How did Wendy get hurt on The Voice?

Wendy fell over during the November 23rd episode of The Voice and was taken to hospital.

The contestant had suddenly taken a tumble by tripping on a speaker during a live group performance on the show.

Host Carson Daly said: “Everybody all right? We’ll take a quick second, we just had somebody fall. We okay?”

Following the fall, Wendy was taken off stage, with Carson adding they had some people “coming to help”.

He also said: “Unfortunate event from Wendy Moten, who is walking off and we hope she’s okay.”

She broke her right elbow and fractured her left wrist, meaning she returned to the following episode of the NBC show with casts on both of her arms.

Updates on the singer’s injuries

Wendy is still recovering from the injury, but continues to compete every Monday night.

Her arms are still in casts, but are actually blinged up with diamonds for most performances!

The singer’s latest posts on her Instagram suggest she is no longer in lots of pain. Wendy is definitely putting on a brave face for her fans, whether on the stage or online.

Despite the scary fall, it is likely Wendy’s arms will be back to their usual movement in the coming weeks and months.

If the injury was bad enough, she would have already decided to drop out of the competition altogether.
