Nicole Scherzinger was left momentarily unconscious when she was dropped on her head whilst practicing an extreme skating routine on the new show I Can Do That!
Joe Jonas, one of the stars, explains how the new show works. “Here are six celebrities who are in a contest together. And each week we are in pairs of two and we are presented with a new challenge, typically a variety act or a performance and we need to learn it in a week.”
According to the Jonas brother, “then the audience judge at the end of the show its bragging rights.”
It was during the rehearsal for one of these episodes that Nicole took a terrible tumble.
She was attempting to do a move called ‘the headbanger’ that involved a professional skater lifting her up and swinging her around at an incredibly fast pace. Unfortunately, the skater lost his grip and Nicole landed hard on her head.
The 36-year-old former Pussycat Doll was rendered briefly unconscious, while Joe Jonas runs over to her and can be heard saying “when she landed she hit her head.”
Before attempting the stunt, the 24-year-old explained how he had conversations with Nicole making sure that she wanted to attempt the daredevil move. He admitted that “this has just become a very scary act.”
Luckily, the former girlfriend of Lewis Hamilton did not suffer any serious injuries, and sure enough, she gave the stunt another go, performing it for the live show and… she totally nailed it!
Nicole even received a well-deserved standing ovation after delivering the head-spinning performance.
We seriously have to admire he courage of getting back up there after such a scary experience.
