Idols contestant collapses and passes out while receiving Judges comments

Funke Lagoke american idolsgggggggggggggggggggg

American Idol brought on the duets round on Monday, which resulted in quite few big surprises. However, one moment that shocked everyone had nothing to try to to with the performance. This week, contestants were divided into pairs, picked by the judges, to perform duets. Some worked well, et al. struggled with mismatched and conflicting personalities. However, for Ronda Felton and Funke Lagoke, their partnership in rehearsals was one among mutual respect and support. Lagoke helped Felton overcome a number of her insecurities and belt a gorgeous performance of “Tell Him,” originally written and recorded by Streisand and Celine Dion. After the performance, the judges huddled together as Lagoke and Felton stood on stage, awaiting news of whether or not they might be moving on or going home. Katy Perry admitted that she felt Lagoke “wasn’t perfect,” while Luke Bryan said the songstress had grown on her and he wanted to ascertain more of what she could do. This left Lagoke’s fate in Lionel Richie’s hands. As Richie gave feedback — including some criticism for both singers — Lagoke seemed to sway a touch before reaching her hand to her face, and as Richie spoke the songstress completely fainted, falling hard, face first onto the stage. The judges and Felton rushed to her aid, and medics were called in as she remained unresponsive, while Perry looked on in fear, trying to not crowd the stage. Bryan explained to the medics that Lagoke had “busted her chin” within the fall and later the EMTs placed white gauze cloth over her chin as they lifted her onto a stretcher. She regained consciousness as she was wheeled out of stage and into an ambulance. A title card explained that she “was treated for dehydration and released from the hospital.” The only upside for the songstress — and her duet partner — was that Richie has decided to maneuver both of them on to subsequent round of competition, the Showstopper Round, meaning their Idol journey’s hadn’t yet come to an end. “It’s absolutely amazing news. i can not say that I’m happy during this moment, I’m worried about her health quite anything,” Felton shared. “That’s the amount one important thing immediately.


I just want her to understand that i really like her, I care about her, and that i just want her to be OK.” Fans watching couldn’t believe the shocking incident, and took to Twitter to share their surprise at the frightening incident. Meanwhile, Monday marked the top of the road for Claudia Conway, daughter of former political advisor Kellyanne Conway. The 16-year-old TikTok star tried her best with a duet of Harry Styles’ “Sign of the days,” but couldn’t quite live up to the horizontal bar set by her duet partner, Hannah Everhart, who ended up moving on to subsequent round. See the video below for more on Conway’s time on the show. American Idol airs Sundays and Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
