSUIT THE LOSER WAY!

Maybe the pre-audition should be: You have to be able to chew gum and walk AT THE SAME TIME.

Not cool of Amercian Idol to film her fall AND then air it. Come on! Did AI just exploit her or did someone maybe come to her aid and help her out. Regardless, this is low of Amer Idol.

Easily one of the funniest things I've seen in a year. If that sow had not been on a stampede like a disgruntled mad cow she may not have busted her hoof like that.

Its a shame that American Idol not only explioted her but also didnt even pay for her hospital stay from the slippery stairs. Its a shame that these people would bash a 16 year old girl they dont even know. What if she has a self- esteem issue? Another thing this girl can sing her booty off, she has sang with the likes of Elton John, Billy Joel, Fantasia, Alicia Keys and many many more. All of the people with the exception of one should be ashamed of themselves. FYI.. she didnt sue and isnt thinking about suing
