‘Live to Dance’ Contestant Injured Performing

Dancer taken off stage for medical attention after falling on head during stunt on Paula Abdul’s new dance competition.

A contestant on the new CBS talent competition program Live to Dance injured herself during her performance on the show's stage. She fell on her head as she attempted a mid-air turn. The fall will be televised during Live to Dance's series premiere Tuesday night on CBS.

Following the incident, the unidentified contestant didn't seem to completely understand what had happened, telling Paula Abdul, one of the show's officials, "I think I slammed my head." 
"I think you did. I think you did," Abdul says in the clip from the show. 
Abdul added that she would feel it later, “Oh trust me.”
Shortly after, the contestant was pulled from the stage for medical attention.
