Here’s a bizarre, feel-good clip to start your morning. An unexpectedly embarrassing moment followed 12-year-old Chi Tahani’s performance on So You Think You Can Dance Monday night. Tahani performed Beyonce’s “Countdown” in front of three judges and a live audience. After her performance, Paula Abdul, Jason Derulo, and Nigel Lythgoe stood and waved golden tickets in the air indicating that the little star would move on to the next round. Tahani’s face lit up with excitement as she fell to the ground before running over to hug the judges. But as Tahani hugged Paula Abdul the look on her face was less than thrilled.
Before Abdul could move her off the stage, Tahani vomited. Abdul handled the situation calmly and gracefully with no concern for her clothes. She just wanted to make sure Tahani was alright.
After all the excitement, Tahani was asked to explain why she got sick. Her answer was that Abdul hugged her too tight and “all the happiness came out on her jacket.” How would you have handled someone puking on you? Most people probably wouldn’t have been as cool and collected as Abdul was.
This talented girl may never live down this peculiar moment but we can’t help thinking that it turned out to be pretty cute.
