Moments after Team Blake contestants Wendy Moten, Lana Scott, and Paris Winningham advanced to the Top 10 on The Voice, Moten took a scary fall on stage that brought production to a halt.
Moten had just wrapped her performance of the Four Tops’ hit, “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)” with coach Blake Shelton and fellow Team Blake members Scott and Winningham, when she tripped over a monitor on stage as she exited.

Moten fell face-first onto the stage and as her feet went into the air.
“Everything okay on stage,” host Carson Daly said with a concerned looked on his face. “Everything alright?”
Shelton and ‘Voice’ producers rushed to the stage to assist the Top 10 finalist, who appeared to be distraught after her fall.
“Just a quick second, we just had somebody fall,” Daly told viewers. “We have some people coming to help now.”
Moten’s coach, producers and fellow contestant Winningham were then seen assisting Moten as she exited the stage to a roaring applause and one fan shouting “we love you, Wendy.”
The show then cut to a commercial break, leaving fans wondering if Moten is okay.
When The Voice returned, Daly appeared on the screen with Moten by his side.
“Most importantly, we’ve got Wendy Moten here, who scared us all with that mishap on stage,” he said. “We’ve never had anything like that happen, are you okay?”
“Yes, I’m okay, I’m a little bruised, but I’m still ready to go,” Moten said as Daly added, “Well, we’re so glad that you’re okay.”
The three remaining Team Blake contestants have advanced to the next round and will appear on The Voice on Monday, November 29.
