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!

You can just look at her and tell that she's already got a lawyer ready to sue.

That a girl, milk it for all that you can because you sucked at singing. I swear what some ignorant people would do for attention. WTF is this big enough news that it must be mentioned on TMZ? Are you guys truly that hard up for a story? Come on guys, this isn't news. Just like that dumb ho that fell into the fountain at the mall because she was texting and to stupid to watch where she was going. Now she is suing the mall?? Seriously, there are some sorry a$$ people in this world and apparently it doesn't take much to be on TMZ..lol

"Busted Ankle" huh. A sprained ankle-oh boo hoo. This isn't any big deal here at all.

July 2nd I fell and fractured my ankle as well as breaking my leg completely in half. They sent me home to await my surgery two days later. I thought I'd die. I have a stainless plate and 8 screws holding it together and the pain is still horrible. That's a "busted" ankle. Sheesh. Wimp.

Less accidents would happen if these young women would slow down and wear pants that fit properly! She was not used to running obviously..

I agree with Dawn. Her pants were so tight she couldn't get up off the floor, just crawled around like a seal.

Of course she will sue. It's clearly not her fault she can't walk down stairs. Somebody needs to pay for this!

What a fat-*ss slob! That was truly funny. I'm surprised her pants didn't split. There are SOME people that just don't know the meaning of buying clothes that fit. They look like human knock-wurst. Yes, you know she'll sue - that's the name of the game. Next time, run down the stairs a little faster, Porky.
